Engine acceleration wonderful, turbo located near center on the right side of the engine, black interior and exterior.

Review

Bought the car new in '99, have 93k miles on it but still love it. The ZX2 is fun to drive, reliable with average maintenance. I've only had to replace the tires, timing belt and breaks (once). The engine is noisy and idles rough but the ZX2 has still been an incredible value. Ride on!


Favorite Features

Handling, pick-up, low-cost maintenance


Suggested Improvements

Engine noise and rough idle; Could have a smoother ride

Review

I have had a good experience with this car, but I have outgrown it. I have had very few repairs to make in the 3 years of ownership. Watch for rear brake caliper leaks. Finding replacement tires can be expensive as the tires are of an odd size. I am using a slightly taller tire and it works out fine. I also advise any owner to buy a K&N air filter for this car. It does make a difference. If I had the choice, i would get this car with a 5 speed.


Suggested Improvements

Make more storage space available.

Review

This is my second escort and I love it. I bought it used with especially low miles, and I haven't regretted it for a minute. Defiantly worth more then it's priced at.


Favorite Features

Comfortable seats, reliable engine, it handles great. A wonderful sporty look.


Suggested Improvements

The paint chips off way to easy.
