Love my little go cart:)!! Works like dream:).

2002 Ford Escort

I love my car! Its pretty reliable for the most part. When I first bought it there was an issue with the fuel injector that was a little iffy, but my brother and my dad fixed it fairly easily. I've had it for 2 years before I had any other sort of problem with it. I just needed to get the serpentine belt and the alternator replaced and that was it! It's been 4 months since then and it's still running great! I do drive a lot just because I like to cruise around and my horses are kept about 40 minutes away from my house. For my first car, it's absolutely perfect:).

It is a great starter car or small family car for all weather types.

2002 Ford Escort

My car is an okay car, it gets me to where I need to be. I really have no complaints it drives really smooth, love the fact that it is a small family car and has room for everyone. With the right kind if tires it's meant for all weather types. It has a CD player an AUX plug in. The interior is very nice and well taking care of. The body of the car has no rust, it dents and dings and the engine is well maintain, with great gas mileage for town on the highway.

2008 Ford Escape with ongoing issues.

2002 Ford Escort

This vehicle has caused me an outstanding amount of issues. Within the 5 years that I have owned it, I have had to replace the battery once, the transmission once, the tires 4 times, and the brakes once. It is constantly having issues with stalling out, it gets stuck when I brake and "jumps" when I press the gas, or shuts off completely. It constantly has something wrong with it. I wouldn't recommend this car for anyone.
