Ford Escort Hatchback 1.8 GTi 3d (1998/R) - Owner Review

With standard suspension tends to be 'wollowy' on tight bends. Uprated springs makes the difference.

Value

4 out of 5

Worthless on a trade in. Sell privately.

Costs

Servicing at main dealer inexpensive.

With standard suspension tends to be 'wollowy' on tight bends. Uprated springs makes the difference.

Performance

4 out of 5

Once over 3000rpm, a smile comes to your face as it perks up and say hello.

Reliability

5 out of 5

40000 trouble free miles. Only a battery and tyres to date.

Image

4 out of 5

Doesn't have that boy-racer image so much as the XR3i did. Stylish RS body kit makes it stand out from the LX!

Comfort

3 out of 5

On long journeys the seats can become a bit uncomfy.

Security

Well only a standard Cat 2 immobiliser and alarm. Get a Rockweiler in there or upgrade the alarm.

Service

5 out of 5

My main Ford dealer are the only garage that I trust to work on my car.
