1999 Ford Escort SE 4dr Sedan


I bought the car with 30,000 miles on
it and it runs very well. Does not
leak anything and drivers very tight
with ice cold AC that does not drain
power from the engine. Pretty good
passing power for a 4 cylinder with an
automatic. Comfortable to drive and
easy to get in and out of.

Best Features

I like the anti-lock breaks, they work great. The stereo cranks up nice and loud. I like the keyless entry and the factory alarm system.

Worst Features

My ignition switch went bad at 35,900 miles but the dealer replaced for free under factory warranty even though I was the second owner. Seems to idle a little rough in winter until engine warms up. There is a rattle in the dash every once in a while; sounds like loose plastic.
