Review of the 2001 Ford Escort

  • The Escort is officially eclipsed by the Focus. Don't let the small price advantage sway you.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Coupe body style, affordable price, standard Zetec engine.

  • Cons

    The Ford Focus ZX3 Hatchback is superior in nearly every aspect.

  • What's New for 2001

    Other than a couple of new exterior colors, the Escort ZX2 is unchanged for 2001. The high-performance S/R Package is no longer…

Ok (at times)

Vehicle: 2001 Ford Escort ZX2 2dr Coupe (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Awesome to drive! I like the zipping around feeling from the little car and the manual transmission is the only way to go! Bought the car about 2 years ago and it is not aging well...found numerous times we have had to put patch work on it. I will say I'm not sure about safety, it doesn't seem like it would hold up well in a collision but i don't know.




Great car!

Vehicle: 2001 Ford Escort ZX2 2dr Coupe (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Bought this car in 2010 with 68,000 miles,it now has 89,000. Only perpuse is to drive to and from work daily, 75 mile round trip. Gets awesome gas milage, rutinly between 32-37. it all depends on how you drive it. If you try to stay at 80mph, you will get horrable mileage. I stay at 2800rpm or about 72mph on the highway, to get the mileage list above (2500prm or 68mph to get 37mpg). this is NOT a preformance car and shouldn't be driven like one, if you are looking for the GOOD mileage, however it will and does surpass all other models in its catagory.




Good car
