My Honda Accord is on its last legs, and I'm looking to get something newer. I've always liked Ford Escorts. I saw a decent one online, 95 4 door hatch, 5spd, power everything with 170,000km on it. $1000. Are these cars any good? Ive owned three old Hondas in a row 1991, 1988 and 1993 and they were all good to me. How are these in comparison? Parts prices, labour, reliability? Ask the average guy and they would say go for Japanese before a Ford, but Escorts are coming really cheap now? Any comments?
