I have had this car since I was 15. I am currently 21 years old and it is still in good conditions. Its not the most prettiest car, but it drives me across the state all the time for school and I feel safe driving it.

A well maintained car for the money

I have always enjoyed station wagons. I has the versatility of flipping the rear seats down to carry longer items in it, or carrying people. Great on gas mileage: 32 mpg, 60% city/40% highway. Even...
I have always enjoyed station wagons. I has the versatility of flipping the rear seats down to carry longer items in it, or carrying people. Great on gas mileage: 32 mpg, 60% city/40% highway. Even though it is a 4 cylinder engine, it has the get-up-and-go power if you need it on the highway (still drives great at 65, 70 mph).

In 2006 I decided to retire early and move to Mexico. At the time I was driving a 2005 Jaguar X type. Having visited Mexico on numerous occasions, I noticed there were a lot of Escorts so decided to look for one before I left. Eventually sold the Jag and bought a 99 Escort SE. Drove the car from Cincinnati to Guadalajara and still own the car. A real work-horse, Emma has NEVER left me stranded on the road. Maintenance cost are minimal, fuel consumption is still great at 120,000 miles and parts are available even in the smallest puebla in Mexico. I LOVE THIS CAR!

I bought a 1999 Escort back in 2009 as my first car. As a first car, my Escort was a car, just a car. Good things I liked were not the speed, but the amazing fuel economy. I also liked the styling. Compare it to a Cavalier or a Civic of the early 2000s, the Escort had the flair that the other cars lacked. When I bought it, the car had just over 109,000 miles. Now, four years later, it is running like a gem. Bad points, include a stylish but cheap feeling grey interior. The exhaust system costs more to get repaired than a comparable Saturn or Nissan.

I owned a '99 Escort Wagon for over 9 years. At around 145000 miles the automatic transmission gave out. Later, there was an annoying electrical problem. Nonetheless, this car never left me stranded. Over its life it gave 30.3 mpg (average). Repairs were never expensive (except the trans!).

Good everyday car, good gas mileage.

I've owned my 1999 Ford Escort LX for 6 years now (From 59,000 miles to 135,000) and like it. It's older now and experiencing mechanical problems due to parts wearing out (e.g. current issue is A/C compressor). It did have to have its transmission refurbished and we decided to keep it until it was dead since it cost us $3,000 (slightly less than it was worth at the time). Gas mileage in town averages 28-29. Highway 30-31 mpg. Road noise increases with speed, noticable at 60+mph. Even at 13 years old it'll do 90mph fairly easily and controls well though anything over 73+mph really kills mpgs. Good car for the do-it-yourself mechanics out there.
