2001 Ford Escort ZX2 2dr Coupe (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Great car have 215,000 miles, I'm a second owner 1st owner maintained very well. Only problems have been 2 alternators, clutch went out around 200,000, the high intensity headlights burned out sockets 2x each side. Might burn a 1/2 quart between oil changes, I get it changed every 5000. I drive it very hard and it like a timex and keeps on ticking.
I have the chip installed that gives 15% more horsepower and is a quick little car, engine very well built.
More back seat room, better charging system, mounting c.d. changer somewhere else besides next to rear speaker, when played at higher volumes it makes c.d. skip.
