Not a fan of the look, LOVE the rest

1998 Ford Escort ZX2 Cool 2dr Coupe
I bought this car last September. I was originally looking for a ZX3 but this one was CHEAP. I test drove it and bought it the same day. The performance is unbelievable for a stock car, if only the aesthetics could be comparable. If you're young and want a tough, quick car, then this is it. I can't seem to break it, which is hard to believe. Parts are cheap too ($25 Cdn for a wheel bearing). Service it regularly and this car will last forever.. And if you live in an area where salt is used on the roads, undercoat it every year.
Performance. Amazingly comfortable for long drives. Pretty quiet at highway speeds.
No power passenger's door lock is ridiculous. Dash is very plain, but oh well. When windy out, wind noise around windows is very annoying.
