2000 Ford Escort Coupe ZX2 2dr Coupe


Review

During the time that I have had this car, I have had no problems what-so-ever. This is the best car out of all the cars that I have ever owned, it is so fun to drive because it is small and quick. Only because I am moving out of country am I going to be getting rid of it. Love the car, if you get the opportunity to buy one, do so. I feel that this is a great starter car, and a great commuter car.


Best Features

Handling. I have driven many higher end cars that don't have the responsiveness that the Escort has.


Worst Features

The complaint most heard is the back seat is too small. That is because it is a 2 door car. Other than that, I also wish that it had cruise control. Many do, but not mine.

Review

I bought this car off the lot (with 15 miles on it); it was fully loaded with options (power locks and windows, moon roof, 6 CD player). So far, it's been great to drive and very reliable, with only routine maintenance (tires, oil change, etc) needed.


Best Features

Interior organization works well or me. Air, heat and defrost system excellent. Really good sound system. With manual transmission great fun to drive.


Worst Features

Exterior finish shows every nick, ding and brush. Really disappointed with that. Light on the road in inclement conditions, despite front wheel drive.

Review

So I have only had this car for 6 months. Bought it as part of a voluntary repo from my credit union. It had 30,400 miles on it, and had 35,234 when the car became locked in second somehow and the gears fused together. To repair from the original dealer is $1,600; to replace is $3,200 plus labor. Seems rather costly since it is a manual. I have owned a Ford Taurus, Acura Legend, Honda Accord, and then this ZX2. My Honda cars were reliable and fun to drive. These Fords have been costly.


Best Features

Head lights are pretty cool. Turn signal and wiper switches are ergomonic. Very comfortable seats for a car in this price range.

Review

I have had my car for almost 3 years in June and i have had only one thing happen to it and that had something to do with the gear shifter and the warranty covered that. All around it is a great car for anyone. I have put almost 50,000 miles on it and it is still going, like it is new.


Best Features

6-disc CD changer,bucket seats and window design


Worst Features

Bigger speakers, easy access to back seat would be nice.

Review

I got my ZX2 used in February '04 so I don't have the years experience with it. I love how nicely it handles and the gas mileage is a real plus; stereo is awesome for a stock stereo. I only wish my ZX2 had power windows/door locks; the crank windows are a real problem sometimes and it's a real pain having to reach across to let people in my car. I also wish is didn't vibrate like one of those massage chairs when at idle.


Best Features

Stereo w/ 6 disc changer, handling, exterior style.


Worst Features

Back seat could be easier to access, power windows door locks standard, an engine that doesn't vibrate.
