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 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.




Don't expect over 100k miles

I bought this car with 700 miles on it and it performed very well with no problems until 115K miles the engine blew. I changed the oil every 3-4K miles, so I thought it would last. It had this most annoying vibration after about 50K miles and I was told it was the motor mounts. Then I started working 60 miles away and it performed fine, except for the vibrating. I was sitting in traffic for about 30 minutes, no over heating, no warning and it stalled and that was it, there's a hole in the engine. Other than poor life span, I thought it was a great car. The only thing changed was an alternator. A parts house told me these engines are notorious for blowing unexpectedly.




Wow! what a beast i

I brought this car basically because I was excited in buying my first car. Anyways since then the car has been like a trusty companion. Every time I think it's gonna give out on me it just keeps kicking. Right now I'm in the 20's as far as mileage and she runs like when i first brought her. Great A to B car.
