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

Review

Bought this new in 2001 and now use it as a second car. Much more fun to drive than my Camry. Takes the Western Pa hills and curves with ease. Very reliable. Only had to replace the spark plug wires after about 70,000 miles.

Never buy one this

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

Review

You are better of setting a few thousand dollars on fire and then buying a used Honda or Toyota. I have spent 3K on this in the past 6 weeks, three trips to the dealership and it only has 65k on it. I truly would love to see the US produce a car that did not break down every season, but to date every experence that I have had over the past 12 years with US cars are the same. My wifes Honda has 100k and has never, I repeat never had a single problem.

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

Review

I bought my 2001 focus off a small used dealer for a great price with 75000 miles on the car. I didn't know much about it when I purchased it, but once I saw it, I knew it was for me. I travel a lot for my job. I needed a dependable fuel efficient car. What I didn't know is that I found the most reliable car I've ever owned. I put 100000 miles on the car since then and only replaced the tires. The tires do wear faster then other vehicles but a small price to pay for no major repairs! I love my car.

RIP 2001 Focus

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

Review

I bought this car brand new in September 2001. It has been a very dependable car. Replaced the fuel pump once under the recall, had both back window gears replaced. Took great care of it. The engine blew up last week with nearly 144,000 miles on her. Due to depreciation it's not worth putting a new engine in her so I've moved up to a 2007 Focus. The 2001 was a wonderful vehicle: fun to drive and fuel efficient before fuel efficiency was cool. I'm going to miss my blue beastie.

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

Review

I love my Ford Focus ZTS (4dr Sedan). It's the 2001 model, which I bought in 2004 with 18,000 miles on it...my car now has 70,000 miles on it (2009) and I love it just as much as I ever did. It's fast, SAFE, and reliable. The Focus was listed as one of the safest vehicles to drive recently and I would have to agree with that 100%. I've NEVER had a problem with my focus in the years that I've owned it and couldn't be happier with it. The only thing I would SUGGEST to others is to NOT get low profile tires/rims. My focus came with that feature and I got flat tires all the time, but I switched out the tires for typical ones and haven't had a problem since!

Throw away car

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

Review

Bad motor problems, Too mini plastic parts on motor. Pullies, stat. housing. radiator. Electrical problems, burned up factory installed wiring harness, alt. went out and you cannot replace it in the drive way, it needs a lift to remove from the bottom. Plastick core support? power window motor went bad. Rear view mirrors will brake off if bumped in any direction. Transponder key broke in half. Upper timing belt cover cracked and making noise. I have spent nearly 2000.00 fixing a car I bought for 3000.00. KEEP away from this car.. Looks good, very bad quality. It will suck you dry 100 bucks at a time.

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

Review

I bought my 01 Focus used it only had 48k on it, 8 days after having it the front axel snapped, my fuel pump went out a couple months later, my timing belt went out after about 7 months both back windows motors went out after a year, the car idles and feels like its trying to die and not one mechanic can tell me why, I would never recommend this car to anyone, it is a horrible car and has left me stranded with my 3 children atleast 5 times. its poor quality for the price you pay.

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

Review

I purchased my focus used with 21000 miles on it.The wagon was very useful for utility purposes.The car had many accessories that were very useful.I loved the car the first couple years.But then it started to cost me to much to maintain. I traded it in to a local ford dealer at about 67,500 miles on it.I had given up on it and told them why.

I Love My Focus ZTS

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

Review

I've had this car since January 01. It's fun to drive, handles very well, has excellent passenger room and trunk space. Good small car for mostly in-town use that I can take on a longer road trip and it doesn't beat me up. I only drive it 8000 miles per year so I might have it another 8 years if it holds up. I've had some occasional minor but annoying throttle body sticking since I bought it. The dealer replaced it once under warranty, but it still sticks periodically.
