2001 Ford Escort ZX2 2dr Coupe (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
I bought this ZX2 in December of 2000
and the vehicle has been excellent and
reliable transportation since I have had
it. It has only been back to the dealer
one time and that was for the hood not
opening properly. Other than that all I
have done has been change the oil,
tranny fluid and gas and go. For a
small car the ZX2 has plenty of pep and
gets excellent gas mileage.
The only negative to this vehicle is
when I was looking into trading it had
depreciated more than I would have
I would recommend the ZX2 to anyone
looking for a small car that gets
excellent gas mileage.
Fun to drive and excellent gas mileage.
Has great low end torque, but a little
weak in 2nd and 3rd gears.
