Ford Escort Review

Historically Escort mildly presented as an unreliable car. Only from 2/95 to 7/98 quality was improved, at least as far as the petrol versions.

7/98 production stops Escort in Germany, Focus is presented. (In England, the Escort continued production under the name Classic)

Offering Escort second hand is still great, but beware: the difference in quality is huge. There is hardly another car through so many face-lifting, changing his details on the front, the radiator grille, grill a la fish-nose, changing rear elements, etc. However, “evargriynat” Ford failed to show in terms of quality.

After 7/98 production continued in England, but the British “classics” are marked by a miserable quality. Some precision can be sought only in the most recent models of the German gasoline production. Even with the introduction of the new model in 1990 had a false start because the cars were equipped with old engines than its predecessor. On the other hand, efforts are being made because the program had different body variants: sedan (Orion), estate (Tournament) and even convertible. For the 1992 model technical innovation finally came and under the hood. Petrol engines complying with this generation, covering capacity of 60 to 150 horses. Engineers from Cologne but also failed to offer an acceptable diesel Escort.

Diesels are offered are highly cultivated, and generally spend a lot of unreliable. Gearboxes also give problems, despite attempts at improvement. Motorized escort is well with the modern engine of the program – a 1.6-liter petrol with 90 hp With this car has enough agility and ease of movement. Since the beginning of 1995 have changed the settings of the chassis (this is the version with fish snout) that gave Ford sporty characteristics. Although over the years many of the faults were corrected, some basic flaws remained until the “death” of the model. Focus only heir can claim to rival VW Golf.

The most common damage in Ford Escort

Engines: engines for all to watch out for suspicious noises, frequent damage to motors caused by blighted heads gaskets, timing belts and broken thermostats hanging.
Drive: a large number of defects in gearboxes
Electric: faulty fuel pumps, lights fading cockpit instruments, numerous problems with the generator (model 93) Diesel versions suffer from problems with starter

Ford Escort Pros and Cons

Ford Escort

1998 Ford Escort Cabrio

More than three decades Ford is fighting for its place among the elite of the European mass car class, relying on the Escort. Finally in Cologne realized that radical change is needed if we are to pull ahead of third place. Thus was born Focus, a five-year period after its debut still leads the charts in sales in some countries. To reach this market triumph, however, the German subsidiary of U.S. giant had years to breathe the dust of the VW Golf, Opel Kadett / Astra, and often the French manufacturers. The latest attempt by Ford to re-invigorate the old name came in September 1990 when he began selling the fifth consecutive generation Escort. Completely revised bodywork and partially modernized engines had to attract fickle European audience, but the model does not work out again. To maintain interest in it more or less alive, the company had to refresh twice in 1993 and 1995-a. In the last years of his long career Escort survived thanks to the opening and liberalization of Eastern European markets, which supplies Ford assembly even opened branches in Poland and Belarus.

Despite the laudable efforts of the Cologne company, however, Escort and remained last in the race with the German competition among compact. Wines that not only wore nondescript bit outdated design and range of engines and the quality of workmanship. Indeed, along with changes in the appearance of the last generation model, Ford made a lot for its technical perfection. Too frequent upgrades provoked the just anger of the owners of Escort, whose vehicles are depreciated rapidly after another facelift. This policy of the German company, however, can only be welcomed by buyers market “second hand” to get the chance to get a new car for relatively modest compared to the prices of rivals means. It won the Ford compact mass of fans who appreciate its practical body, wide selection of cheap modifications and maintenance.

Relatively accurate assessment of the quality of the used Escort most easily be done by the rule for the year of manufacture – the later the better. The agency will act wisely if extremely cautious approach to cars from 1991-92 Specimens manufactured after 1995, of course deserve the most serious interest, but their prices are different. Question was not only the age of the car. The constant modernization of the model leads to changes which give rise to some Ford fans talking about the sixth (1993) and seventh (1995) generation Escort. Perhaps this is the place to mention that the model of the same name, produced for the U.S. market since September 1990, has nothing to do with its European “namesake” is created based on the Mazda 323 and also all the details are made in inch sizes.

