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


Review

My very first car was an EXP, and my father bought a five speed so that I would learn to drive one. I LOVED that car, and my ZX2 reminds me of it in the way it drives. It's a fun car. It's very well made, and although I said when we were shopping that I didn't want a 2 door, and I didn't want a 4 cylinder, I didn't even want a small car...But you know? I am happy with my little car, and I am upset that Ford has discontinued them.


Best Features

5 speed transmission is quick, the car has style and power. (For a 4 cylinder.)


Worst Features

Don't stop making them, They are so much more sporty and stylish than the Focus. I don't want to have to buy a Cavalier!

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


Review

My experience with this car has been great, my previous car was a 91' escort, and just as that it has showed great potential. I've had no problems so far, i personally find it a very comfortable car(no i've never had to ride in the backseat of it, haha), it is great with gas, and i think will last a long time. Not to forget... it was a great price, for being 17 trying to buy a new car, i think this was perfect.


Best Features

standard cd player, roomy trunk, folding back seats.


Worst Features

different name, it gets looked down on just because it's an escort.

Review

I have had my zx2 for over a year and have yet to have any mechanical problems. With a few minor engine upgrades it can kill honda's and acura's. It gets great gas milage, and handles very well. I would recommend this car to anyone looking to have a fun, fast car. It is also a safe car, believe me i know....


Best Features

I like the compactness, and get up and go, also the handling


Worst Features

put a better stock sound system in it

Review

This is my 4th escort. I had ground effects, tinted windows and chrome rims put on this one. I get out of it and people ask me if that is my son's car! I love it. They all ask the same question, what is that? When I say an escort, they all say NO WAY!!! Its as if I wait on people to ask me the same questions, it happens with such frequency. I love this one more than I have loved my last three. And I thought I loved them, I put over a hundred thousand miles on each of my escorts. Reliable and thats why I keep coming back.


Best Features

The gas mileage is terrific. I also changed out the shifter to a chrome one, It just makes it more fun to drive.


Worst Features

UUUGH, please stop skimping on the front seats. I had to buy expensive seat covers from J.C. Whitney with lumbar supports so I could tolerate the seats. Remember, I am not a teen ager!
