1998 Ford Escort ZX2 Cool 2dr Coupe


I've driven this car for the past 11 years and have had very few problems with it.
It has enough power to be fun to drive, and to get you around slow trucks when you need to, while still getting good gas mileage.

The best thing about it, though, is the amazing amount of cargo space for an economy coupe.
Between the surprisingly roomy trunk, and the fold-down seats, you can actually haul quite a lot of stuff.
I am regularly surprised at how much I can stuff into such a small car.

On top of that, it's one of the best-looking cars in its class, (IMHO), it turns on a dime, and it fits in almost any parking space. The only thing it doesn't do well is snow. But then, what little car does?

Best Features

Big trunk and large opening to the trunk (for its class). Tight turning radius. Cool-looking headlights.

Worst Features

Gear shift can be a bit persnickety. Also, the electrical outlet shuts off when you turn off the car, which can be annoying at times.
