1999 Ford Escort ZX2 4 cylinder from North America
- Cracking paint job.
- Broken timing belts and tension rods.
- New water pump.
- A 7x13in hole rusted out in trunk.
- Chucks missing from rim.
- Replaced wheel bearing.
- Replaced calipers.
- Replaced hub assembly.
- Replaced battery.
And all this happened over the past 11 months.
Never ever buy this car. It will bring you nothing but costly repairs.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

You do know that you are talking about an entry-level Ford that is 10 years old and has over 100,000 miles on it, don't you?
Perhaps if it was a new car you could be so negative.
There are no LIFETIME WARANTIES on cheap automobiles you know.

You didn't have it inspected before the purchase, did you?

You're complaining about a car that you bought with 95,000 miles on the clock that had a few failures!

Truthfully, this is not that bad of a car. You just don't seem to realize that a 10-year old car is going to need some attention before it's running well again. That being said, I own a '95 Neon that has 83,617 miles on it and I bought it when it had 79,000 miles exactly. Even I have not had nearly as many repairs as this person has with their Escort. So that definitely says something...
