Ford Escort

I just want to tell the Ford Motor Company about a 1997 Ford Escort LX Sport. I had that car up until 2007, and it had 77,000 miles on it. There was no rust. I had been in many accidents in that car, (not my fault) people kept rear ending me, and the repair shop could always fix it. Men always wanted to buy it. I loved that car, it was a light green/aqua color. It is the most reliable car that i have ever owned. I am so sad that it is gone. When i go in my last accident, my insurance company finally decided to totaled it. Even with that, the repair men were calling me at the shop were asking me to settle with them. They were trying to offer me almost $4,000 for it. I just wanted Ford to know that to me, that was and always will be, the best car that i ever had.

Andrew Horton I made this comment before, but I will say it again. Thank you soooo much, Ford Motor Company, for making the 1998 Mercury Marquis. This car SAVED the lives of my parents. My father thought he saw a car coming into his lane so she swerved. He lost control and rolled the car at 45 mph. The car rolled and slid to a stop. My father came out of it with a cut on the head, mom came out with an ego and torn pantyhose. I have NO complaint about that since they are both elderly. I felt they both should have been MORE seriously injured than they were. The right side of the car was crushed. Ford, again thanks for a great car. Too bad the Mercury line is being discontinued.

Hello everyone I have an entirely new idea on the escort. short history ford went in to the wrc (world rally championship) with this car in 93 and came 2nd overall that year and finished racing in 98. So i was thinking if ford had a 98 looking model but newer that's kind of different looking like the challenger or the new camero. The specs should have an fr (front engine, rear wheel drive) drivetrain, six speed automatic transmission, powered by a three point eight liter ecoboost v6 diesel, With a gas tank that holds 25 gallons as a ford fan I have at lease a thousand ideas minimum to built or reimagine any car. any feed back would be helpfull thank you.
