worst car i ever had......

Engine problems, major repairs, broken piston and valve train. The same repair was made twice in lest than 2 years, after all i decide to sell it, even do i lost money on it. Never look back to a " Ford " pd. personal opinion.

Proud to call this my first car!

I am 16 years old and own this red Escort wagon. I LOVE IT!!! I updated the speakers, cleaned it out, bought new tires, put in a new radio, and I love it! I have no plans on getting rid of this car. I will drive it until I get in a performance-breaking wreck or it breaks down. Highly recommended. I love how the car's design screams 90's. It's great!
