2002 Ford Focus Sedan ZTS 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I am a dealer and bought my Focus the
year they came out so I have no one to
blame but me for buying it. First off
it is very noisy and the belt squeaks
every time i start it. The doors lock
while the motor is running(Not good
with kids in the car seats) and last
but not least 200 miles to the tank!
That is horrible considering it is
rated in the 30's on highway. I am a
sales manager at Honda now and
everytime I look at it i just want to
set it on fire and call my agent.
buyer be ware.

2002 Ford Focus Sedan SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I have had no problems with this
vehicle and am pleased with its
performance. It has an excellent sound
system, and an appealing interior
design.


Best Features

It handles well, is fun to drive, and the trunk space is surprisingly large. Fuel economy is excellent.


Worst Features

Rear window visibility could be improved, and I prefer to lock my own doors without being second-quessed by my car.

Review

My 2002 Focus SE-Sport sedan is a
practical, spacious and enjoyable car.
However, Ford did not "push the
envelope" when delivering this car in
2000. The fit and finish are probably
the biggest problem: materials are of
ok quality but various parts are not
well adjusted. The Ztec engine provides
sufficient power for this class but
it's too noisy and has low fuel
efficiency considering it's only a 2.0
litre. Still, I enjoy my Focus very
much and am looking forward to the next
generation due to appear later this
year.


Best Features

Overall handling VS comfort Dashboard is simple and efficient Lots of headroom front and rear big trunk Telescopic steering wheel Good sound system It's a good looking car!


Worst Features

If Ford can make this car quieter, more fuel-efficient and increase the fit/finish quality, then they will have a sure winner.

Review

I have owned my focus for about 8
months and I have to say that it is
the best car I have ever owned. It may
not be a $35,000 turbo all-wheel drive
Audi or Subaru but for $10,000 it is a
great car. Mine is the limited edition
MACH audio, and the sound system is
awesome! It has HID headlights and the
interior is very comfortable, even for
a 6'3" person. I have had very little
go wrong in 20,000 miles with this
car. The biggest thing was.....O ya,
nothing!! It does need new tires, but
I am hard on them and they do have
32,000 miles on them. So if you want a
reliable, well built car that wonÂ’t
cause you to file bankruptcy, the
Focus if for you!


Best Features

Seat height adjuster, Radio, Telescoping Steering wheel, sunroof, reliable!


Worst Features

Car is a little sluggish on the bottom end.
