1998 Ford Escort SE 4dr Wagon

Review

Bought this car new for my late wife. I've used it as an around-town car since she died. It's been a great small wagon for that purpose. Very dependable, good quality, minimal repairs, great gas mileage, still looks good and drives well. (I keep it garaged and regularly serviced at the Ford dealer.) I expect to keep it until I die or wreck it.

Favorite Features

Economical, good handling, good utility (I usually keep the back seat folded down), good quality, minimum need for repairs (only replaced the starter and the interior blower motor in 50,000 miles).

Suggested Improvements

Front seat cushions too short to give good thigh support on long trips (I'm 5'9"), road noise at freeway speeds.
