Ford Escort Hatchback (90-01)

Value

4 out of 5

An enjoyable "sporty" car in a low price bracket.

Costs

4 out of 5

Fairly cheap to run as long as you don't keep the revs up too high for too long!

Driving

4 out of 5

Great fun, comfortable and will respond well to every command.

Performance

4 out of 5

Quick acceleration and will hold the road well at speed, but just as enjoyable to drive around Town.

Reliability

5 out of 5

Not one problem as of yet, so top marks.

Image

4 out of 5

Skirts, spoiler and alloys make this a tasty looking car but can easily be copied.

Comfort

5 out of 5

Half leather seats are comfortable to sit in and plenty of room in the back. Seat adjustment to suit any size driver.

Security

3 out of 5

Good alarm system as standard, but a higer grade system is worth the extra. Also removable stereo front and locking wheel nuts for that extra security.

Service

3 out of 5

No pressure when buying the car, but the costumer service since has deteriorated.
