2003 Ford Escort Coupe ZX2 Premium 2dr Coupe (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Well the main reason why i dog this cra is because atfer driving mine for like 3 months it started breaking down i take it to get looked at and i find out that it has no motor mont then it took 3 months to get one because they claimed it was an international part. The other part i do not like is how things are so low you do not even have a arm rest you have a little hole and the stero is awful and when you put a after market one in they have to put a ugly black stero holder


Favorite Features

The gas mileage


Suggested Improvements

The whole car redisgn the car and make it looke good. Every car company has the inexpensive coupe just because its inexpensive does not mean you do not take as much pride and building as say the explorer. The car should come standard with ABS and a cd player.

Review

I love everything about my car...for the price, dependability, style and last but not least quality performance. My car gets app. 30 mpg and still has the power and handling of a sports car that makes it fun to drive.


Favorite Features

Sun Roof,Premium Sound w/ 6 disc,sleek body, and a very zippy 2.0 VCT motor to put you back in those bucket seats


Suggested Improvements

I would like to see a few more aftermarket upgrades, but those have also picked up lately

Review

I bought this car new in 1999, have over 100K on it now with only 2 repairs, A/c condedensor and a tie-rod. Last tank of returned 35MPG. No squeeks, no rattles Faster than the Focus SVT, in fact faster than almost anything in its class. You need to go with the something like the Tubo Subaru or the new SRT Neon to go quicker, of course you will spend thousands more.


Favorite Features

Reliability, ZERO recalls bulletproof in every respect


Suggested Improvements

6 speed manual to keep the engine revs down on the highway, I would bet this thing would do 40+mpg. Bigger side mirrors would help. More sound insulation would be good. and yes give me a convertible !
