    My First Car — This car is my first car and I really love it. My parents bought it for me for 3.5 grand in '06. The acceleration isn't so great (0 to 60 takes about 12 seconds.) The breaking and handling, however, are very good. I can make very tight turns if I need to in my car fits in very small places. My car hasn't needed any repairs during the time I have had it - just the occasional tune-up before a long road trip. The exterior is nice but the interior styling is sort of lame... it could definitely stand to be spiced up a little. This car gets about 30 MPG. I'm very surprised how far I can go on one tank of gas (11 gallons.) Overall, I'm very happy with the car, but I definitely acknowledge that I could move up in the car world.

    Pros: Small, Cute, Practical, Never Breaks

    Cons: Bad Acceleration, Lame Interior

    Good Performance On A Small Vehicle — it was a great car for a university student goint to class every day, not too bad on the consumption of gas, and very comfortable all around exept when you had to take many friends around, great performance, the ac was the greatest in all my vehicles so far perahaps due to the large engine on a small car!

    Pros: Great for a single person

    Cons: Not so roomy and small for the highway

    Nothing Fancy But Great For Students — I LOVE MY CAR!She's ten years old, has 55K miles on her, and she still runs great. Other than replacing all the rubber parts and the tires cuz by now they're falling apart from age, and replacing one tail light, never done any work on her. Kind of a bland-looking vehicle, but trunk space is decent and when covered in stickers she's distinctive. Champagne isn't my favorite color but oh well. Stereo is better than I'd hoped for, wish it has a tachometer just for kicks but otherwise interior is user-friendly and of decent quality. Put full synthetic in it and it'll go 10K no problem. I average 26 MPG city and gotten up to 40 MPG highway before. Doesn't handle like a sports car, but it does whatever I put it up to without complaint. Takes dirt roads and 90+ MPH equally well. I know a few other people who have them and love them too.

    Pros: great MPG, minimal & easy maintenance,  easy to drive

    Cons: unattractive, common

    '99 Escort Zx2 Review — The acceleration has room to improve; the braking is very good, and the handling is superb. I have needed repairs (frame straightened, new bumper installed, couple dings knocked out--all after the wreck), and there are currently no rattles aside from a minor noise under the hood ever since the wreck. The interior is sleek and is easily maintained, however dust is very noticeable. The exterior styling could be better, but I'm not complaining as this is no high-end car. The gas mileage (I don't know the exact number) is good, and maintenance is relatively low. As for the fun factor, the car is very fun to drive especially when you take it out on curvy roads and put it's handling to the test. I would definitely recommend this car to a friend, but only as a starter car, there are definitely better cars out there.

    Pros: Great Handling and Braking, Low Maintenance, Good Interior, Very Good Gas Mileage

    Cons: Bad Acceleration, Could Look Better On Exterior

    Fun.....if You Like Tin Cans On Wheels. — Not the coolest car ever....but for a student (well, soon to be), its an excellent car. Nimble, fun, cheap on gas, the usual you would expect from a compact. Only issue is that it makes a helluva lot of noise on the highway. 110 KM/H and you hear nothing but a four-banger straining to make headway. It hasn't required anything in the way of major maintenance, and starts without hesitation every time.

    Pros: Nimble, cheap on gas.

    Cons: In a collision between a dog and my car....the dog would probably win.

    Black Escort — nice car. looks good. drives good. feel the bumps but got use to it. bit slow compared to my other. had a 2.5 v6 mondeo. that did shift. everyone tried to race. it looked standered but blew most other cars away. but in the end it had to be scrapped because couldnt afford to keep.

    Pros: great body

    Cons: slow

    Bb — I bought this car in 2005 with a hair over 100,000 miles on the clock. The photo shows the car as it was when I first bought. It was a nice looking car in good condition, and the Volvo reliability reputation was a clincher for the sale. Well, things went downhill and fast. ... (Read more)

    Pos Escort — hmmmm, where to start. i bought it after coming back from iraq as a cheap mode of transportation. im pretty sure if i took it to the drag strip id probably lose to a 49cc moped. it did come with a bangin ass system though. now all i gotta do is figure out how to get rid of the ridiculous trunk rattle. it has decent gas mileage. although, i have found out that it does really good powerslides.

    Pros: black, powerslides, gas mileage

    Cons: slow, rattles when the bass hits
