10 years and still going strong!

1998 Ford Escort SE 4dr Sedan


We have owned this car for 10 years and we can't complain. We've never had to replace anything except for a brake, the alternator, and some tires. This car has been on 3 long road trips (about 650 miles each way with a dog) and we had no major breakdowns. The car is still running (even with over 200,000 miles on it) but we're finally going to purchase a new 2007 Elantra so we will donate it to charity. BTW: We have the bare bones model-5 speed manual, cassete player (no cd), power nothing, no spoiler, basically just a shell with an engine and some tires.

Best Features

Durability- it's like the little engine that could! Outside styling- I always thought the front looked like bugs bunny.

Worst Features

Standard CD player and get rid of that ugly mocha frost color. Air vents in the back and more than 1 cupholder.
