Pros: "gas mileage, small station wagon functionality!"

Cons: "Not so peppy, but no speeding tickets, either!"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"I loved my Pinto station wagon, too. A plugged radiator cooked that motor, and I thought I would die. Then, I found this purple Escort station wagon---my baby. I took out the passenger seat and can fit 10 foot pipes in the Escort now. Like the Pinto wagon, I can fit my antiques in the back---more than in some bigger models. However, I liked the non-hydraulic rear door hinges on the Pinto---no eventual hydraulic failure with those. I will think I'm dying when my purple plum finally dies. My Ford dealer still cares for her, and they are always $ fair with me because they are PROUD of her, too---and appreciate my loyalty and love for her!"

"This car we have had since 2009, and it has always got the job done. We have only taken it out of town on a couple of occassions, due to the fact that we had a newer car to take instead. It has new tires and a new battery. It got me to work and back home, which was only 5-6 miles per day round trip, but it was always reliable. Perfect car for short daily commutes."

Most reliable car I have ever owned! Great!

Pros: "fun; reliable; economical; good performance"

Cons: "tight for people over 6 foot"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"Fun to drive; great reliability; good gas mileage (hint: with the stick shift, premium is actually cheaper than regular because you get MUCH better city mileage). If you take good care of it, it will take care of you! Ford has a winner here, and the performance is not bad at all for a 4 cylinder engine. Parts are not expensive, like some imports."

"good on gas and easy to drive as long as you are OK with a small car this car is better in town then on the highway. one thing that i wish ford never did was make it so the engine shuts down after reaching 100 mph. after all that its an easy going car if you keep up on maintenance"
