    Howdy everybody, I just got my 1995 Escort Wagon 2 weeks ago. People, well family, advised me against it. But whats not to love? Its a lot smoother than my little blue tank (1993 Ford Festiva). I did a lot of research on the escorts before I decided to buy one that I thought had been taken care of well.

    I suppose I'm turning in to a gal that loves to dance and have old cars to tinker with. My dad thinks I'm crazy. Ah automatic transmission, manual windows.... but yet it has powered side mirrors!!?? It's so much more than, look I've learned new lingo already, a grocery getter.

    I look forward to learning a whole lot about my new used car addition and how to keep it running smoothly from the more experienced Escort members.

    If your family and friends advised you against an Escort, it's probably because they aren't car people. Which is OK... not everybody is. For a lot of folks, a car is just an appliance, to get from Point A to Point B. For the rest of us, there's Escorts.

    You've come to the right place.

    I add my welcome also.
    There are many folks who never open the hood of their car; if it dies they get it towed and the repair facility handles it; and they think they are normal.

    Welcome to the forums! The Escort is a great platform, sounds like you already figured that out in your research. Happy wrenching!
