"Fun to drive; great reliability; good gas mileage (hint: with the stick shift, premium is actually cheaper than regular because you get MUCH better city mileage). If you take good care of it, it will take care of you! Ford has a winner here, and the performance is not bad at all for a 4 cylinder engine. Parts are not expensive, like some imports."

"good on gas and easy to drive as long as you are OK with a small car this car is better in town then on the highway. one thing that i wish ford never did was make it so the engine shuts down after reaching 100 mph. after all that its an easy going car if you keep up on maintenance"

"I have drivin this car from Montana to Seattle at least 12 times and from Seattle to Las Vegas 2 Times and from Washington to Oregon at least 25 times!!!! This car will never die it just keeps going it's amazing!!! The only problem I have ever had with it was I needed to get a new battery and new breaks but I did that in 2012 so that's normal though this car is a TROOPER"

"I use to have an old escort station wagon until they went to the Focus station wagon. I loved the focus wagon, it would go through the snow and I could fill the hatch up with all my kids junk. I could get 3 kids in carseats in the back and 2 adults in the front. We traveled all over the place in it. It gets really good gas mileage too. I would highly recommend them to anyone who can still find a station wagon version. Very reliable and the upkeep/maintenance is pretty cheap too. The only thing I would change about them is the rocker panels rot out and need to be replace."

"Ford missed the boat with this one! The zx2SR should NOT have been associated with (called) an Escort! This limited edition car, developed for Speed Racing (hence the "SR") with only a certain amount of colors available should have been given a "new" name or been called some sort of Mustang! It is truly a sports car and was made for pickup and speed! FORD--you could have had a real winner with this car, but not as an ESCORT!"
