2000 Ford Escort review: Our expert's take

Vehicle Overview
Escort has been Ford’s best-selling small car since 1981, but the company expects the new Focus to take over that role. Escort continues as a four-door sedan and sporty ZX2 coupe. The station wagon is gone, and the sedan now comes in a single price level. Ford has not said how long it will continue offering the Escort alongside the Focus, which was designed in Europe and will be sold worldwide.

Interior
Like most small cars, there’s enough room for most adults to be comfortable in the front bucket seats, but the rear seat has limited headroom and legroom. The rear seatback folds to expand the trunk’s 12.8 cubic feet of cargo space. The modern dashboard design has easy-to-read gauges and controls conveniently grouped in the center.

Under the Hood
You can buy an Escort with any engine you want, as long as it is a 110 horsepower, 2.0-liter four-cylinder. A five-speed manual transmission is standard and a four-speed automatic is optional.

Performance
Escort provides economical transportation in a conventional small-car package. Because Focus is the center of attention, bigger discounts should be available on the Escort.

Awesome car

Runs extremely well and had little to no problems with it when i owned one. I would recommend this as a great first car

2.4

You can do better.

The car has no leg room in it. It sits too low to the ground. It was not my first choice of car due to its size. The seats are uncomfortable, and tough to adjust. It was fine for a year, but like every used car, it can have costly problems. The gas mileage is its best feature. Other than that, the car is not worth it.

2.7

Don't get it.

At the time when I bought this car I thought it was a pretty snazzy car considering what I paid for it. The gas mileage was pretty good and it packed quite a bit of power. Although, once this car starts breaking down thats the end of it. I have spent more money on fixing it than what I paid for it. Once one thing is fixed something else breaks. Unless you want to spend half your fourtune on repairs I would suggest you pass it up.
