Ford Escort Hatchback 1.8D 5d (1993/K) - Owner Review

Lack of power steering not fun. Good enough on motorways. Shame about the stick-in-a-bucket gearshift.

Performance

Very average round town, better on motorways.

Reliability

3 out of 5

Didn't have any problems over the first year of second hand ownership. Problems will no doubt surface eventually.

Very poor. Get a decent alarm or at the very least a steering wheel lock.

Service

Sufficiently good.

Problems

Bodywork
Rust appearing in several places. Bumpers faded.
