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


I bought this car in 2004 with 35,000 miles on it. I have put 65,000 miles on it over the last five years. Up until the 90,000 mile mark it was an extremely good car, with nothing other than regular maintanence. The last year it needed brakes (pads, rotors, and drums), tie-rods, and a solenoid, all between $400 and $500 each. I always get over 30 mpg, usually closer to 35. Ride and handling are acceptable for a small car. Not much interior room, but enough for my 5'2" body. It has had intermittant problems shifting from park to drive when first started. Likes to stay in park or neutral. Have to bump shifter into neurtal, than back into drive for it to get into gear.

Best Features

Remote entry, fold-down rear seat, power mirrors.

Worst Features

Move/enlarge cup holders. Can't put car into park if a large cup is in the holder. Cups also hit climate control. Power seats would be nice.
