1999 Ford Escort ZX2 Cool 2dr Coupe


I got my ZX2 3 years ago and have been
so thankful for it. No, it's not a
road demon, but it definately has
treated me well in the years that I've
driven it. It picks up well, and
handles relatively well considering
that it is an entry level car. I've
had no mechanical problems with it in
the three years that I've owned it. Be
ware that it doesn't handle the rain
very well, it slips and slides all
around the road in water. High speeds
are also a bit scary. Dispit the fact
that the car has the engine capability
to get up and go, the car's design
limits it's stability on the highway to
about 85 mph.

Best Features

Designed to be as economically efficient as possible! 87 octane only, and a wet sponge to clean the interior! Good sound system and fun drive.

Worst Features

The suspension could be a bit better. The car could handle better at higher speeds. The factory tires are such a rare size that I had to buy 4 new bigger tires that fit.
