1988 Ford Escort GL 1.9 from North America
Best car I have ever owned
I have only had minor things go wrong with the car. Prior to my purchase of this vehicle, I owned a Ford Ranger. I bought this Escort to get me back and forth on my 120 mile per day commute, and the gas mileage of this car is excellent! This car had been in an accident before I bought it, and the body damage is still there, but is minor.
However, the frame up front began to separate, and it made my steering unsteady. This has been fixed, and the steering is true now.
The emergency brake handle quit working.
Goes through starter solenoids quickly.
I love this car and wouldn't trade it for a brand new car. Not even another Escort.
This car gets great gas mileage.
This Escort is very compact.
This Escort is very comfortable.
And, it has mildly good acceleration. Not bad for a 4 cylinder.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
