1999 Ford Escort ZX2 Hot 2dr Coupe


Review

I have put 194,000 miles on so far and have had no maintenance issues thus far. Change the oil every 3,500, that's it. Am still averaging 35.4 MPG. This has been a great can and expect to get 300,000 miles out of it easy.

1999 Ford Escort ZX2 Hot 2dr Coupe


Review

I have had such a bad time with this car. I have put two transmissions in it and it had left me stranded numerous times.


Best Features

The body style and color...that's about it.


Worst Features

They should just stop making it altogether.

1999 Ford Escort LX 4dr Sedan


Review

This car was purchased new and we now have 117k miles on it and have never done anything to it except the 100k mile tune up. It has been well worth the purchase price and if Ford still made them we would buy another one.


Best Features

With the 5 speed tranny we get 35mpg. Love the keyless entry, great design for the year.


Worst Features

Less hassle to replace the factory radio which is built in with the heater control panel.

1999 Ford Escort ZX2 Cool 2dr Coupe


Review

This car seemed to work alright up until about 65,000 miles...then I found myself in and out of the dealership/repair shops every few months. I would not buy a Ford again, lesson learned.


Best Features

It is a cute car. If I was not always repairing it, it would have been a better car.


Worst Features

Like it to have been more reliable overall.

1999 Ford Escort LX 4dr Sedan


Review

I've had this car for seven years and have only had to replace brakes and tires and a wiper blade now and then. It's a great car for girls because all of the fluid caps are have labels and the rear seats fold down so you can fit all of your shopping items in the car.


Best Features

Fold down rear seats, gas mileage, easy to drive.


Worst Features

More leg room in the rear seat and more head room.
