1999 Ford Escort ZX2 Hot 2dr Coupe

Review

If given the choice between this and a Focus or Honda again I would still choose the Zx2. The car is very fun to drive, work on, it's very quick and outruns most cars on the road including some V8s yet still if babied I can get 37 miles the gallon and carry a lot of cargo. It's always been reliable and multi-functional. I went from an SUV to this and will never go back. Truly can not get a car this fast, this practical for this amount of money. Quite possibly one of Ford's best cars. If this was in Europe or the UK the raving would never cease.

Favorite Features

Acceleration 0 to 60 in about 7 seconds, Gas mileage never averaged lower than 28mpg including city driving sometimes get 37 mpg in summer, versatility, you can work on it to improve performance easily and finally all this for the low price.

Suggested Improvements

More aggressive styling. Sloping hatchback to fit more cargo. A performance option providing supercharging or turbocharging or simply as the British convert the engine to 220hp naturally aspirated.
