2000 Ford Focus ZTS 4dr Sedan
My ZTS handles great. It corners like crazy. I drive very fast to and from work everyday, and am happy with its reliability considering this. I know there are a lot of complaints out there about reliability, but I wonder if my luck has anything to do with letting the engine warm up with 1-2 minutes of idling every time I cold start.
Very painless recall services. Replacement parts and labor can be had pretty cheaply.
I need more power without added weight. An underdrive pulley helps. I want a cold-air intake next, and to get it lowered a little.
