2001 Ford Escort ZX2 2dr Coupe (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Review
I bought this car because it was all I could afford at the time. After seven years I have only replaced the tires, a lightbulb and one door hinge (fixed free of charge). Even the brakes are still good. Unbelievably dependable. Bought it in California, drove to the desert the first week. The engine is loud above 75 mph but the mileage is unbelievable at 34 MPG. This car drove to Washington state and crossed the country, no problems. Around town it handles like a sports car with great pickup and excellent turning radius. Engine really cranks up to 5000 rpm and gets to 60 in no time. 5 speed standard transmission is very dependable and the clutch is still tight at 60,000 plus miles.
Favorite Features
Dependability, pickup, great AC, transmission, fuel econonomy is incredible. I commute about 20 miles a day and fill up once every two and a half weeks. Fuel economy and dependability are the best features of this car. The stereo is pretty good overall.
Suggested Improvements
Although it would affect the fuel economy, sound proofing; this car is loud. Also, the tires are an odd size and quite expensive. The stock Goodyears do not help the noise either. Better tires helped reduce the noise. The 6 CD changer is in the trunk and is a bit inconvenient to load.
