1999 Ford Focus — Extremely fuel efficient. Small fun car to drive, it got me everywhere I ever needed! Didn't have the heart to trade it in when I bought my Focus, so I kept it, it is still used. Very rarely needed to go to the shop, only had one thing major happen to it. Wrecked once, took me forever to fix! It's a good car!

Pros: fuel efficient, fun to drive

Cons: two doored cars aren't fun at times especially when you have lots of people trying to cram into the car!

Very Reliable — It is a very reliable car. I also like that it is rated poorly because they are cheap to buy. I have owned 3 escorts so far but am looking for a change in the near future. No need of repairs. Performance could use a little upgrades but Ford made it difficult to even put a header on. Appearance is great outside it looks very modern especially with the black headlights smoked and the trim all painted. Cost of ownership is around $1 a month so far and gets 35mpg going back and forth to work (very little highway) It is not really that fun to drive (automatic) but VERY reliable.

Pros: low maintenance, high mpg, quality is good, and used price tag cheap

Cons: not a good car for tinkering, performance is less than desired and the dash does not match any of the other trim.

Awesome Zx2 — its a good all around car that gets me where i need to go, its 0-60 time is currently 7.1 seconds but with my new rousch intake and tokiko springs i hope to get in the high 6 second range, it has all the options too, plus it gets 31 mpg

Pros: most everything

I Own A Manual Transmission So It Is Great For Gas Milage — Good car. Not exactly a sports car with the four cylinder but it picks up pretty well, considering. Parts are easy to come by when needed and repairs are minimal with the way i drive and take care of it (exceptionally)

Pros: Gas milage

Cons: not very comfortable

Escort Zx2- The Name Just Wasn't Fair. (and Was Dropped In 2001-2002 To Just Zx2) — Though technically an Escort, the ZX2 was really the progenitor of the new ZX3. The 2.0 Liter DOHC I-4 Ztech was a fantastic platform to build off of for "tuners". So much so, in fact that they recycled most of it for the Focus power plant. Coming with 130hp out of the box, it beat the Civic EX in power (127hp). Having a better weight/power ratio than a Focus, as well as superior gear ratios, it was notable quicker and more agile than a similarly equipped Focus. My ZX2 went through various stages of performance modifications: Cold Air intake. K&N Filter Charger Diablo Superchip Borla Exhaust Limited Slip Differential Removed speed limiter... With 93 Octane, I was running about 180hp at the flywheel, 150ish at the wheels. After removing some extra weight, the power to weight ratio was pretty impressive. All this and it got 35-40mpg if you babied it... not that I usually did. I loved the car. I miss the car. I want another one.

Pros: Fast, agile, great mpg, excellent platform to build off of.

Cons: Mediocre-at-best build quality as far as fit & finish is concerned. Plastic interior etc.

Gets From Point A To B — Not a bad car for a first car. Good gas mileage. only problem is the head gasket goes easily and the parts are too expensive for such a cheap car.

Pros: nothing

Cons: parts way to expensive  $1500 for head gasket replacement

Too Old — exterior is pretty boring. inside is comfy but thats precisely whats wrong with it. He goes like s*!? off a shovel if you push him (he's called Terry...) but pretty good overall car. Not many problems with him just general maintenance, touch wood.

Pros: Finesse engine so vcan pick up a fairly respectable speed. Runs forever though, even when he's poorly...

Cons: he's a ford...pretty mundane average ford features like wheels etc
