1997 Ford Escort LX 2.0 spi SOHC


Reliable if it has low mileage


Gas tank leak, alternator, suspension parts, engine blew a piston, synchros on 2nd gear, muffler, and more I can't remember.

General Comments:

This car is known for being reliable, but I bought mine in poor condition and with high mileage. I drove it as such for 2 years, and just finally rebuilt the entire car. Here in Costa Rica, car's are very expensive, and it is worth repairing a motor and transmission instead of buying a new car. I also had the bumpers painted.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
