1999 Ford Escort ZX2 Hot 2dr Coupe

Review

Mine has 58,500 miles. Been hearing some squeaks. Strange vibration near the driver's side front when I turn the wheel all the way to the left. Transmission has a "hop" in it when starting from stand-still off the line. Had a '92 Escort LX and at 57K it did the same thing. MAINTAIN YOUR TRANSMISSION! Also, rotate tires & maintenance alignment regularly or it will PULL SHARP to one side because it is so light. Hydroplanes when wet out. Put weight in trunk to prevent this during winter. Engine run better on premium grade fuels. Fuel injectors cause drag if you use cheap fuel over time. Other than those typical high-mileage issues -- it's fast, fuel-economical, and stylish.

Favorite Features

Built with a Japanese engine for fast speed & has sportscar styling. Sunroof & 6-disc CD changer a plus! LOW MAINTENANCE. Mine has a personality ALL its own. Just call it 'CHRISTINE'... LOL.

Suggested Improvements

Quieter engine. Engine is ornery & LOUD when it's cold out. Better transmission. Get out the electrical bugs. Sometimes I swear this car is possessed: radio shorts out on me at random & doesn't allow you to change station or doesn't allow you to switch back from CD to radio! WEIRD GLITCHES.
