I Like It. — It's just a fun car to drive. It brakes quickly and is in perfect condition on the exterior and interior. It gets decent gas mileage and I can usually go a few hundred miles on just one tank of gas.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun to drive

Cons: It's a station wagon

Comfortable With A Huge Boot For Practicality — The Ford Escort is not infact an lx wagon it is a 4 dr sedan. Great little car 1.4 got it for £80 so it was a bargain, also has tow bar at the front and back so not standard either.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Comfortable

Cons: If you want to race in it.

Escort Performance — Performance - Acceleration since the upgrade is more than perfect. For braking it havent needed any upgrade it is perfect but there is room for improvement. Handling from factory was relatively good but it has been upgraded with racing bushings. Build Quality - Perfect some minor details. For gas milage it is the best for 12 years old it runs like a new car and wastes no fuel, better now that I made some improvements on air intake and exhaust. Love driving this car handles good, feels good and have the fun factor.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: 99%

Cons: Some parts that cannot be upgraded.

Good City Car — It is an old economy car what more should I say about it. The color is ugly green, the snow salt tore up the paneling and it is not really fun to drive. I am too tall to fit in such a small car.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Small and efficient

Cons: Old and Ugly
