Perfect for single, low budget individuals

2002 Ford Escort ZX2 Standard

It is only two door so not ideal for daily commute with kids. But it is cheap on gas. It only seats two people in the back because there's only two seatbelts. It doesn't have much power. And it is also very low to the ground. So not ideal or very comfortable for people who are tall. It has a rather large trunk space. And it is pretty easy to work on under the hood. Everything is pretty easy to get to.

It is a beautiful car inside and out.

2002 Ford Escort ZX2 Standard

It has motor mount problems, it performs great except doesn't get up to speed like I would like. I love how it looks inside and out, it is very smooth and pretty. It has ac unit problems and overheats sometimes. Other than the problems, it is a perfect little car to get you where you're going. I honestly love it.

This is a great first car for a teenager!

2002 Ford Escort ZX2 Standard

I've had the car for 4 years now and I haven't had any troubles. Runs like a sports car sits like a Cadillac. Gets great highway mileage and ok town mileage. The only thing I've ever had to fix on this car is a motor mount that had broke. All and all this is a great first car for a teenager

Love the car. It is comfortable even though it is compact.

2002 Ford Escort ZX2 Standard

The first few years I had no problem with the car. It is fun to drive and even though it is small cat it really runs great. I have had it 16 years and it runs like it did when new. I have had very few problems with it even as old as it is. I would buy the same model again.
