2002 Ford Focus SVT 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6M)


Review

Wow, my supercharged zx3 barely nosed out the stock svt. Thats when i knew i had to have one. This car handles as if you are on a rail, not only that it will pull you away from the curb a lot faster then those eastearn pocket rockets.


Best Features

The handles are supurb. The sound of the engine with an aftermarket intake is a like a formula car.


Worst Features

PUT AN INTAKE ON. Take care of this beauty and it will take car of you!

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


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.

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


Review

I have the 2.0L Zetec/5spd manual, and I must echo everyone else, it doesn't impress you with power. Although I do get 30mpg on the highway regularly going 75mph. It's very spacious inside, well thought out ergonomics, superior driving dynamics, above average stereo, quiet on the highway, and plenty of power items. I don't have much to complain about.


Best Features

Tilt-telescoping steering wheel and height adjustable driver's seat is surprise & delight. It's very well equipped at a low price.


Worst Features

Needs a powertrain that both pleases & gets 30mpg. Soften the volume of the "Snapple" cap turn signal indicator.