the compact German. In the autumn of the 1992nd he obtains convex oval grille hood and tail squat and three years later was again revised front – this time for the last time. The build quality of the cars at the start of production is hardly comparable to the later specimens. This is primarily for corrosion protection of the body. In view of the Escort from 1991-92 you should check the condition of the doors, fenders, side sills, the floor area in the front passenger seat and around the battery. Also rusting hinges of the tailgate, which also has a habit of “treason” and do not fit the lock. Serious illness of the compact Ford are shoddy door seals, windows and shibedaha that frayed healthy four-five year operation and flow. Otherwise pleasant salon Escort tease with staggered front seats, sunroof and clumsy tapping the dashboard assembly. In the body constantly carry parasitic noise from squeaky strum upholstery and decorative inserts. Bleak picture is complemented by the low quality of plastic parts – fragile handles, levers and knobs to adjust the seat – and the poor efficiency of the ventilation system. In December 1991, Ford replaced the air duct and at least provides an even flow distribution over the entire surface of the glass hurricane. Despite the measures taken and progress obviously the cars of the later stages of production, Escort remains a terrible fit as among the German production in class. In this respect it or save a choice of body styles (hatchback with three or five-door sedan, wagon and convertible) and modifications or broader range of

Engines

Ford Escort Cosworth RS Luxus

In older specimens it is reasonable to rely on petrol engines covering the widest range of tastes and needs. Escort is equipped with a four-cylinder petrol engines with a volume of 1,299 cm3 (J6A, 60 hp), 1392 cm3 (F6F, 71 or 75 hp) 1598 cm3 (LJF, 105 hp) 1597 cm3 (Zetec, 88 or 90 hp) 1796 cm3 (RDA / RQB, 105, 115 after 1995 or 130 hp in the special series) and 1998 cm3 (N7A, 150 hp. village). Over all stay vresiite Cosworth RS (1993 cm3) with their 220 hp straight sinister Of course, not forgotten fans of diesel. For them, there are two versions of the same engine with a displacement of 1,753 cm3 air (RTF, 60 or 70 hp in 1995) and supercharged (RTH, 90 hp).

Unfortunately the motor compartment of the Escort also hides some nasty surprises. The most painful of them is called a broken timing belt. Predominantly diesel versions until 1995, but it is not rare and petrol. Ford launched several attempts to correct the error. In December 1991st have changed the type of belt, pulley and housing a gas distribution mechanism, in May 1993 began the installation of a new, more durable strap with five instead of triple ensure, in March 1994 – again a different roll, in August and November 1995-a – new housing gas distribution mechanism and tensioner with improved attachment. However Escort engines remain extremely sensitive in this respect and 50-60 after driving 000 km necessarily timing belt should be changed to avoid investment in new cylinder head. The earliest specimens from 1991-1992, created and other care. Owners of 3% of these cars are deposited to replace a broken crankshaft bearings for shoddy. Total pain in the older generation engines, higher fuel oil due to worn valve rubbers. 1.3, 1.4 – and 1.6-liter engines from 1991 92nd are known for their habit of fading at idle and burn hard. The biggest of them often creates problems with electronic ignition and automatic choke. All 8-valve and diesel versions are quite noisy, and 16 ventilovite versions from 1992-93 sometimes experience difficulties in recruiting because of bad turnovers closing valves.

of the Escort. Difficulty shifting, reverse waiver “enter” and unpleasant grating sound of the gears in the transmission are not rare in cars from 1991 92nd. The clutch vibrate (especially diesel) and wear sometimes after 40 to 50,000 km and oil leaks can lead to costly repairs of the box when no action is taken to correct them.

Despite the high gear ratio, the steering wheel of the Escort-s without servousilitel is extremely heavy. However, this is the smallest disadvantage

chassis

The modernization of 1995 swabs suspension wear out much faster than nomralnoto, resulting in the front end started to knock. Dampers are weak (especially cars from 1991-92), and spring is “tired” earlier than expected. The list goes on torn pads supporting the engine and split sleeves of the coach.

