2000 Ford Focus ZTS 4dr Sedan


Review

I think the Focus is a great car for the money. Looking at some of the other reviews made me realize that people get, what they pay for. I have only had one problem with my Focus, and luckily my Brother is a Ford technican, and advised me the fuel pump was being recalled. In a little over a year I have about 50,000 miles on my Focus and am still loving it!!! Ford did a great Job!


Favorite Features

Sony stero system, 6 disc cd changer, leather seats and wheels!


Suggested Improvements

Make the back end a little lower! Can't see to back up!

Favorite Features

The engine is great on this car when it gets fuel to it. The gas mileage it pretty decent at 28-30mi/gal mostly highway. The extended waranty!


Suggested Improvements

Other than the above mentioned, a larger gas tank (300mi before gas light comes on), reducing the amount of brake dust(I cannot keep the front wheels clean), and a little more power when running the air conditioning

Review

I am not one of those that get into the whole heated debate about Ford vs. Chevy, etc. Some have given me hell about owning a Ford, but I can't complain. (yet) Not that I'm expecting things to go wrong, just have my eyes open in case. I love my little Focus ZTS and I think it looks sleek, sharp and sexy. I enjoy the sound system (not so sure my fellow commuters do...) and the EASE of steering. I am a happy first-time FORD owner. Thank you!


Favorite Features

Sound system, telescopic steering wheel and overall comfort.


Suggested Improvements

Better console for drinks. I'm a chick and I like little cubby holes, compartments, etc. Oh, and an ashtray for those of us who still smoke!

Review

I had a Focus that I just sold. Before 34,000 miles my fuel pump had rusted - car died on the off ramp of a major interstate. Numerous brake issues. I was told by one of the techs that "Focus' just have squeeky brakes." Rattling under the car that no one was ever able to isolate. Wheels were way out of aligment and did not find this out till the 24K maintaince.


Favorite Features

the keys, the horn, the headlights, the turn signal


Suggested Improvements

Make quality job #1
