Old Reliable by Hardscrabble of Otsego on 04/05/2008. Trim: 1995 Ford Escort Wagon LX, Owned 8 years.
Pros: We bought our 1995 Escort wagon in 2000. It had 40,000 miles on it. It now, April 2008, has 82000 miles. It is the most reliable car that we have ever had. I've replaced the usual--timing belt, struts, brake pads, but it has never let us down and is still going strong.
Cons: I don't dislike anything. The gas mileage, if driven carefully, is about 35 mpg but sometimes lower, and could be better.
Overall review: After five years with this vehicle, I regard it with satisfication. Even now, exposed for 13 or so years to upstate NY winters--sand, salt, snow--it still looks good. I have dealt with a couple of small rust spots, but even these were not noticeable. I also like that instead of buttons it has window cranks; you can't start it from a distance; you must lock each door by hand.
