Best car I've owned to date.
By F Bean on
2001 Ford Escort ZX2 2dr Coupe (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
I bought this car new at the advice of my brother, who is a Ford mechanic. He said they had yet to have one come in for any warranty work. True to his word, I've owned this car for 5 years, drive the heck out of it, wrecked it twice, and it still is there for me every time, knock on wood. I've never had to have it jumped or had it fail to start. I've had my oil changed every 3-4 thousand miles and it looks like honey. Good girl car, as it is dependable and looks good too!
The moonroof has always been my favorite feature and remains so. I worried at first that the motor might go out in the power moonroof, but even after thousands of openings and closings, it works perfectly.
They don't make this model anymore. I can't think of any realistic improvements needed.
