Pros

Very reliable,  economical to operate...30+MPG, four doors, not large so very easy to park in small space, great visibility, power locks and windows, automatic. and cloth seats very comfortable.

Cons

shakes at idle a little because of motor mounts poor insulation.

Great Little Car — Love the size...small yet four doors for convience and a suprisingly large trunk. Car is never trouble, I just turn the key and go. Its quieter than my new Focus. Wish Ford had done a little better on the rubber donuts of the motor mounts, but that's about the only thing I can complain about. All round it's great.

Not very flashy

It's A Good Car — It's just a regular car, nothing blends in better than an escort. However, it's cheap to maintain, has great mpg, and is a nice size, so you have no trouble fitting into that tiny parking spot that is too small a squeeze for a regular sized sedan.

My Car — Its been in an accident still runs good. The Performance Is Good. It rear ended a car and still drives. need i say more about quality. The appearance isn't bad, gas mileage could be better but its good enough for now. The car is fun and compact.

Excellent Car To Have — The Ford Escort ZX2 was built to compete against Honda's Civic. Ford Wanted to show they had power in the Tuner area. Its overall performance is great and weighs less that the Honda Civic. Build quality is ok. The could have lost the round look and went for a little more square. Appearance is is the same. Maint. on the Escort is minor. except for the Transmission. To much hard shifting and you will have to get a new one. Fun Factor. Let's go on a dirt run.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Great, Reliable Car For The Budget Minded Looking For Fun. — Bought my '02 in Dec. 2005 for $4500 at a junk yard. I needed a car and was desperate found this one on the internet it had 17,000 miles on it and has leather, sunroof, power everything, and a 6-disc CD changer. Now it has 77,000 miles on it and haven't had any problems with it. I'm not easy on my vehicles and this car has handled everything from gravel roads to no roads and everything in between.

Pros

Power

Cons

Factory tires

25

Zx2 — ZX2 is best car I have driven. More power with some great fuel efficiency. Wish Ford would reproduce this car. Original ZX2 owned required little maintenance. Factory tires though are not very good. Car is very sleek and stylish. CD unit though is in the trunk and this seemed to be an odd place to put it.

Pros

comfortable, moderate gas comsumption

Cons

lack of power and handling. dimming lights, everything rattles

25

Steve — Its alright. Since I put in two Kenwood KFC subs with a 1800 watt Kenwood amplifier, I've noticed that everything rattles within the car. The DVD player head unit from Jensen could be alot better, It takes a while to load. Before i put in the capacitor on the wiring kit the headlights and interior lights would dim. They don't dim anymore.
