1998 Ford Escort ZX2 Hot 2dr Coupe


Review

I purchased my ZX2 used about a year and a half ago. With the exception of some trouble getting it started on some brutally cold winter days (which was remedied by a coolant flush which was probably due anyway) this car has been very reliable! I even drove it cross-country from NY to AZ and was pleased with the my car's performance. My only complaint- sometimes it gets a little shakey at the higher speeds, but much better than my last escort! Overall rating- an attractive, reliable car that was affordable for a college student even with lots of options.


Favorite Features

I like my 6 cd changer. At first I didn't like that it was in the trunk, but since no one sees it I don't have to worry about it being stolen. Also, the moonroof and keyless entry are great features.


Suggested Improvements

Ford needs to put a little more thought into the interior fabric selection because mine is a little tacky! Still a little shakey at higher speeds, but much better than my last escort.

Review

I've had my car for a few months, and i really don't have anything bad to say about it. It has a lot more power than I thought it would have and its performance is exellent.


Favorite Features

cd changer, sporty exterior, performance, gas milage


Suggested Improvements

cd changer needs to be up front instead of in the trunk. And there should be a way to get in your trunk if you loose your keys.

Review

Well, I just purchased a 1998 zx2 "hot" from a private party. The car had 62,500miles when i bought it. The car has every option available except abs because when the seller ordered the car abs wasn't an option then. I have all the service and maintanence records for the car since new. That in itself is amazing. Its a perfect car for me because the upgraded seats hug my back althought I don't recommend it to large frame people. All in all I am very satisfied with my car and never thought I would say that about a ford.


Favorite Features

Performance, moonroof,cd changer


Suggested Improvements

Inside truck release, interior could use a tad bit of remodeling
