Definitely buy it if you have the opportunity
- Neither one of my passive restraints work any more (Driver: 2009, Passenger: October 2011).
- Replaced a timing belt at 98,000 miles.
- Replaced a vacuum hose at 137,000 miles.
I have loved everything about owning this Escort. I love the sporty look, and how reliable it has been. It has been one of the cheapest cars to maintain I have ever encountered.
It handles awesome, and is very responsive and lets the driver know what is going on. I still drive it everyday, and reliability has been great through snow, wind, rain, and sunshine.
I have always had a love for Escorts, and I would buy another one in a heartbeat. My only complaint is the passive restraints quit working.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
