“RS Shifts your money”

published 15/07/2002

Shifty, a fast paced motor

Expensive to drive in

The Escort is an honest member of any family, and I hear you say why? Well, its a drug to the young tuners, it’s a seat for the older learners and it’s a car for the high-earners! With my Corsa sold, and my Seat off the road, I used my dad’s car to drive to Leicester and back...

“RS Heaven”

published 22/09/2000

Looks, Performance

Lack of Ford Dealership Support

Yeah they are unreliable at times, noisy down the motorway, Recaro's uncomfortable on long journeys, and insurance absolutely shameful, but you just cant beat them if its good fun your after in a car... Personally buying my RS was a dream cometrue having wanted one since the age of 16.. bought...

“My Escort RS Turbo”

published 04/12/2007

Rare, Tuneable, Desirable and Fast

Addictive

I`ve owned a black 1988 series 2 for 9 years now and it just keeps getting better. Every year they bring out faceless, soulless plastic cars and the RST just looks better. It`s so tuneable and 200 bhp is easily achievable on the series 2 as they were de-tuned from the factory for road use. All...

“RS TURBO SHED!!!”

published 02/08/2000

Quick Quick and Quicker

Noisy noisy and Noisier still!!!

When I was younger I always wanted to own a Ford Escort RS Turbo. When I was 25 I finally realised my dream and bought a clapped out G reg Black RS Turbo. What a shed and to think I sold my K Reg Fiesta RS 1800I to get it!!!It was quick but noisy, unreliable kept breaking down, etc. I bought a K...

“Best car ive had”

published 08/03/2005

Can be modified to the max

High fuel consumption

Ever since I learnt to drive I always wanted a high performance car. I started with a 1600I Orion, which i thought was nice, then upgraded to a XR3I. A little while into having the 3I someone offered me the Turbo which at the time was complety standard. It really was allot faster than I was used...

Cheap and cheerful

None

Styling a Ford Escort is dead easy, and for young drivers wanting a good looking but cheap to afford car, the Escort is the obvious choice. With models starting at 1.1 litres, it is easy to get insured for little. Ford's CVH engine was a masterful piece of engineering, and as such is easy to...
