Looks good for the price. Shame it's so common takes the edge off

Comfort

Seats are quite comfy even though there sport seats. Plenty of leg room back and front.

Problems

Bodywork
Bodywork is completely clean so far. Although the doors will dent very easily, so be carefully in the car park!

Engine
Some Escorts have been known to over rev in idly. So be carefully what you buy. Fortunately mine doesn't do this yet and never will, touch wood

Gearbox
Older gearboxes tend to make life difficult to go in to reverses sometimes. I should know my first car was an 1993 L Reg!
