2002 Ford Escort ZX2 2dr Coupe (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I bought this car as a way for me to get back and forth from school. Shortly after, however, I moved out of town and, to my displeasure, found that this car is not a long drive type of car. In the city, it does alright, except the fact that it has a horrible vibration that I've been told can't be fixed. But as far as driving, it is good and saves me quite a bit on gas.


Best Features

The gas mileage on this car is fabulous.


Worst Features

The vibration in this car definantly needs to be addressed. I have had several things that have to be replaced or tightened, from what I can tell, vibrating loose.

2002 Ford Escort ZX2 2dr Coupe (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

It is a suprise to get decent power and good reliability for under $14,000. I had two transmissions put in within the first 20,000 miles but it was my fault the first time and the dealers fault the second time. My only complaint is it is rough shifting but it could be the result of the multiple transmissions.


Best Features

The engine is easy to upgrade and it is a rather attractive design


Worst Features

Better transmission, add read disc brakes

2002 Ford Escort ZX2 2dr Coupe (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Very nice car for the price. The 2.0 Zetec is a great engine design that comes standard on the ZX2 but must be bought as an option on the Focus line. Not only does it have better aerodynamics but its also lighter than the Focus. Driver and Passenger seating comfortable even on non stop (except gas and food) trip from Austin to Philly with my brother.


Best Features

Engine responds very well to mods, easy to remove Ford's intentional inhibitors. Good power at all RPM's.


Worst Features

The car deffinatly needs a better transmission, both the 5spd and the auto are weak. If you get an auto, be sure to get a tranny cooler.
