    They Should Revive It!!! — i loved this car!! i only sold it cause it was starting to brake down on me and i could afford the repairs all at once. :( although it looke really nice and pretty, it lacked everything in the engine department!! Ford only put 140 horsepower in it. if they ever made a new one with the same design, but with more horsepower and tourq, oh and a much better clutch system....lol..... i would deff. buy it!! like mabye with 200 horsepower turbo with at least 180 pounds of tourq or more!!!SOLD!!!!!!!!!!!! but nnnoooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!! they stoped making that car in 2000.. and they only had 14 in Canada.. 3 in Montreal and mine was one of them.. i miss that car. lol

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

    Pros: alot of fun!!

    Cons: engine and parts werent the best quality

    Ugly But Good. — Ugly, but fast and solid car, which I drive now for more than 2 years and had no major problems with my Ford Escort 1.8 16V Zetec. But I have to sell it in order to be able to buy a newer Ford Focus.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Speed and grip

    Cons: It's ugly

    My First Car. — Almost everything from the steering wheel up has broken and needed replaced. The performance on it is weak when stock but can be livened up. Bought it wrecked for cheap so didnt cost too much. Car handles like a go kart making corners fun. If i was to recommend this car it would have to be a ZX2 that isnt stock

    Pros: Great gas mileage, Smooth riding.

    Cons: Lots of repairs

    Custom Ford Escort Zx2 — It's a Custom Ford Escort ZX2. At first it was a slow automatic transmission car, but then I added bolt on performance parts and changed it to a manual transmission. It now has pep to it. Plans for it include Turboing it to a minimal of 8 psi and then

    Pros: Custom header turner car

    Cons: slow.

    Kinda Silly. — It's a Ford. You either enjoy that fact or you don't. It's the S/R model, which basically means that they threw an assload of random Rousch Mustang parts into an Escort - BAD IDEA. It works on some levels, but is an awful idea on so many other. It basically takes an inexpensive car and makes it overly expensive to maintain in the long run.

    Pros: Nice design

    Cons: Poorly executed experiment, geared towards woman..

    It'll Get You From A To B, And You Might Have Fun Doing It — Pretty good performance for a car in it's class. Handles well given the skinny tires. Build quality is pretty solid, the oly major repair I've had to do was a transmission overhaul, part of which might just be the way I drive the car. Get's good gas mileage(~30) when I don't have my foot to the floor(which is most of the time). Compared to a lot of cars my friends own, this is definitely more fun to drive.

    Pros: Small, fuel efficient, fun to drive

    Cons: Transmission, Tire Size

    Too Bad You Are Gone — My second car, Not a bad car for a senior in high school to just drive around in. also not a bad car to learn the basics of car body, engine, and stereo modification. great pick up and speed, I wrecked this car with a front end crash and walked away without a scratch very safe car

    Pros: Great acceleration, 5 speed transmission, small, light weight, easy stereo removal, decent speed and sound, safe

    Cons: Small, light weight, very bad in different weather conditions, worst in the winter,

    Civic Potential Rival — It was a pretty good car, except for the loss of power when you turn on the A/C. I never had any problem with it and the quality was better than todays Ford's, specially in plastics. The setero was pretty bad, if you´re thinking about getting one of these I strongly recommend you to change it with any aftermarket sound products.

    Pros: It slows down when you turn on the A/C.

    Cons: The stereo is pretty bad, I actually replace it with a Pioneer and Infinity Speakers
