34: Ford Escort ZX2
The ZX2 was another attempt to boost the interest in the Escort, although it was the furthest thing from a sports car. The first problem was that the ZX2 was cheaply made. Its interior pieces would fall apart and the options list was bare at best. This was not a comfortable car to drive by any stretch of the imagination (via Motor Trend).
Ford kept the Escort ZX2 in production long after the rest of the Escort line had been discontinued. There was a market for these cars but it was not what you’d expect. The lack of reliability hampered its image and the lack of speed or features made this car a turn-off for compact car buyers who wanted some pep.
