1998 Ford Escort ZX2 Hot 2dr Coupe


Review

I purchased my ZX2 used about a year
and a half ago. With the exception of
some trouble getting it started on
some brutally cold winter days (which
was remedied by a coolant flush which
was probably due anyway) this car has
been very reliable! I even drove it
cross-country from NY to AZ and was
pleased with the my car's
performance. My only complaint-
sometimes it gets a little shakey at
the higher speeds, but much better
than my last escort! Overall rating-
an attractive, reliable car that was
affordable for a college student even
with lots of options.


Best Features

I like my 6 cd changer. At first I didn't like that it was in the trunk, but since no one sees it I don't have to worry about it being stolen. Also, the moonroof and keyless entry are great features.


Worst Features

Ford needs to put a little more thought into the interior fabric selection because mine is a little tacky! Still a little shakey at higher speeds, but much better than my last escort.

1998 Ford Escort ZX2 Hot 2dr Coupe


Review

I've had my car for a few months, and i
really don't have anything bad to say
about it. It has a lot more power than
I thought it would have and its
performance is exellent.


Best Features

cd changer, sporty exterior, performance, gas milage


Worst Features

cd changer needs to be up front instead of in the trunk. And there should be a way to get in your trunk if you loose your keys.

Review

Well, I just purchased a 1998 zx2 "hot"
from a private party. The car had
62,500miles when i bought it. The car
has every option available except abs
because when the seller ordered the car
abs wasn't an option then. I have all
the service and maintanence records for
the car since new. That in itself is
amazing. Its a perfect car for me
because the upgraded seats hug my back
althought I don't recommend it to large
frame people. All in all I am very
satisfied with my car and never thought
I would say that about a ford.


Best Features

Performance, moonroof,cd changer


Worst Features

Inside truck release, interior could use a tad bit of remodeling
