1999 Ford Escort ZX2 Cool 2dr Coupe


I have owned my ZX2 since 1999. At that time it had a lot of horsepower and equipment for a reasonable price. It has been a good investment. At six years, the car has is still running with its original factory-installed battery. I replaced the tires (because I did not bother to rotate the original ones properly), but have I not invested a dime in repairs. It has been very reliable car. Too bad Ford decided to discontinue it, Escorts in general seem to be reliable cars. I am glad I bought the car and when ready to purchase another car, I will consider another Ford car.

Best Features

Decent horsepower and fuel economy. The stereo system is decent.

Worst Features

The front seats should slide out of the way to allow passengers to gain access to the back seat. The manual transmission is notchy.
