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


Review

The ZX2 is a great car! I
recently got an '03 ZX2 for my 16th
birthday and i love it! It's great on
gas mileage, very easy to drive, and an
overall fun car!


Best Features

Sporty exterior body, good gas mileage, great car to put sunroof in!


Worst Features

Can't think of one.

Review

I like my ZX2! Styling being
subjective inside and out and everyone
will have their own opinion on it. I
think the ZX2 is just better than the
current Focus because it is MUCH
quicker and that is fact! The ZX2
Escort to me is basically a car that
has lived on for a decade ignoring the
recent "taller is better" philosophy
and is now a reliable, quick 90's car
for sale in 2003.


Best Features

Zetec Engine makes this car more "fast and furious" than the import likes of Civic and Lancer. Perfect Moonroof Placement!


Worst Features

Ford should change to blacked-out mufflers so no rust on the exhaust will show from underneath the rear bumper. Minor change, but would be nice.

Review

I have to disagree with Edmund's
opinion that the Focus is a better car.
I couldn't wait to get my car back when
I had to rent a Focus for a day because
my ZX2 was in the shop. It was so
boring to drive and styling of the
Focus just doesn't compare to that of
my car. You wonder "why the ZX2 has
lasted this long" ? Because it's
replacement would be the UGLY EGG that
they call the Focus ZX3! The only
Focus that may be better than the ZX2
is the SVT Focus (which costs a
considerabe amount more). The only
thing the ZX2 is lacking is an SVT
option. It is a GREAT car. Ford has
continued production of this car for
good reason.


Best Features

My favorite feature would have to be exterior styling. Interior styling is also nice.


Worst Features

More power would be great! I wish i could see an SVT ZX2. But i don't see that happening.

Review

I hate this car and can't wait to
trade it in for something else. I have
had it for 3 months now and thought
that it would grow on me. It doesn't.
I get passed on the freeways all of
the time cause it has no power. For
some reason the exhaust goes into the
car when you turn on the aircon. What
is with that? It looks like a sporty
little zippy car but it is not. I am
going today to trade it in for
something else. I hate this car.


Best Features

i can't think of one


Worst Features

possibly the exhaust going into the car from the air vents. Might be a noval idea!
