1999 Ford Escort ZX2 Hot Sport from North America
One of the best cars I have ever owned. A pleasure to drive and very economical
Emergency brake cables started to stick on. Replaced by Ford at no cost to me. No problems with anything else.
I have owned Ford's all my life, I absolutely love this car.
Just turn the key and it is raring to go.
Very quick take off, whether it be on the level or starting off on a hill, this car has power.
A friend of mine who has a 1988 Lincoln, drove it once and he said he was really impressed with it. He couldn't believe what quick acceleration it has for a 4 cylinder. Before he drove it, I told him how quick and fast it was, well he found out for himself.
I love everything about this little car.
It handles like a dream, no matter what type of road you are on. Superb traction on all road conditions.
I always use my Cruise on trips because you do not feel the speed you are going and could very easily get a speeding ticket. It's a speedy one and a pleasure to drive.
Excellent gas mileage. Averages 38 mpg. On a long trip it gets even more.
The Premium sound package is great.
I love the power moon roof.
Excellent air conditioning.
I love the looks of this ZX2. It sure turns a lot of heads when I drive by.
I will not put it in the salt, this car is truly a keeper.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
