Not so good for intense driving
By kevin on


2001 Ford Escort ZX2 2dr Coupe (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


I have to drive a lot between places, and this car I bought in 06 with 70,000 miles for only $4,000. The first two years were good, up until 110,000 miles. Transmission needs work now, things keep braking on this car (leaks) unfortunately at this point, the upkeep is getting high I might as well buy a car. A/C blows weak, and my compressor won't make cold air now. I don't know how anyone gets 30 MPG on this. I usually get 350 Miles on a tank, and the tank is 13 gallons, so its 26 MPG for me. Good first car, rides a bit low for me, and dents easily.

Best Features

It's good for passing other cars, good handling.

Worst Features

Better MPG, ride higher, and better suspension.
