I'll never buy another FORD vehicle in my life! This damn unit has had 2 motor repairs and now it burned the engine control module. I give it adequate maintenance and very little mileage as I work less than a mile away from home. No excuses for such bad performance.

Escort LX V4

I BOUGHT THE CAR FROM A USED DEALERSHIP. THOUGHT I WAS BEING TREATED GOOD. BUT COME TO FIND OUT THAT THEY LIED TO ME FROM THE START. I ONLY DROVE THE CAR FOR 5 MONTHS, THEN MY MOTOR BLEW!!!! LOST COMPRESSION IN VALVE. THIS WAS SUCH A HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE, SINCE THIS WAS MY FIRST CAR I'VE EVER BOUGHT. SO IF YOU LIVE IN BREMERTON, WA, DON'T EVER BUY A VEHICLE FROM SHANNONS AUTO SALES!!!! THEY WILL LIE AND TAKE ADVANTAGE OF YOU.
