2003 Ford Escort ZX2 Deluxe 2dr Coupe (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
My 1999 ZX2 jerks when going slow such
as a slow take off or stop n go on the
frwy. Service Mgr told me thats normal.
Feels like it wants to stall. Taken it
in 7 times. No leg room in back seat
and if you'te tall your head hits the
top of the car. Air conditioner stopped
working at 35,000. Good on gas,
reliable. Great take off. The jerking
has turned me off. Can feel like I'm
learning to drive a stick and can't
balance the gas and clutch. Other than
that - it's okay.
Sporty without the cost of being sporty
(including insurance). Reliable, great
on gas. Great take off.
Can't believe they sell a car knowing
it jerks (or is Serv Mgr full of it
because they don't want to fix the
transmission?) More head room in the
back for passengers. Design cup holders
to hold large large cups from BK,
McD's, etc so they don't tilt and spill.
