ZX3 Nirvana

Vehicle

2001 Ford Focus ZX3 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This is a great commuter car, perfect for quick maneuvers and fast stops. I'm tall and the seats are comfortable and the visibility is great. The only defect was a faint rattle in the rear which was quickly repaired by the dealer. The ZX3 is a great value for the money.

Focus On This!

Vehicle

2001 Ford Focus SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I bought my 2001 Ford Focus on or around the 5th of August (2002) at around 30,000 miles. Later that week, I drove it up to Vermont for a vacation, and the car had problems accelerating. This happened on the way back too. The car also started slowing down for no reason, until it was going about 10 mph. We let it sit for a while, then drove it home with no problems.

Fun Wagon

Vehicle

2001 Ford Focus SE 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

This is my second Focus. My first was a lemon (dealer caused the problem)that Ford bought back. I like it so much that I thought I'd give it another try. I'm not disappointed. Good interior room and lots of space to haul things. Having a kid and a 85 lbs dog forced me to get a wagon and the only thing I don't like is driving an automatic. Will I buy another??We'll see in 4 more years when it is paid off. Right now I'll say YES!

Don't buy this car
By Puddgomez on 08/15/02 00:00 AM (PDT)

Vehicle

2001 Ford Focus LX 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I've had my Focus LX for only a short time and the clutch has already gone out six times. The rear defrost refuses to work and the brakes are crappy at best. I don't think I'm buying American cars anymore.

2001 Ford Focus ZX3 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I originally bought my Focus for the gas mileage as I have a 190 mile round trip daily commute. The zippy engne, and great handling have been a nice suprise. With 30k miles in 11 months the quality has been consistant with no problems to report. Really a great car.

Review

After 1 year and 15000 miles I can confidently say the Focus is a fun, dependable, well built car. Lots of trunk room and plenty of passenger space. Not one problem to date.
