I have a 2000 Ford Escort ZX2. It has 92000 miles, and lately I've been experiencing a weird problem.
Occasionally, but more frequently as of late, when I try to turn the key forward in an attempt to start the car, all the warning lights and everything come on as they should when the key is in the run position, but when I try to turn it all the way forward to start the car, all that happens is a short click noise.
I turn the key backward and try again, and still get the same result.
I have replaced both the starter and battery with brand new parts. Still the same issue occurs.
Love the gas mileage on this car.
However, the unreliability is getting ridiculous.
I really would like it to start when needed.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
