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


My 1999 ZX2 jerks when going slow such
as a slow take off or stop n go on the
frwy. Service Mgr told me thats normal.
Feels like it wants to stall. Taken it
in 7 times. No leg room in back seat
and if you'te tall your head hits the
top of the car. Air conditioner stopped
working at 35,000. Good on gas,
reliable. Great take off. The jerking
has turned me off. Can feel like I'm
learning to drive a stick and can't
balance the gas and clutch. Other than
that - it's okay.

Best Features

Sporty without the cost of being sporty (including insurance). Reliable, great on gas. Great take off.

Worst Features

Can't believe they sell a car knowing it jerks (or is Serv Mgr full of it because they don't want to fix the transmission?) More head room in the back for passengers. Design cup holders to hold large large cups from BK, McD's, etc so they don't tilt and spill.
