1998 Ford Escort ZX2 Cool 2dr Coupe

Review

This car was great for the first four years of existence, but soon began developing small problems here and there. Those small problems have now developed into large problems with the transmission, the flex plate in the shifter and the fact that I get a back massage each time it is at idle because the idle is so rough. Despite these problems, the car can still handle well through corners and can keep up with some of the most moderately priced vehicles. Great car for a new driver.

Favorite Features

Dashboard and controls are easy to locate and use. Handles great. Comfortable car for short road trips (200 miles and under) with amazing gas mileage (approximately 25 city/30 highway). Was the perfect first car for a female driver!

Suggested Improvements

Headlights could be improved with the addition of fog lights (some models do have these, but not mine) as well as higher wattage in the high beams.
