2001 Ford Escort ZX2 2dr Coupe (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Review
It's my first car. Bought used with 40k miles. Gets amazing gas mileage and it's pretty fun to drive. Back seat is a bit roomy for a car of its size. It gets up and goes for a car with a 130hp engine. Has a lot of low end torque, but when it gets in 2nd and 3rd gear it slows down a lot. Then up again in 4th. Older people might not like how low this car is (makes it hard to get in and out of). The ZX2 sits at least a foot lower than a Civic. Aftermarket parts are limited, but there are some. All in all if you're looking for a smaller car with great gas mileage and a little more "get up and go" then this is the car for you.
Favorite Features
Turning radius. Large rear window. Auto mirrors. Gas mileage. Hold roads very well at higher speeds. Very easy to fit in a parking space. Hard to reach front seat belts when sitting in car.
Suggested Improvements
Come stock with bigger rims. More pep in 2nd and 3rd gear. Make a super sport version with a bigger engine and more performance mods.
