1998 Ford Escort ZX2 2.0 liter DOHC from North America
The best American built economy car on the road
Carpet stains easily.
Tie-rod ends have been replaced twice.
This car is one of the best cars you can buy for the money. I have had no problems out of the car, and have almost 150000 miles on it.
I have taken very good care of the car. I have had no problems with the motor, transmission, or anything else in the car. My only expense has been a clutch that was replaced for the first time at 105k miles.
If people would just take of the car and do everything the service guide says in the owners manual, then the car will last for a very long time. And I get about 30mpg!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
