I bought my 2000 Ford zx2 brand new in
2000 with 34 miles on it. In the last
3 and a half years I have put 70,000
miles on it. The only major problem I
have had is the automatic
transmission. The transmission is not
very good. I have had to have it
flushed twice already. The thing
shifts hard all the time out of first
even when the fluid is full. The only
other problem I have had is to replace
the left front tie-rod. Otherwise the
car has been pretty good. It protected
me in a nice 45mph accident when a
soccer mom pulled out in front of me in
her mini van. 27mpg on average.
Power sunroof, power mirrors, leather
seats. Fun to drive.
Auto transmission needs a lot of work.
Tie rods seem to be weak on these.
Safety features work, I had to try them.
