2001 ZX3 base 5 speed with A/C

Vehicle
2001 Ford Focus ZX3 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Review
Bought 4/02 with 7,800 miles. On 6/06 have 24,500 miles. So far have had 2 or 3 recalls done. Have letters for 2 or 3 service bulletins. Like my Focus but only rate this vehicle average. Problems so far; faulty gas cap covered under warranty and the hood release under the dash board disintegrated and had to be replaced. Biggest complaint about this car is the a/c. It does not get very cold. Have dark interior and finally had the windows tinted to keep the heat down on hot days. Average 28-30 mpg in blended driving. Would buy a Focus ZX3 again but would have to be 2003 or newer.
Favorite Features
I'm 6'3 so I like the seat height handle on the drivers side.
Suggested Improvements
Better mpg, build quality, colder a/c.
