Ford Escort Hatchback (90-01)

Value

3 out of 5

Cheapish to buy second-hand.

Costs

2 out of 5

Paid a bit too much for mine I reckon.

Driving

3 out of 5

Ok, but that steering is heavy.

Performance

2 out of 5

So slow... I think I should have bought a turbo version because mine gets left standing by Mini Metros.

Reliability

3 out of 5

Mysterious electrical problems keep occuring.

Looks the same as any other Escort... it's the engine noise that gives it away.

3 out of 5

Seats are comfortable.

Security

2 out of 5

Locks can be weak as are most Fords at this age.

Service

3 out of 5

Cheaper from the scrap yard.

Problems

Bodywork
One good thing... the body on my Escort is sound as a pound.

Engine
Very loud... sounds like a Land Rover... shame it's not as fast as a Land Rover.

Gearbox
Clutch has a mind of it's own. Sometimes smooth, other times not.

Other
Electrics weak, mostly due to water leaking in. Rev counter not working. Engine cuts out sometimes due to another mystery electrical problem.
