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.

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.)

Been in an accident

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.

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.

Dream Car — My Car Reaches Up To A Top Speed Of 106. It Takes 6.5 Seconds To Reach 60mph. Its A Nice Looking Car That Has A Sun Roof. My Car Is Fun To Drive All The Time. Get About 250 Miles On A Full Tank Of Gas. The Only Complain I Have About It Is That It Idles When Stopped But Thats All Thats Negative About It.

lack of power and handling. dimming lights, everything rattles

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.

Factory tires

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.

Its A Pretty Nice Car To Get You From A To B And Look Good. — Its a nice reliable car that gets you where you need to go with good gas mileage. To fill it with 91 octane at 4 bucks is about 30 dollars and gets u close to 300 miles till ya need more.
