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


Review

I was not very happy with this vehicle whatsoever. It seems like I had everything happen to this vehicle. Side mirrors just simply fell off for no apparent reason. Alignment went off consistently. Transmission went out ($3000). To be honest I NEVER felt comfortable getting into it because I was always worried it would fall apart. Very fun vehicle to drive when it actually ran.


Best Features

Factory sound system, acceleration, great turning.


Worst Features

More reliable, give me a transmission and some components that have some sort of longevity. Definitely got what I paid for.

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


Review

Bought factory certified at 13500. 1 wk later safety recall on engine cable. At 30000 the front brakes and rotors wore thru. My previous car went 150000 on rotors and brakes. I know how to drive and take care of a car. Had them replaced with heavy duty rotors. Even new brakes squeal like a pig. Part of the appeal, huh? During ice and snow the steering wheel will whip out of your hands when turning a curve. The next safety recall, the fuel pump. Causes surges, lags and hey, no power while going 50 mph. They fixed for free. The CD player has now died. After a fuel injection cleaning and tune up I do get 42 on highway, 28 in city, less with A/C.


Best Features

First car with cruise control, I like it and tilt column.


Worst Features

A big trunk should have a big opening so you can fit big things in. Make driver armrest longer. Better lumbar support. Need lock on glove compartment. Back seats should fold down. Cup holders too close to dash. Place headlights higher for better light.

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


Review

I really like this car. Its fun to drive and it has alota pep in it for a small car. I got this car 8/04. The dealer was having a big sale but in their add they missprinted the price of my car! I got it for just under $7,000! Its loaded except it doesn't have a sunroof:( Front Brakes sound and feel weird some times but they work when you need them. I have drive 1000 miles on it just this last month lol. The car came with 57,000 miles on it already. When I got the car the bumper had lots of specaly dots of missing paint. But the dealer hooked me up with a free touch up job. Another cool thing they gave me free was keyless entry.


Best Features

I like the stereo system sounds good. like the alloys. like the fogs. like the keyless entry. they pepy 2.0liter. I really like mostly everything about this car!


Worst Features

NOt much just the simple things dont really matter!

Review

I just got this car on August 2, 2003. It is my first car, and I am a guy, but it is pretty sporty, the 2Dr ZX3 Hatchback. I wish I could of gotten a Chevy Camero Z28 310 Hp, but I ended up with this pretty darn good car with 59,064 miles on it. I know a good car when I see one.


Best Features

Almost everything.


Worst Features

More horsepower, way more.
