2000 Ford Escort ZX2-R 2.4 from North America
FORD = Fall Off Road Dead!!
Oh boy! Owning this car for almost 10 years from brand new...
Power steering shot at 30,000.
Tranny went at 60,000.
Both oxygen sensors shot at 80,000.
Tranny shot AGAIN at 100,000.
All tierod ends and parts that hold all that crap went every 30,000.
Head gasket and radiator went about every 40,000 miles.
Seats are worn bad.
I would NOT buy this model again... but I would buy another model.
For the most part, if you have the money to fix this car ALL the time, it can be a very nice car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I love the acronym that you came up with! I was going to write a scathing review on the worst piece of crap I've ever driven, but other people's horrifying experiences kinda humored me. This model/make/company is so horrible it's laughable. I do not know why they continue making cars to these days. To call them cars is an overstatement. Let's just say owning an Escort ZX2 almost made me want to swear off cars altogether. Never, ever, ever, ever buy a Ford!!!

Fall Off Road Dead? Um I think you mean Found On Road Dead, or Driver Returns On Foot.
