Awesome — I love the noise it makes. the acceleration in second and third is amazing. Need to do a lot of work on it though but that is being taken care of soon. I havent really driven it properly yet so not a lot more i can say.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: sound and acceleration

Cons: NONE!!

Wicked Car! — Best car I ever had or ever will have! You gotta get behind the wheel of one of these. Great on gas and great on acceleration. Fun to drive and sounded better than any other car on the road. Didn't need ghetto pipes to sound tough.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun to drive.

Cons: I flipped it.

Good Gas Mileage And Plenty Of Space For The Driver Help Lift My Opinion Of This Car. — Leaves some to be desired in performance, but it's obviously not built for it anyway. Since it's a 4-cylinder, it gets good mileage, about 25/30mpg. It hasn't needed any major repairs, and should keep going for a while yet with ~117K miles.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Affordable

Cons: Hard to work on yourself since engine components are in weird places.

Reliable And Handles Fine In The Now With Front Wheel Drive — It seats four adults comfortably and makes a statement for a reliable car. In appearance i believe the 1998 ford escort blends in admirably yet holds a distinctive look in appearance that slightly stands out better than the other four door sedans in its class. It has an about average mile per gallon for it's year and make starting around 28 to 30 miles per gallon.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: nice reliable family car

Cons: no complaints

Good To Start With... — It really picks up speed fast when u step on d accelerator. Braking is great and it handles well. Not had any problem with it in terms of its build. Looks great on the eyes, inside and outside. Fuel economy is great for a 2.0 litres and maintenance is okay, higher than average tho. It sure is fun to drive.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Performance

Cons: The engine is a bit noisy tho smooth.

Ford Escort 1998 — It has a cool Jagermeister sticker on it! When its not cold it runs beautifully! It has half leather bucket style seats which are comfy. The car is a really nice drive at the top end of its performance! Nice engine!

Pros: Nice drive when it decides to work, lol!

Cons: The central locking on Ford Escorts is crap and rarely works if at all!

'98 Zx2 Escort — Well-built car, ballsy 4 cylinder engine, but 5 spd trans. revs out too quickly. No leaks/ticks or knocks. Could use better gearing to improve high revs/fuel economy. Car is 0ver 10 years old, and only has one rust spot on it's original paint.

Pros: Fun to drive, relatively cheap on fuel/maintenance.

Cons: Transmission gearing (manual), seats are uncomfortable on long drives.

Great All Around — This car has good performance, REALLY good gas mileage, is comfortable (for a compact coup) and is fun to drive. It looks sleek and fun, it is cheap to own, but cost to purchase and cost of gas. It's zippy and can do 0 to 60 in 6.5 seconds. For in I4, it's a great little car. I miss mine. :(

Pros: Fuel Efficient, fun to drive, zippy, nice looking.

Cons: I don't have mine anymore. :(
