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

Review

I actually purchased the automatic deluxe model and wish I had the manual transmission. This car is extremely under powered. Both window seals leak air when driving at highway speeds. The engine vibrates severely at stoplights due to faulty engine mounts (Per Ford Service Techs) The body style is great, good handling, dependable, but - lacks horsepower, expect HUGE depreciation loss! I Tried trading in my 2002 ZX2 for something better but found out that it had depreciated 60% in 4 months. Most dealers only offer $7,000 tops on trade.

Best Features

Light Weight, Sport Exterior, good suspension.

Worst Features

Suggest that Ford offers a high performance premium package with Turbo charger, larger spoiler, premium sound, leather, nicer wheels, etc. to compete with other manufacturer sport compacts. Get rid of that clumsey egg shaped center dash - looks real cheap!
