She runs like a champ, no matter what
By Maleficus on


1999 Ford Escort ZX2 Cool 2dr Coupe


I purchased my used ZX2 about 2 years ago, with 58,000 miles on the clock. Since then, she's only let me down once, and that was because I hadn't performed a regular maintenance item. The timing belt slipped so it wouldn't run, took it to a shop who didn't know what they were doing and they told me my cold air intake and header were why she wouldn't idle (at ALL). Well, they were wrong, the timing was still off. For a year, she's been running with bad timing and she runs like a champ, well, to a certain degree. As soon as I fix the timing (myself!), I'm positive she'll be back to her old zippy, fun self. Please, please buy one of these cars, you won't regret it.

Best Features

First and foremost, it's a Ford. She's zippy and fun to drive, plus just about bullet-proof.

Worst Features

Automatic transmission is very weak.
