Started out nice.

2000 Ford Escort ZX2 2dr Coupe


Have only put 29,000 on it in the 4 years I've owned. Total mileage at this point is 50,000. In the past 4 years the only repairs were to BOTH tie rod ends. Also have a tensioning belt that isn't centered. Then my engine starting chirping/squeaking when idling. Turns out I need my timing belt and all components replaced. They also found my head gasket was leaking. $1,400 estimate to repair. Seems a bit ridiculous on a car with so few miles that was babied.

Best Features

Cute and sporty, cheap, gas mileage is awesome.

Worst Features

Engine could use a bit more power- entrance ramps with the air conditioning are nearly impossible. Am also seeing a lot of people replacing tie rod ends.
