ProCheap, Reliable Engine, Easy to Maintain

ConsRust, Boring, Low Image

There was once a film, that gave us the oft' quoted maxim that "life is like a box of chocolates," this could well be true although I've never managed to apply this abstract to anything remotely connected to life, but then again I have a pretty odd way of living anyway. Imagine now, that you are...

ConsRUST(common Ford problem) not very safe

FORD ESCORT FINESSE This review is based on a Finesse model of an escort, this model is a 1.6 16v, and it was first registered in 2000 on a 'W' plate. PERSONAL OWNING I owned one of these cars from 2000 till 2006 unfortunately it was an insurance write off so had to be replaced. In the time I...

“My other car is a Porsche!”

ProGets you from A to B

Consbut not necessarily to C

We bought our Escort secondhand about 3 years ago from a well known secondhand paper. We decided to buy from there as our car previous to this one we also bought and had no problems with it. The Escort is metallic grey and is the original K reg. Had about 79,000 miles on the clock when we bought...

ConsNone.

Well, I'm not too sure where to start off except for saying that this is one if not the best car I've ever drove/owned. I recently purchased this luxurious Ford Escort a few weeks ago as my Fiesta was ready for the knackers yard. The car had almost 44,000 miles (genuine based on the service...

ProCheap with all electrical toys

Cons"Essex Boy" image

I have a Ford Escort 1.6 16v LX which basically has all the electrical toys plus I have remote locking too. (very useful, a must have, especailly good as a safety feature for women in car parks!) This car started its life as a company car & now has 140,000 miles on it & is still breezing through...

Consoffset drivers seat, fuel economy

Yet another car that I bought on the eastern edge of the M25, this was actually a good one. A 1994 M plate ford escort 1.6 LX. Coming from a very basic 1984 1.3 golf, it was amazing. It had a fews toys - power steering, electric windows. It had a 5 speed gearbox, decent headlights, proper...

I have owned my Ford Escort 1.6 LX for 18 months now and I paid £2700 for it. It is not a bad looking car at certain angles but models without the rear spoiler does look a bit bland. It drives fairly well on small roads and motorways. I have added alloy wheels to mine which has slightly wider...

ConsRust, comfort and looks

I thought this was a fantastic car after moving up from a 1.3 to 1.6, the car itself is very bland even for an LX model. It is much better equipped and more comfortable than the mk 4 and slightly safer with the addition of driver airbag and better seats. The car itself is as I stated an estate...

“The best car I've ever owned”

published 04/11/2000

ProToo many to list

ConsNo digital clock

I have recently bought a Ford Escort LX 1600 , and it is without doubt , the best car I have ever owned . Enjoyable to drive , and large enough to seat the entire family , the 1600 Vitec engine gives me more than enough power to cruise on the motorway or potter around town. The interior is...

“Reliable motoring”

published 19/09/2000

ProReliable, cheap to run

ConsDoesnt look as good as some others but so what?

OK, I'm not rich and I probably never will be, but my battered little Escort that cost me £500 twelve months ago is still going strong and I'm happy with it. Maybe I've got a wicked streak in me, but when I see people in brand new cars that have broken down, I have a little giggle to myself. My...

I'm eighteen and although ive only been driving for just a month, this is my third car. My first car was a Ford Fiesta and my second a BMW E30 318i. I have found my escort to be a very good car so far. It has been very reliable, and has started straight away every time. The fuel consumption is...
