Review

Bought the car new in '99, have 93k
miles on it but still love it. The ZX2
is fun to drive, reliable with average
maintenance. I've only had to replace
the tires, timing belt and breaks
(once). The engine is noisy and idles
rough but the ZX2 has still been an
incredible value. Ride on!


Best Features

Handling, pick-up, low-cost maintenance


Worst Features

Engine noise and rough idle; Could have a smoother ride
