I have owned this car since it was almost new (Ford owned it for six months and sold it with 16,000 miles on the clock at a good discount off the new price). It is a high spec 16 valve Ghia with air conditioning, alloy wheels etc. The car is very comfortable, and the chenille upholstery is still in extremely good condition. This car is the right balance between being spacious inside, and easy to park. It still beats most other cars off the lights and gives good miles per gallon (litre) on long journeys. It does rust a bit around the wheel arches, so it has needed some cosmetic attention, but that's not surprising when it is almost 17 years old. If only I could buy another newer model, as I've not found another car I like as well as my Escort.
