se sport wagon vs ztw ?

I am looking to buy either vehicle (used)....any points...tips that I should know before hitting the dealerships? I would rather have some knowledge than go in cold. For instance better years, engines, options packages etc. Basically I am looking for opinions and first hand experinces.
thanks! !!!

2002 ZTW is what I have. No problems to report after 52K. I like the Street Edition exterior found on the 01's. Package wise, the ZTW did not come with a ground effects package or rear spoiler like the Street Edition. Streed Editions also came with a machined rim. Suspensions are the same. You could get a ZTW with AdvanceTrac that comes with 4whl disc brakes (like mine:). This was not available on Street Edition's. Mine has leather as well. The Street Edition has a better looking guage panel (red needles). Either way, get a manual!

my 2003 ztw has had no problems as well ( except for someone running into it, but that got fixed). I have done rims suspension and a few engine mods, I've been very happy with mine. It has 34k miles ( it would have more if it weren't for the accident)...I really wanted rear discs like HRW, but I didn't want the advance trac and ABS.. But as above, get the 5 speed if you want , its very hard to find, but well worth it ( I ordered mine new and waited 6 weeks)...Any questions just ask..

most wagons have the Zetec ( 2000-2004) , while some fleet cars have the SPI. try to stick with the Zetec if possible cause that is where the vast majority of parts are.

also, in 2003-04 the 2.3 Duratec was available, not sure that new a car is in the price range but if ya can swing it it has alot more power than the Zetec

the SE's have most options allready ( pw, pl, cruise, air, cd) but the ZTW also offered leather, sunroof, sport package ( fogs, 16" rims, Tach ) so that is the basic difference between the 2

have fun looking

btw, if it was available when i bought mine ( 2001) i woulda got a ZTW with leather, sunroof, sport pkg., and the advance trac......but like i said, wasn't available when i got mine.......and yeah the 2.3 Duratec too


l8r, John
