Review of the 2000 Ford Escort

  • The Escort is officially eclipsed by the Focus. Don't let the small price advantage sway you.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Economical to own, good reliability and safety, new optional S/R performance package for ZX2 Coupe.

  • Cons

    Lack of refinement, so-so interior ergonomics, 2000 Ford Focus is a better car.

  • What's New for 2000

    The 2000 Escort line has been simplified. The station wagon is discontinued, and there is now only one trim level for the sedan and coupe…

Vehicle: 2000 Ford Escort ZX2 2dr Coupe

Ive had this car for two and a half years now and regrettably looking to get rid of. As a student i dont have time to fix the massive oil/coolant leak and fix whatever is making it run lean. had about 140000 miles now and got it with 116000. Replaced clutch at about 130 both tie rods, timing belt, turn signal switch and regular maintenance. Great when it's working, but here always seems to be a problem. I will admit i did drive it pretty hard delivering pizzas.

Vehicle: 2000 Ford Escort 4dr Sedan

Got this car for free from a buddy that left for the army, 157000 miles, getting about 33.5 mpg interstate, 28 in town. Runs great, looks good. Nice gift.

Vehicle: 2000 Ford Escort ZX2 2dr Coupe

Bought it in 2005 with 25K miles. 5 years laters at 85K miles I had the transmission rebuilt, and replaced clutch while I was at it. Now the ignition key lock broke and I can't get the key out! oh well, no one steals Fords anyways. Rubber fell off gas, brake and clutch, plastic off both seats levers, trunk lock sticks in low temperatures but those don't bother me. But that is it, I've had no engine trouble so far, first battery lasted 9 years!

If you're not concerned with style, get the Escort. $2000 cash back. Good luck....

2000 Ford Escort ZX2...after changing the factory radio with a Sony Xplod CD Radio (which works), now the airbag light is flashing. Checked for loose wiring or connections, no luck. Any ideas? I ha...
