Inexpensive, reliable, and surprisingly quick
The climate control lever does not move past floor selection. It feels like its path is being obstructed or the cable isn't long enough... know what I mean?
I had a new 1989 Ford Escort GT and loved it in my college days. I purchased this 1995 GT from the original owner who was 80 years old and had been running synthetic oil on the motor since it was new.
For a small car it's great. Not a vette by any means - the 5 speed manual and 1.8 L combo is surprisingly peppy - and at 2500 or so she moves along pretty good. I have taken her to 90 MPH and the car still wants to go - it feels most comfortable (and safe) below the 80 MPH range. Overall it's a cheap to buy, cheap to operate, cute litte car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
