1998 Ford Escort SE 4dr Sedan


Bought this car used as a replacement for a Nissan Sentra. Other than being a little noisy, it's been a great car. It now has 110K on the odometer and still going strong. We've had to replace motor mounts and the drive axles in the past few months but at 100K those are wear items anyway. This car has been flawless otherwise. Car has never had to go in for service except for routine maintenance items. For those who are shopping, stay away from the dual cam engine unless you just gotta have the power. Routine maintenance for the twin cammer is far more expensive than the single cammer, or so I've read.

Best Features

Interior space is excellent for a small car, good trunk space too.

Worst Features

Driving position a little too low for short drivers. Needs a aftermarket height adjuster for the seat but can't find one. Odd since there are so many tuner parts for the ZX2.
