2002 Ford Focus Hatchback ZX5 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


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.

2002 Ford Focus Hatchback ZX5 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This vehicle is fun to drive and excellent as far as gas mileage is concerned. The Ford Focus that I bought last year has been great for me, an on- the-go student.I love road trips and this car has proven itself. It can go anywhere reliably and for very little money. I have had only one problem, with the CD player, but it gets used A LOT! Ford fixed it with no problem.


Best Features

Favorite features are the CD player, of course, and the really good factory speakers and stereo. The six disc changer is something I can't live without now that I'm used to it. I also love the remote locks and trunk pop, and all the pockets that give you a place to put stuff.


Worst Features

The dome light needs to be placed farther back, or another one needs to be installed in the back seat area. The back seat is pitch black at night with all the map lights and dome light on. The light in the trunk is not bright enough to see anything.
