A real escort!

ReviewThis is the only car that sold itself
to me! The salesman didn't have to do
anything. After the air conditioner was
fixed in only 1 year, the next big
problem was the air flow meter did not
read right, causing the the engine go
lean and sputter once the engine warmed
up-fixed under the warranty just before
it expired. At about '99 the tiny
coolant lines that run to the air
intake (these set idle speed fast when
coolant is cold)busted and my coolant
boiled out (see improvement
It may wear on you cruising the
interstate by the hour, the suspension
is a bit stiff. But for anything
shorter it rides just fine and is good
at handling curves.
Best FeaturesIt is just plain fun to drive. I could put bikes and chairs in back that probably would not fit in the later ZX2.
Worst FeaturesThe oil filter should not be located directly over the exhaust pipe. The car always smokes after the oil filter is changed. Too many things are accessible only from underneath the car. Tire size 185/60R15 was hard to find.
