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


Bought brand new in 2001. Great value, decent gas mileage, but you get what you pay for. Several issues with this car. First off, there is a terrible vibration at idle, which from what I have found is a problem that cannot be fixed. Due to this, there are cracks in the dash and even the bumper, which will need replacing soon now. At around 50,000 miles the blower went out, around 80,000 the cruise control went. Have also been getting an intermittent service engine soon light. Have changed oil and rotated tires every 5000 miles. The car only has 3 cup holders, two of which are placed in front of your A/C controls and one that is not usable if you are using the DC outlet.

Best Features

Price, gas mileage. Sporty looking.

Worst Features

Fix vibration issue. More cup holders with better placement. (there is ample space in the doors) Center console would be nice, although I know that deters from the sporty look. Also radio is designed so it cannot be replaced with an aftermarket.
