Still love my ZX2, it's a keeper! by ko57 on 06/27/2007. Trim: 2002 Ford ZX2 Standard, Owned 5 years.
Pros: Very comfortable, ergonomic, the steering wheel feels good in your hands. I like Ford's design in that everything is placed as far as all the contols for the inside-the A.C., inside ceiling light, individual driver/passender light switches, the a.c. vents-everything is balanced and works well. The car accelerates well-can leave others behind, ride is smooth, the car handles very well, an easy pleasant driving vehicle. I hope it lasts forever, a good fit for me. Too bad they quit making this model, I'd love to see a re-issue, but not a drastic design as far as the exterior. I hate the newer boxy, high, big rear ended cars-what is that all about? This car is sleek for an economy car.
Cons: Didn't come with a CD player, that's why the 9 instead of a 10. Now and then at a touchless carwash, a little water-just a few drops-will get in on the driver's side window.
Overall review: After 5 years and only 30,000 miles, I hope this car lasts me a very long time. Oil change every 3000 miles, regular transmission, radiator coolant changes, and other maintenance will hopefully do the trick. The seats are comfortable in this car, the A.C. is cold. My mileage local is about 25 mpg, on the highway it gets about 28-29mpg, if I keep the speed reasonable. Driving 50mph makes a difference, will make a difference in the life of your car, but I do go about 60-65 at times. I bought this car July 31, 2002, my brother was the new car salesman. After walking the dealership with him for about 2 hours, we came back inside-nighttime-and this white ZX2 was parked right next to his cubicle, windows down. It looked sporty, I got in, and his final arm twister-wanna take it home to try?-did it. Driving a new car home, guages all lit up, everything new & works, new car smell, you won't want to bring it back especially if your trade in is costing high repair bills.
