Cheap to run, plenty of room, 5 seats, good first ...

no power steering, slow going up a steep hill

The 1.4 Ford Escort is quite a car in many ways. Featuring 5 doors, a large boot and a sun roof, this spacious car certainly has all the features. It pretty much has everything you find in a standard car, except power steering which can make moving when stationary a hard task. Being quite an old...

“No, Im NOT An Old Man”

Low Insurance Group, Cheap(ish) To Run.

A Bit Sluggish

Despite the fact I drive a Ford Escort, I am actually only 19. I bought this car almost a year ago now, costing me only £2000. -=Features/Specifications=- I will not go in to major detail here, i dont want to baffle you all with annoying "techie" language, but heres a quick run down of my "baby"...

Poor handling, sluggish, prone to rust.

I bought this car a couple of years ago when I was in between cars, I have a van that is used for my Business during the day, but you cant realy use it for pleasure, or trips out to places. So I bought this car .. cheap ( £100) with no MOT, and in need of a few mechanical repairs. ***First...

Cheap all rounder

None

Having always wanted a Ford Escort since the early days of taking my driving lessons, 9 years on after passing my test I am now the chuffed owner of one. Four weeks ago I set out to buy myself a cheap run-around as my fiancé uses our main car for work. I sifted through all the classifieds in the...

lots of interior space and handy compartments.

rather low seats for little ladies like myself!

I owned a very reliable Ford Escort for just over 6 months. It was a K reg 1.4i L and never faultered once. The only real reason that i sold it was because it was broken into and it never quite felt the same to me after that. shame really because it served me well. it was very economical on fuel...

Cheap insurance, reliable, quite quick

Uses a lot of petrol, no power steering!! :(

I've owned a 1993 Ford Escort 1.4LX (5 speed manual, single injection) for about 2 months now and to tell the truth, its no BMW but its a great drive. Interior/Storage The front seats are a little hard but surprisingly comfortable with plenty of legroom. The drivers seat has angle adjusters on...

None

I've had my battered little Escort since January 2000, and it's done me proud so far. Ok, I admit that the body work has seen better days, and that the interioe would probably look better without the 2 tonnes of teletubbie biscuits on the floor, but as a little run around it's brilliant. It's an...

“Ford Escort 1.4 LX N Reg”

published 15/07/2005

Cheap to buy, reliable, low insurance, cheap parts

Electrics have been a bit dodgy when raining!

I bought this car 3 years ago and have never had any problems with it. Mine is a silver one with hatchback, 5 doors and rear spoiler so looks nice as well. The car was well looked after when I bought it and had been regularly serviced so if you are buying one make sure yours has! Its cheap to run...

Is old but runs like a dream, and looks it.

rust is always an issue

I have only been driving since March 2000 and in that time have had two cars. The first, a mini, the second an escort. My escort is a 1.4 D regestration escort and is in fantastic condition. My sister was bought the car in January 2000 for £600, it was in pristine condition and showed promise for...

“Its a middle of the road car”

Spacious, smooth drive, nice look

sluggish, handling isn't great

I have owned a ford escort for 5 months and My opinion is that it is a perfect family car, no more, no less.. It is spacious, has a big boot, quite comfortable, and is quite ergonomical. Ive also found its extremely reliable and has never had a problem starting even on the coldest mornings. It...

Looks good

slow,poor on petrol,breaks a lot

I have been the Proud owner of a L registed Escort for about five years now.I do like the car it looks good and feels good but it's always needing new bits. It's the single injection one 1.4i and it has to be said it isn't the fastest 1.4 on the road it does not like hill at all and fuel...

“Great runner”

published 24/08/2006

cheap insurance, cheap to run

not exactly good looking.

My mum had a P reg ford escort from new and just as i passed my test I got it. (she got a BMW 320d M). Its great for running round town especially if you dont like buying petrol. I cant count the amount of times Ive been driving with the fuel gauge under the red bar. The cheap(er) insurance was a...
