Best gas mileage is at 60 mph
By Tom P. on


2003 Ford Escort ZX2 2dr Coupe (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


I drive this car 100 miles a day. My best gas mileage is at 60 mph. 40.1 mpg at that speed with the A/C off and 37.6 with it on. This car gets 33 mpg at 80 mph withthe A/C on and mpg increase as you slow down. I've owened this car since it was new. I bought it with 6 miles on it I have put 149,994 miles on this car and it has yet to leave me walking. It is a small car and has very good looks for a small car. Its roomy in side and not bad on long trips. I've driven it will 3 other adults in for over 4 hours. The trunk is very big for a car of this size. The rearseat folds down and I've put 4 8ft 4x4 in side the car. I do not know why Ford quit making them with gas prices as high as they are.

Best Features

5 speed transmission. Nice power for small engine. Very low maintenance. I put a A/C compressor in the car in 150000 miles. Very dependable car.
