Fun to Drive Expensive to fix.
By Erinf on


1998 Ford Escort ZX2 Hot 2dr Coupe


I bought this car back in 2000, off a
lease. Got the extended warranty. Until
60k the car was fine. I had one
transmission problem, which the
dealership fixed and gave me a rental
for a week. At around 60k things got
scarey. Repairs in the 2-3k range, all
over the place. It like the car had
been built to survive just past the
warranty then totally fall apart...
hondas and toyotas don't do this, why
do fords?

Best Features

Fun to drive, was a dream until 60k miles.

Worst Features

Lets try to make a car last longer that 60k miles.
