Troubles with my 2001 Escort.

I have had many problems with tires on this car. Within a year I have had to replace every tire on the car. It does not matter what brand of tire I put on, the tire will end up flat in no time. The vehicle shakes constantly because the engine is too powerful for the frame. It freaks when I brake even though my brakes are in mint condition. The trunk has to be unlocked and pulled open simultaneously otherwise it will not open. The 6-disc CD changer is jammed and will no longer work. The passenger side window does not return to its place when the door is opened and closed. You have to roll down the window and bring it back up to fit inside the frame of the car.

Its unique and its my first car, first baby.

I like this car a lot. Its my first car so I was really excited. It does have a few problems, like the a. C doesn't work and the windows aren't automatic, but other than that it runs well. It is green and it is low to the ground which makes me feel more comfortable while driving and the seats are pretty comfortable. Overall it is nice and it's a good first car.

A good reliable vehicle that can take some abuse.

Given its age and with slightly irregular maintenance and a lot of miles on the odometer it has been a very reliable car. The thing we have had to fix most are the brakes. It also goes through tail light bulbs very quickly. We drive the this car everyday and for shorter trips. For trips over 2 or 3 hundred miles we usually rent a car.
