I also own a '98 escort zx2. Damn fine car if you ask me.. haven't had a
problem with it whatsoever. Mine also seems to be a bit noisy on the
highways, I thought it was road noise from my worn back tires, got those
replaced but it only helped a bit. It's still pretty loud when you are
going above 100 km/h, but I don't find it that bad.
Yes they are loud cars, annoyingly so. I carpeted over the carpet in
rear trunk, very little difference. There is no insulation beneath
the very thin carpet inside vehicle and no insulation between the
interior and firewall.
