1998 Ford Escort SE 4dr Sedan


Review

I bought a used '98 SE Wagon with ~25K miles. Overall I am very satisfied with the performance and reliability of the wagon so far. The extra cargo area and roof rack have come in handy when hauling stuff and taking a short trip. Great Gas mileage (35+ on freeway with automatic trans.) and the controls are logically placed. Great Used car for the $ and features.


Favorite Features

Remote keyless entry, power mirrors, Cruise, covered cargo area, good gas mileage, responsive steering.


Suggested Improvements

Seats are uncomfortable, they need a higher headrest.

Just this past month the generator failed. first time I had to send money on it other then tires and windshield wipers. Currently 95,000 miles.


Favorite Features

Great gas mileage, good looking attractive car that drives well.
