2002 Ford Escort ZX2 Deluxe 2dr Coupe (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


I actually purchased the automatic
deluxe model and wish I had the manual
transmission. This car is extremely
under powered.

Both window seals leak air when driving
at highway speeds. The engine vibrates
severely at stoplights due to faulty
engine mounts (Per Ford Service Techs)

The body style is great, good handling,
dependable, but - lacks horsepower,
expect HUGE depreciation loss!

I Tried trading in my 2002 ZX2 for
something better but found out that it
had depreciated 60% in 4 months. Most
dealers only offer $7,000 tops on trade.

Best Features

Light Weight, Sport Exterior, good suspension.

Worst Features

Suggest that Ford offers a high performance premium package with Turbo charger, larger spoiler, premium sound, leather, nicer wheels, etc. to compete with other manufacturer sport compacts. Get rid of that clumsey egg shaped center dash - looks real cheap!
