Ford Escort Hatchback 1.8 GTi 3d (AC) (1997/R) - Owner Review

Grips well to the road, but could do with being slightly lower to decrease the body roll.

Cheap to buy for what you get, but you won't get a lot when you sell it.

Costs

Parts are cheap as it's a Ford, dealership work is more exspensive, but may be worth it on paper.