The brake system

an Escort is not flawless. The front discs are susceptible to thermal deformations begin to “fight” and wear out quickly. Because of this, in January 1992, Ford began installing a new, softer lining, which in turn means their frequent replacement. Often handbrake while not blocking both rear wheels or did not work.
Trouble creation and

electrical system

Along with the details, the failure of the light switches and indicators on the steering column, lights and “sleeping” speedometer showed many defects starter, dynamo and not block electrons ignition. On the dashboard indicator light missing the critical residue in the tank and the fuel gauge is an absolute visionary. Back to the earliest Escort-and freedom-loving nature of the latest generation display central locking.

The main advantage of the compact Ford remain competitive prices for used copies and relatively cheap service. Although it can not compete with the increase in quality achievers in the class, Escort interest for easy maintenance and pretentious technique.

Comments from owners of Ford Escort

Post a Ford Escort 1.8 TD 1997

Impressions of the interior of FORD ESCORT:

I am 190 cm with significant dimensions almost 130 kilograms, and as such is expected to fit very difficult. Yes, I did. Car front and convenient driving entry and exit difficult-I model has no adjustable steering wheel, rear seat is comfortable for two adults with a slight compromise my privacy, when four passengers passengers behind me that is difficult to fit in my normal position the seat. The materials are very high for the year of manufacture and relatively low-end equipment. Compared with the above example is like cars with at least 5 years more modern car and the price is at least 20% lower than golf as an example, and it is air-conditioned Ford. These are real data from my shopping. The equipment is good quality, currently driving a new car, although completely different class and have a basis for comparison. Car-friendly urban driving. Designed for long trips. The city is less compromise with poor visibility in the mirrors, very large dead zone on the left smaller mirrors, lower-slung seat and poor visibility when parking front wipers are dumb selected intervals of movement, lights illuminate better if the bulbs are good, substantial volume of the trunk.

Dynamics is inherent in this engine. Strange to spot successes and outline of this compartment and the low ground clearance of the platform. Engine is 75 horse car is still great (I do not know how much it weighs), the fact is that it is dynamic, it accelerates rapidly compared with the rate of departure of a large airplane, very slowly, a lot of fuss, no effect, but …. …… roadholding and cornering is excellent with a slight over-steering the rear but I pasfa such behaviors, overtaking at speeds between 70 and 100 km is pain, but 120 odd weel, turbo includes about 2100 to 2300 rpm, but raise Does speed is amazing. Often a long drive over 170 km as a record of my 195 very long legs. Perfect brakes, good speed especially the third and fourth. And interesting, but the snow and ice because maybe the best tires on the market, but the car’s superior handling. Fuel Varna-Sofia-Varna at 100 to 120 on the highway and 150 kg heavy return flight without stopping and sudden accelerations due to the nature of the cargo, fuel 3.78 / 100 km. Record. Normal consumption is around 4.4 to 4.8 extra. Urban than 8,5 / 100 km.

Impression management / suspension, stability, ride a FORD ESCORT

Driving is very straight and slightly, but long and fast curves leads to the release of the curve. For its size it is very maneuverable and easy to handle except in cases of abundant water when just a block and servo goes bad. Suspension and ride hard and bad in our craters. I changed my plugs and absolutely all natural hanging in my desire without front springs. Previous owner had used cheap and rotten parts of Astra. In a workshop I was told that perhaps this model is borrowed suspension larger Ford Mondeo. Only inserts and pads break, but I’m very careful. The brakes are amazing and winter are phenomenal. The tires are 14 “Goodyear Ultra Grip Winter 6 – the best on the market for its time behavior phenomenal winter. Goodyear Summer Dira Influenza something stronger summer tires but the other car got better.

Main disadvantages of FORD ESCORT:

Ford Escort

Ford Escort Cosworth

The biggest drawback is the low clearance. Extremely low car. And rot. Hey people Theia cardboard cars were going to be more resistant to water. Many poor performance and difficult to repair. I changed my entire floor took 400 euros, then the price of a car around 2000 euros. Then decay thresholds fenders, the boot is now decayed and is now knocking. Rust under the Ford logo and model name below TD, rust in the middle of the wheel guards, rear wiper nozzle, all curves in sheet metal as the plastic edges of the doors. Stiffer suspension. Original tape fucking. It is typical of noisy diesel ford. Minor physical damage to the body as olepen fabric ceiling in the trunk of overheating slatse, turn signal does not turn off when straightening the steering wheel and more. trifles.

