2002 Ford Focus Hatchback ZX3 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This car does whatever I tell it to do.
Excellent handling, good brakes,
doesn't wallow, even in heavy rain. Fun
to drive. Used it to tow a trailer [I
moved last month] for 700 miles, 80mph
wholeway, smooth as butter and nary a
burble from the car.


Best Features

handling, cruise control, wide tires, strong brakes, towing capability, good looks, versatility of hatchback


Worst Features

stereo barely adequate, needs more speakers, better range on radio, esp AM bands. gas mileage is supposed to be 25- 30, ore like 20-25. Antenna should be to side, not middle of roof. Needs bigger opening to hatchback for odd size cargo.

comfortable seating than expected.

Review

1yr and 12k miles-- I drove
competitive makes and decided Focus
over Matrix, Civic & others.
Adequate for families and
tall people, just enough space to make
this car practical. It came
with LOVELY Firestone (why is Ford is
still doing business with them)
tires. I had the dealer upgrade to a
high performance Yokohama and it
DRASTICALLY improved the handling. I
hit a curb (playing dodge cat) and
TOTALED the aluminum rims (both ends @
30mph) and my side airbag went off.
If I had had a passenger they would
have been plastered to the
door when the bag went off...WOULD
HAVE HURT!!! I wonder about the
safety of the bags


Best Features

6 disc cd player w/lots of features...comparable to a Corvette's system. Good deal for the $$$ Ford is mounting a comeback in economy car style and reliability. MUCH more get up and go at lower RPM's than the Toyota.


Worst Features

HORRIBLE resale. If I would have known I was going to sell my car in a year I would have bought the Toyota!!!! FREE Flashlight...the dome light is WORTHLESS you can't see in the back seat at night! cupholders...etc.
