Good Car — Fuel efficient, good handling, comfortable, decent cheap transportation if you take care of the maintenance. Not many people took care of them and as the are getting usually over 100k miles when you find them you have lots of little things to fix. Fuel pumps, clutches, relays, pcv, plugs, wires, fuel filter and general tune up stuff makes it a great running little engine. Do not overfill or underfil it with oil.

Its A Very Nice Car — its a pretty good car, but I'm not done with it yet. its performance is excellent, it accelerates and breaks excellently, it handles fairly well, and its fun to drive. its appearance is alright, the only problem i have with it is the back. the layout of the taillights and the roundness of the car looks a little weird but I'm planning on changing that. when the window is rolling down it creates a squeak that I'm looking into. it gets about 36 mpg average, and the car is very fun to drive.

Pros: the acceloration

Cons: the top speed

I Love It! — I love my car except that the person who had it before did some stupid stuff to it. It's fun to work on, not too difficult, and it is super fun to drive and drift around corners. even though it's an FF it is awesome for drifting on snow!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: it's awesome!.  Good performance, MPG, etc.

Cons: it's a Ford

My Zx2 — The scort has a very ridged chassis, that provides an amazing platform for upgrading. It shares parts with many other vehicles, there for part interchangeability is good. There are a good number of performance parts out there, but not so many that you cant tell quality from crap. It is sleek in appearance to a point that its deceptive and not everybody realizes that its an escort. The best part of all is that there cheap. If you total it you can get another for nothing. Over all it's great car to drive....

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

Pros: I own one.... FTW

Cons: slush box automatic.... :(

2001 Ford Zx2 — *The performance is, well it's an Escort. However, a low 7 second 0-60 is still decent in today's sub $20k coupe market. I really enjoy the 40mpg I average with it every time I drive; sometimes higher, rarely lower than 35mpg. *With the car being the lowest priced MSRP car from Ford when new, and all the ZX2s were built in Mexico so it's not surprising that after 127k miles, it has a few rattles. A few items have needed replacing [tie rod ends, 1 ball joint, 1 outer wheel bearing] but nothing out of the ordinary of normal ZX2 issues. *Everyone's got an opinion, and I still like the looks of the car nearly 8 years after I bought it. *Once the warranty ran out [72m/75k mile], obviously the cost went up. However, the highest service cost so far has only been just over $500. I've hit a high of 45.98mpg with the car so far, though I have numerous occasions where the car gets over 40mpg. *I enjoy driving the car everyday, in any weather. I would drive the car anywhere.

Pros: Great on gas, simple to operate [no electronic do-dads], replacement parts are low priced.

Cons: Not really much.
