Great little car
By Dan on
1998 Ford Escort SE 4dr Wagon
Brought car with 96,000 mi and have 128,000 now. Only part replaced was a inner tie rod and with labor less then $100 No rust on the car after 2 northeast winters. AC still blowing cold and never serviced.
Gas mileage. I have a 5 speed standard and get an average 30 mpg city and 42 highway (going 70 MPH with AC on). Easy to reach cruise control buttons on the steering wheel. Easy to drive
2.0 L engine ok for flat land and gradual hills, but slow to accelerate onto highway. Needs inside trunk release.
