1993 Ford Escort RS Cosworth 2.0i 16V Big Turbo


Expensive - but fun


Couldn't open the fuel tank, because of a defective lock.

Once the clutch cable broke. Sometimes all warning lights are flashing, when cornering a bit too hard.

General Comments:

What a great performer and so much fun to drive. When you can find one and afford it, get it, you won't regret a single penny spent on this boy racer's delight. And what other hi-performance sports car can take up to 5 passengers? What other sports car can be driven easily in the Swiss Alps during the hardest winter and leave all off-road cars behind?

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Well in there!! Very fast, I do agree a boy racer car that you won't regret, also all they features of a family saloon, the greatest car on the planet, they just kill anything else that touchs the road!!

Fair enough, they are great cars, but you're going too far saying they'll leave anything that touches the road e.g. Subaru Impreza, Mitsu Evo. Take into account these are 5 seaters too, and 4 wheel drive, and they are quite a bit faster??? And don't start with saying a Cossie can be tuned; I'm talking standard form. I mean the Cossies only about 244bhp as standard???
