Perfect First Car

by Technician from Chicago, IL on Sat Oct 20 2007

Very nice to have as a first car. The car handles like any other car except when in windy and unstable road conditions such as wet pavement. The car wants to fishtail but the FWD takes over if you accelerate a little. The exterior is very unappealing and so is the interior. The radio is hard to reach when driving. The car is pretty healthy after doing a thorough inspection but it's a little loud at idle, especially in drive. Very slow and lack of giddyupiness! No need for much maintenence the car rides fine and sounds fine. The only scary downside is you can't tell how many miles the car has because the roller only goes to 99,999 miles then relaps. But an overall great first car, unless you want high performance. The car gets me 60 miles a day easy. I was suprised at the gas tank release switch and trunk release switch under the seat, very convenient. The speedo only goes to 85mph, but who needs to go faster right? Oh, and maybe its just me but its hard to tell how close you are in back when parking, I got the LX 2 door hatchback version. Maybe the others differ in some aspects.

Most Reliable Car I've Owned

by Gord from Edmonton, Alberta Canada on Tue Nov 07 2006

I currently have 335,000 km on it, and still use it as a daily driver for a 47km commute (one-way). Extremely low maintenance.

SLOW POKE!!!!!

by Lawyer Girl from Boone, NC on Sat Dec 02 2006

This is my 1st car (Escort LX wagon) and I am very disappointed. The 88hp 1.9L 4 is not enough for a wagon!! What were they thinking! But it is very roomy. Can carry me and my two friends.. and our stuff.

Our Take on the 1993 Ford Escort

OUT TO POLISH ITS IMAGE, HYUNDAI GOES BUMPER TO BUMPER WITH 4 COMPETITORS.

In his day, D.O. Chung, president of Hyundai's beleaguered U.S. operations, might have been a pretty good race-car driver.

On a slalom course set up in the parking lot of Joe Robbie Stadium, Chung, piloting a 1994 model Hyundai Elantra, slithered the compact sedan through a series of tight curves with the finesse and panache of a professional.

Just ahead, another driver was putting a Saturn SL1 through the same paces.

''Saturn. That is a good car. But ours is better,'' said Chung as he drove.

Hyundai has been making a lot of noise lately in an effort to convey the message that its cars are better than most car buyers realize... Read More
