2000 Ford Focus SE 4dr Sedan


Review

I owned this vehicle for just under four years and 85,000 miles. The recalls were annoying and I stopped getting them corrected, which actually led to one problem. The tires wear out quickly, as do the brakes. Ford did replace all the brakes free of charge after one year. I had the rear left wheel bearing break at about 70K miles. I think this was a recall issue. I had several problems with a bad battery cable causing the car not to start (or die in traffic). I think the car juiced batteries. I went through 3 in four years. Other than tires/brakes/wheel bearing, the only other problem was a broken air hose (about $125 repair).


Best Features

Large trunk, you feel high in the vehicle so you can see the road and surroundings pretty well.


Worst Features

Arm rests should be standard. The one I got didn't have one. The batteries are "reversed polarity" which makes it tricky to find the correct size at places like Wal-Mart.

2000 Ford Focus SE 4dr Wagon


Review

Can not believe the cargo space. We had a full size 1951 Plymouth Station Wagon that did not have anymore room than the Focus. We like everything about it so far except for the gas milage, it's nothing close to whats advertised after a complete tuneup,oil change & filter,and air filter it's still only in the lower 20's. Otherwise a fantastic auto for the money.


Best Features

Passenger seat can adjust up or down, Srereo w/CD player, rear wiper w/ heated rear window and best of all the rear cargo space w/seat down.


Worst Features

Gas milage should at least come close to advertised.

2000 Ford Focus ZX3 2dr Hatchback


Review

This car is great! I got it as a graduation gift and drive it every where. It is almost four years old and I am about to roll over to 100,000 miles! I intend to drive this car until it falls apart, and with the way it is going it will be a while before that happens! I cannot say enough about the great size and handling of this car. It is so fun to drive and I get compliments on it all the time. I definitely will stay in the focus family when I decide to get something new!


Best Features

I love the hatchback design. It is so easy to drive and handles well. I just love the look of this car.


Worst Features

The braking system that Ford chose is one that wears out frequently. That is the only thing I'd change about my baby!
