2000 Ford Escort ZX2 2dr Coupe


Review

I love this car - the only thing better
would be if it was a manual
transmission. But for an automatic, it
puts out a decent amount of power and
is very fun to drive!


Best Features

Easily able to switch out the stock stereo to fit any after-market stereo; plenty of room in the trunk for my subs and other luggage


Worst Features

Replace all factory speakers as soon as possible; replace the stock stereo system; use at least a 10" subwoofer to get desired output

2000 Ford Escort ZX2 2dr Coupe


Review

This Escort has been typical of the
three Escorts we have owned previously.
Well built, short on options, reliable,
and hard on the back when sitting over
an hour. Nagging problem with engine
mounts (accelerator slaps foot and
clunks on starts and stops and bad tie
rods).


Best Features

Power everything including moon roof Antenna in a logical place unlike Focus Just plain fun to drive.


Worst Features

More storage, especially for sunglasses. More adjustments to seats including lumbar support. Amber turn signals in mirrors, and tail lights. High mount brake light.

2000 Ford Escort ZX2 2dr Coupe


Review

Bought this car 4 years ago back in
2000. I have enjoyed having this car
around. It is a fun car to drive back
and forth to work. I have had no
problems with the car. It has been a
very reliable car. I would buy another
one if given the chance. Out of all the
compact coupes I would say the ZX2 is a
great coupe. I spend most of my time
around cars, so yes I know what I'm
talking about.


Best Features

My favorite features on the car is the leather seats which are very comfortable and having everything power.


Worst Features

I still don't know about the intergarated control pod setup. It makes it hard to install a stero and have it blend with the interior.

Review

I bought my 2000 Ford zx2 brand new in
2000 with 34 miles on it. In the last
3 and a half years I have put 70,000
miles on it. The only major problem I
have had is the automatic
transmission. The transmission is not
very good. I have had to have it
flushed twice already. The thing
shifts hard all the time out of first
even when the fluid is full. The only
other problem I have had is to replace
the left front tie-rod. Otherwise the
car has been pretty good. It protected
me in a nice 45mph accident when a
soccer mom pulled out in front of me in
her mini van. 27mpg on average.


Best Features

Power sunroof, power mirrors, leather seats. Fun to drive.


Worst Features

Auto transmission needs a lot of work. Tie rods seem to be weak on these. Safety features work, I had to try them.

Review

I have had no mechanical problems with
my car. I have had to do no more than
oil changes, car washes, and fluid
checks. I have had to replace my
tires once...and they were more
expensive than I had figured.
Relatively hard to find too. Overall,
great car.


Best Features

Great gas mileage, cheap tank to fill. Reliable, starts right up in all weather. Sturdy handling.


Worst Features

Standard tilt steering. Standard CD player. Standard keyless entry.
