    Rare And Sporty! — Rare and sporty! If you're hoping to find a car that will get people to look again when you drive by, a ZX2 is the car for you. Since they were only sold in '98, '99 and '00, you don't get to see one every day. Its 2.0 L VCT Zetec engine can take on any Civic, so you won't have to worry about losing your bragging rights! Great visibility all around, small to fit in tight parking spots and easy to customize. Gotta love it!

    Pros: Pros: Low fuel consumption, very responsive acceleration, appealing design, neat interior finition. Inexpensive car and insurance coverage. Can be equipped with power everything.

    Cons: Too many variations on the same model: HOT or COOL models don't mean anything, it all depends on what the buyer picked in the options list. Not enough room in the back. Seats are a little hard and not too comfortable for the longer trips.

    Small, But Convenient — This car gets pretty decent gas mileage, looks all right. really good turning radius and handling. Idles really loudly though, and is small, so no leg room.

    This Car Makes An Excellent Starter Car. — After my brief encounter with a 1990 Volvo, I received my first REAL car, a 1999 Ford Escort ZX2, as a highschool graduation gift. After years of road abuse from the wear and tear of the bumpy gravel and the long road trips home ( I travel a lot by the way), I have found that this little old coupe can be a real trooper. Now that's now to say that I haven't had problems with it; infact, I just had to rebuild the transmission due to a lot of transmission defects. However, the transmissions problem mainly resulted from the high mileage trips. All in all this car makes a great starter car, very affordable and reliable.

    Pros: For the most part this car is very reliable and can withstand heavy mileage.

    Cons: The interior space in limited for passengers and lags with heavy weight.
