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

The seat needs a better way of ajusting, nice as they are. Could do with another way (you will see if you buy one).

Performance

1.8 16v. Very quick with the right type of tyres it handles fantatsic. Bodykits are cheap and worth every penny.

Reliability

I've had 2 accidents in mine and after being repaired (touch wood), it has still got the proformance as if I bought it out the showroom.

With a bit of work you could transform your car, but if you don't its still ok and I would give it a 3 star.

Comfort

5 out of 5

Realy good on motorways. Round town is nice too. With the seats the way they go is realy comfy.
