2000 Ford Escort 4dr Sedan


Review

I bought my 2000 Ford Escort SE sedan on 02/15/02 and havn't had a major problem yet. This is a very good car to drive since it is one of the best Escort modles that rolled of the production line.Great acceleration on city streets,but going up hills can be a bit of a challeng since there is only 110 hores under it's hood.


Best Features

i really enjoy the Escort's body style from 97-2002 for the sedan.Standard 2.0, 4 cyl engine,with 110 hp. Rear folding seats.


Worst Features

More horsepower for that extra boost going uphill and merging on major highways. More leg room in the rear for back seat passengers.

2000 Ford Escort 4dr Sedan


Review

I really like this little car. It handles the tough winters up here in the Northeast. Starts everyday, handles the snow & ice good. Peppy little 4 cylinder, although I wish I had the standard. I am a 5 speed fanatic. I don't find the car uncomfortable at all. A lot of other smaller car will make my bum go to sleep after an hour or two, but not so with this one. My previous car was a 1997 Hyundai Accent, which was a great little car, but the escort has the upper hand over the accent.


Best Features

comfort, peppy engine, handling, ac is always ice cold


Worst Features

loses alot of power with ac on

2000 Ford Escort 4dr Sedan


Review

A ford escort is usually a car that people joke about but to tell you. I had good luck with mine. I had a 1997 escort wagon and currently own a 2000 sedan. There are real good cars. Im 6'2 and yeah its kinda tight but it dont stop me from driving it. I longest I spent driving it was about 15 hours. Its got a peppy 2.0 inline 4 cyl. But who needs all that power anyway. The fastest you can go is 65mph.


Best Features

Seats are like a LAZY-BOY Recliner. Radio picks up pretty good. (Not Bad Sound)


Worst Features

I just wish these cars come with cruise control. I know these cars have it but very few do. Love to see a little more power. Turn the A/C on and you will lose power.

2000 Ford Escort 4dr Sedan


Review

I rented this car after rolling my 2000 corolla. Not a bad car. I know the specs only show 114 HP, and 120 fp of torque. But that's LOW END TORQUE. This car gets running from the get go (because Ford believes in torque unlike most imports). The ride is fairly alright, interior is very basic. It's a basic car. If you can get a deal on one of these I would most likely recommend it.


Best Features

Low end torque:) I have had two imports (toyota and maza) for the past two years. Low end power is something I miss from domestic cars.


Worst Features

This is meant to be a cheapie car. No bells and whistles, just a point A-B, and does it not too badly. The interior however, has a fairly cheap looking design. Especially the inside door handles, could snap if you tried.
