The Escort Mk6 1995-2001

Having owned every model of Ford Escort mk6 ever made and built repaired and stripped some call me a expert in this field, so any advice or knowledge I can give is no bother at all, The amount of these cars on the road now is getting less every day mainly due to rust as it takes no prisoners when it comes to cars especially fords, when buying always inspect arches, sills and rear chassis rails not to mention tailgates and bottoms of doors, the zetec engine ones are better due to vast amounts of spares available new and 2nd hand, another common area for failure is front wishbones and suspension springs, any buyer should always drive and press every button and switch checking it works, a good standard high spec model will always command a higher price than tacky modified ones so bear in mind this find when buying or selling 

rare models such as the RS2000 in 4x4 form are a rare sight as are standard GTI models that don't have fat exhausts and go faster bolt on parts and especially the GTI estate as they are very thin on the ground and fetch good money when kept and maintained well

The saloon 1.8 GHIA X with full leather trim is the flagship of luxury with every creature comfort you could want from a escort and has fitted the same 115ps engine as fitted in sportier models too,

Si models were always a great option in early form as some had the best engine of the range fitted as standard a 130ps engine which was far more nippy than the most models in the range and had a smaller steering wheel too

Cabriolet models especially the GHIA and SI models are well packed with goodies so always check the roof operates well and is in good condition and look for leaks in usual areas as mentioned in the first part of this guide

Plenty of model specific clubs and forums around for support with these cars but most are very quiet and lack atmosphere, however passion ford is a upbeat and busy forum which caters for all ford interest be it a humble escort or a fire breathing COSWORTH
