“OK, had mine now for 6 months, previous car was a e36...”

Written on: 09/06/2008

OK, had mine now for 6 months, previous car was a e36 3.0 M3 that the mrs still has. The M3 is a great car, no one can argue with that so the Cosworth had to really give me something special to get on my good side. The looks are just untouchable, nothing looks like this, its really special. Interia is not the best but is still easy to use, and everything still works. Seats hold you in with ease, nice and comfy, maybe a little bit too high up but great side bolsters. I have had no problems with… Read Full Review

“Take your time looking for a Ford Escort RS Cosworth....”

Written on: 11/03/2006 by Dean Dowling (1 review written)

Take your time looking for a Ford Escort RS Cosworth. There's more bad than good. Avoid high owners, poor servicing record. Be sure to get an RAC check, this is a must! Get a good one and you'll never look back, get a bad one and you'll cry all the way to the bank. Parts are rare now and running costs are high. But no other car will make you feel as good and you'll have the world staring at you when you drive it! You have to be very careful where you leave your car, not all the attention it'll… Read Full Review

The Escort Cosworth is 1 of the most beautiful cars on the road.
It has blistering performance & they are easy to uprate at the right price the handling is great & the looks you still get when you go driving about in 1 is second to none.
To put it short the car is great & I recommend anybody who likes the look of the car to buy 1 you won't be disappointed… Read Full Review

I bought my Imperial Blue 1995 Ford Escort RS Cosworth in 2004. It was the best 17k I've ever spent. You knew when I'd been out in it as i was beaming from ear to ear. Everyone stopped and stared, children, old folk, EVERYONE! Definitely fit a bailey dump valve, you will see why when you do. All in all this car is the absolute BUSINESS!!!!… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/06/2004 by bilal bhatti (2 reviews written)

I thought the Ford Escort RS Cosworth was a good car--- I had a few occassions with coolant pipes bursting after ripping it but then upgraded to Samco hoses.

Practicality is only a 7 score because your always worried that someone is going to hit it in a car park etc.

Reliability is high as it was thrashed to hell and back and only broke down twice due to heat build up and some coolant pipes burst.

Value for money high as it brings a smile to your face.

But be warned -- remember it is a… Read Full Review

The Ford Escort RS Cosworth has the looks and the power 2 beat any of these jap cars, they also have the looks to go with it. I have owned mine for about 5 years and I will not part with it for any price or other car. It is 400bhp and the only word I can say is that they are the best cars money can buy for looks and power… Read Full Review

I have a 360bhp nissan pulsar gtir. Only had it a few months. I really like escort cosworths as they look good and are fast. I have not been in or driven one, but as my next car would like one. Are they reliable? as i have not had any problems with my pulsar so far. What is the best reg to go for. I hear some come with a smaller turbo than others. I will have about £10,000 to spend. I see some costing £20,000.

“The Ford Escort RS Cosworth is the best damn car I've...”

Written on: 21/02/2004 by fastnfurious (1 review written)

The Ford Escort RS Cosworth is the best damn car I've ever had. It does get a lot of attention, always from blokes unfortunately!

It's a very practical car - hatchback - so can carry a lot of stuff.

Go for an early turbo (92-94) model with leather and aircon and it will hold its value forever. Only 2500 built and prices are only going one way - up!

In standard 227bhp form it's fast but not so driveable. I've got a 380bhp GGR conversion which is incredible. 0-60 in 4 secs 1/4 mile sub 13… Read Full Review

get an mr2 turbo, gets female attention and be faster! 0-60 5.2 155mph standard for MR2
0-60 5.7 138 mph standard for the escort. You can get a 5 year old Impreza STI (300bhp) for the price of a 14 year old 227bhp escort cossie. Why on earth would you buy one????

Written on: 08/02/2004 by TURBONUTTER04 (1 review written)

I have owned many Cosworths but this was my first Escort (My previous car was a 400bhp RS500).
I bought it in oct 2002 for £17000, the car wasn't standard as it had a GGR stage 2 tune to 310 BHP but I have since uprated it further to 385BHP.

I find the Escort Cosworth a pure drivers car, its excellent handling, brilliant driverbility and excellent reliability make it a great car to own.
Although it drinks fuel like no tommorow it is fantastic for motorway driving and also a very comfortable… Read Full Review

I waited from the day they came off the production line until a little under two years ago, to get mine, at a steal of a price,(Red,one owner,under 30k miles and in show condition), of £8k and would not part with her for double that amount or any other car in the world,and I mean any. Not many cars get the looks, no stares that the Escort RS Cosworth gets when it is on the road… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/06/2002 by bunjeeman. (1 review written)

You really have to experience driving a Ford Escort RS Cosworth to appreciate it's true abilities and to look past it's awesome looks. The car is relatively difficult to drive quickly when compared to the latest breed of Japanese WRC derived competition, but ultimately more involving and rewarding. Overall the balance is good with an slight tendency to oversteer on the limit, but the grip levels are so high that this trait doesn't show unless you are really pressing on or being wreckless!

The review was absolutely spot on, I was undecided about buying a cosworth but went ahead anyway after reading a few reviews,
Now afer running it for a trouble free year it's the best thing I did, and if I wanted to sell it I'd probably get my money back.

You should try a super chip from www.superchips.com.
On a Phase3 it gives you an additional +110hp and you really feel the difference.

I have had 3 large Turbo Escort Cossies (Got a Ash Black one now).
<br>
<br>My first car I had converted to 350 bhp its a very fast car and drink fuel like it was water :).
<br>
<br>The Second was at 260bhp as I had to drive it a lot, Fast.... but no way need as fast as my first, but the fuel consumtion was much less (of course).
<br>
<br>The Third well lets see... and not worry too much about the fuel, the car looks so great that who cares...... If we were woried about fuel we would have got a micro !!!

I disagree. My cosssie was very rapid and very good. It did not suck petrol at all. The only problem was some hoses overheat and melt. Then you get samco ones!
