Help! I need to replace my beloved '90 Ford
Escort hatchback (5-door, white). I want a new
car, but I can't seem to find any 4-door hatchbacks
on the market. Do such machines exist? Or must I
settle for a sedan or coupe? Advice please. I'm
looking for a low-cost vehicle.

There may be others, but the 4 door VW Golf comes to mind. Maybe because I own one?

The only 5-door hatchback seems to be the VW Golf. Don't overlook the Golf because it is an excellent car or hatchback, whichever you may call it.
If looking for a 3-door hatchback, consider the 99 Cougar as probably the best choice on the market right now.

This is a little off topic, but wagons offer a lot of the convenience of a hatchback. But if the size of a wagon is too big, you might want to wait for the new Ford Focus to be released. I think they one of the models is a 5-door hatchback.

The Ford Focus sounds interesting. One thing I especially like about hatchbacks versus wagons is not having all my gear exposed when I park my car - especially when I'm travelling. Looks neater too.

Guilty as charged, sichang! At least, speaking for myself.
You're right, the Daewoo Lanos didn't come to my mind. What about it friends? Are there any Lanos drivers among us? Or others with Daewoo experience?

Let me rephrase that... If you want to talk about the Daewoo Lanos or Nubira, join us here.
See you there!

No need to be so hard on Edmunds for not loving the Daewoo. I'm sure the people here go to great lengths to do the research on the cars they write about. Maybe they limit their research, etc. to cars that have been in the U.S. for awhile.
Just curious, why are you so eager to have people buy Daewoos?
