A good little car
By Axel on
2000 Ford Escort ZX2 2dr Coupe
This car is a very reliable little
car. It is not functional as a family
car or for long trips, but they can be
done. It is an excellent get around
town car and short trip car. It does
get somewhat uncomfortable for trips 2
hours or more. The car never had a
problem starting, it is a little
sluggish in sub-zero temps (typical of
4-cyl.). The gas mileage is pretty
good. The car is an excellent,
reliable get around vehicle.
Reliability is excellent. It does
fairly well for gas mileage. It is a
very practicle car.
Get rid of the factory Goodyear RSA
tires. They only have good traction on
dry pavement. Ford also needs to
design vehicles for taller people, the
seats could slide back a little further.
