1998 Ford Escort ZX2 Hot 2dr Coupe


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.
