My first car, still drive it to this day!

In 2020, yes, 2020, I still drive a bright red 2002 Ford Escort SE. I bought it as my first car in 2018 for $1500 (80k miles) with the only issue being AC needed to be fixed and a new bulb for a blinker. I will say that my friends do jank on me for having an “old ugly car” but honestly I love my Escort! I do agree with the other reviews, it idles and vibrates badly. However, it has never left me stranded. The only major problem I can say that has to do with this car is that a lot of the small parts are very hard to find for it now-a-days. Currently my IMCR is stuck open causing the check engine light to be on, makes gas mileage bad, and for the car to idle even worse. Not a major problem but frustrating when you can’t find the part to replace it with. Overall, I definitely recommend this car to anyone needing a cheap reliable daily driver. It accelerates pretty well, brakes well, and is fun to drive! If you take care of it, it will take care of you!


Fantastic starter car and reliable!

This vehicle is reliable, good gas mileage and never lets you down. It has gotten me through snowstorms and heavy rain. I've travelled across the country and never gave it a second thought. When repairs were needed it was cheap to do so.
