1998 Ford Escort ZX2 Hot 2dr Coupe

Review

I purchased my '98 ZX2 Sport brand new. After nearly 5 years, I've put 40K miles on it. I'm using Mobil1 sythetic oil in my car. It's never been in the shop for a repair. Sadly, my daughter is now 9-years-old and I need to spring for a 4-door car, so I've got to sell my ZX2 :( The car has been a fun car and my red paint shines as good as (or better) than the day I purchased it due to my extensive upkeep on the car. I'm not young - nearly 40, but this has been a fun car to drive.

Favorite Features

Split-fold rear seats, excellent heater and A/C performance. 15" aluminum wheels, low maintenance that is required on this vehicle, gas mileage and the Zetec engine.

Suggested Improvements

In 2003, Ford revised the ZX2. The new ZX2 uses a standard head unit for the radio/CD option. Ford should have always used this configuration from the beginning - rather than a proprietary radio.