Main advantages of FORD ESCORT:

Very tough engine. Very long drive at high speed and the car is up for the job. At speeds above 120 km car sen best.

Features support for FORD ESCORT:

Maintenance unless changed completely under and changing of porters tips rear shocks and springs, front pads and overheating due to a single setting of the engine gasket and all this only once because of me overdoing it, a significant problem with rust everywhere. When using original parts I have not had serious problems, but take good care of the car. Put candles for a good long winter fire. Problem is my broken seat, but I’m pretty big and I relaxed it just cracked.

Impressions of the interior of FORD ESCORT:

Ford Escort

Ford Escort Tuning RS 2000

Model is the last before the Mondeo and externally quite like it, the front speakers (up windscreen) are huge, draped in the most obscuring manner, seat upholstery, dashboard and control elements – in October, the electronics is OK once you learn how the wire which can be fixed. Outside looks great, but the three-player back to the mix, drop seat allows spends enough luggage if necessary but no rails roof. Donut and the controls are easy and intuitive (all, pedals and dashboard, and others). Latches on the doors and rear open gaps, but work without changing, seals on the doors … maybe better. Prevents higher tires. Basically it seems a cheap plastic trash American, but an old car that’s lower class

Impressions of the engine / transmission, power, flexibility, fuel for FORD ESCORT

The car seems to be poorly suited for urban engine slowly enters (even summer waiting 3-4 minutes on site), quickly wasted parts clutch and gearbox, 5 gears are many. better for all conditions except under the 10 km / h (congestion and skillful sites), probably why wasting these parts. Even if the gas engine is good enough to take even load 300 kg 200 as fuel is hovering around 9-9.5 extra urban 8.5 irrespective of load and speed. Winter is getting less. With LPG swallow +1 l/100km and power declined slightly, much agility.

Impression management / suspension, stability, ride a FORD ESCORT

Management in all aspects of urban and suburban normal is ok, previous car was rear and it was feared that it would be bad, but not even with dragging a corner handle well (overload, the speed is good ), the suspension crashes terribly fast, but the car was hit and then the geometry is changed, probably comes.

Honey and missing parts not good chassis, low bad with wiring (such as wires and sensors), too soft suspension is a bit heavy

Impressions of the interior of FORD ESCORT

Inside, the interior is very nice. Have been used better materials and colors (unlike Ghia version that is plastic-like mahogany – very ugly). Instrumentation and controls are simple and easy to use. Unfortunately for me I was close (I’m 198 cm). To drive my seat back and given maximum behind me can barely sit person. There is no “articulated steering” which would increase driving comfort (when it has Ghia). Otherwise people up to 175 cm car is comfortable. Wipers are OK headlights too. Trunk is large, but the car is not loading (such as Opel Kadett).

Ford Escort Cosworth RS 4×4

Engine is quite noisy, otherwise works well and is quite dynamic. Car and lacks good acceleration from (although I drove this Ford without turbine, but there are tragic things). Climb steep hills well, even without acceleration. With the engine for three years I have not had any problems. Do not run oil, combustible oil. The turbine works well. Includes at about 2300 rpm. Slammin ‘nose’ of 4000. Average fuel consumption 8/100, 7.4/100 urban, urban approximately 9/100. The gearbox is good. The speeds are not too Cucina nor too long. The highest speed I lifted is 180 km / h with three people and luggage to ceiling.

Impression management / suspension, stability, ride a FORD ESCORT:
Governance is good. The suspension is firm, but it’s a station wagon. This is a car designed for roads, not holes. Frontal crashes at most about 8 months, but it depends how many holes hit and in what ways you drive. When you need replacement plugs take its BMW 5. Same size, but are more healthy. The difference in price is about 6lv. per set. Drive with original rims 13” Ford RS 6 beam (be healthy) and 175/70/13 Pirelli tires. I recommend, however, if you can put 14”, 13” because the car is low.

Main disadvantages of FORD ESCORT:

Rust. Many rust and rot. All panels (skirts, fenders …) have welded, no bolts, which makes changing them if necessary and more difficult.

Main advantages of FORD ESCORT:

Very strong engine.
