1999 Ford Escort ZX2 Hot 2dr Coupe

Review

I have to admit that my ZX2 has been a good car. Bought it new in 1999. Safe and solid (i hit a tree and walked away). So Ford builds tough thats for sure! However, it seems no one tells you that around 140,000 km's that your automatic transmission will blow up. Oh heres the stinger - $3000 to fix! I had to take out a loan to fix it. I talked to the dealer and they laughed and said they knew this would happen when the sold it to me.

Favorite Features

Other than the the cheap transmission, this car is amazing. Never had to turn a wrench on it till 140,000 km. Safe in accidents! And has a nice interior, very comfy. And even though its a 4 cylinder it's quick.

Suggested Improvements

Build a transmission that won't fall to pieces on a whim. And maybe make some replacement parts; they found only 4 available tranmissions in North America! Plus no resale value, but hey that's cars for you.
