A fast comfortable car which is good value for money
The only fault has been the door open warning light staying on when the doors are in fact shut.
The 1.8 engine is fast and responsive. the ride is comfortable. The interior is fairly spacious and light (has sun-roof).
I've had the car for over 5 years now, travelled 59,000 miles and only needed new tyres and windscreen wiper blades.
My wife has a year old Ford Focus, but I prefer the Escort.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
