1998 Ford Escort SE 4dr Sedan


One of Ford's best for basic trasportation.
Purch from original owner with 111k mi after sitting in yard for 2yr. Have driven it 65k miles since. Never left me stranded, only normal maint. items; i.e. timing belt, brakes, tires, muffler. New England winters & excessive road salt have taken a toll on the body.
Engine still runs strong and uses less that 1qt. of oil per 2k miles.

Best Features

Shifts well. Good gas mileage. Great for basic transport.

Worst Features

more sound dampening. If body was in good shape I would Dynamat the whole interior and maybe a Corbeau driver seat. Stock seats are less than adequate for my 6'2" frame and a 38 mile commute.
