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!


Best Features

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


Worst Features

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

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!

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!


Best Features

Sound system, telescopic steering wheel and overall comfort.


Worst Features

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.


Best Features

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


Worst Features

Make quality job #1
