2000 Ford Escort ZX2 1.8 from North America
Glad I chose this car; its solid construction and safety features saved my life!
Clear coat began to bubble and chip off of the spoiler.
Seats starting to wear badly.
I was impressed with the reliability of my ZX2. I never had any problems with it, even though I was hard on it and a little lax about taking it in for scheduled maintenance.
This car saved my life! Head on collision with a brick wall, going 35 m.p.h. and I walked away with scratches!!! I'm very thankful that this car is built solidly and the safety features worked well.
I would highly recommend the 2000 ZX2.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

If you got rear-ended at 50 mph and struck anything in front of you and are alive to write this comment, I would say the car did a pretty good job of saving your skin, too, airbag failure or not. I have heard about shops stealing airbags from cars and replacing them with wadded up plastic grocery bags. Are you sure you were not the victim of a scam like that?
