Hope someone can help - my granddaughter and i are looking at used cars for her "first". We have found a 99 escort se sedan with 60000 miles on it and it seems to be in very good condition - EXCEPT - when it is idling - either in park, neutral, or in gear it has a pretty noticeable vibration of the steering wheel and whole car, actually. There are no vibrations when the car is actually moving, so I don't think it's alignment or a u joint. The salesman of course said all Escorts vibrate because of the mtotor mounts. Is it worth taking this otherwise "perfect" car to a mechanic to have it inspected before we buy? Or should we just keep looking?
