2000 Ford Focus ZTS 4dr Sedan


Review

For the amount of money you could spend on transportation of your choice, the Ford ZTS is just about everything you could want in a small family car. It is very economical (28-33 m.p.g.),very attractive in and out, well laid out interior and instruments. My only "beef" is that it is still under powered, especially with th A/C on. PLEASE, Ford, offer the ZTS with the same engine you put in those ugly ZX3/5s!!!

Review

This is the worst car I've ever owned from a quality standpoint. 8 recalls. Had the a/c compressor replaced, three weeks later the evaporator coil had to be replaced. The transmission leaked and had to take it back 3 times to get it fixed by the world's sorriest excuse for a service department. Realized several months after the a/c evaporator was replaced the heat didn't blow out of the floor vents anymore- dealer didn't hook back up correctly and then didn't want to take responsibility. Front drive hubs replaced at 38,000 mi.

Review

I all around enjoy this vehicle. I don't think that after owning this car I will be able to drive anything else like it (cavalier, neon, civic) because the road handling is THAT GOOD. Engine is peppy when it is needed and the car reinforces that feeling with a good sound. It could use some more pep, but Ford fixed that with the 2003/4 PZEV engine. I am truely extatic with this car (purchased used last July for $10.5k). Go to a Ford dealership, test drive the car and take it on a hilly and curvy road and you too will understand why this car is so much fun to drive!


Best Features

Steering is impecable, makes anything, ANYTHING, in the same class look and feel like a toy. The trunk space is huge for a compact car. The ride height is also very nice, I am 6'4" tall and have a good 5" of space over my head (seat fully UP!).


Worst Features

Brake dust (fixed w/ 4-wheel disc brakes), road noise at "excessive" speeds (fixed in 2003), rear seat lighting. Revoking Klaben Ford's dealer license (sold the vehicle to me in "pristine condition", had a broken spring in the front).

Review

Excellent car. No issues save a couple transparent recalls. Handles very well, fun to drive. The car is very comfportable with and amazing amount of interior for its size. The stock sound system is. So far wer have a little over 60,000 trouble free miles.


Best Features

stereo and handling


Worst Features

The opening for the trunk could be a little bigger. Some items that would otherwise fit in the surprising large space won't fit through the opening. Now that the hatchback comes in a five door I would recomend instead of the sedan for the above reason.
