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


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 won’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.

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


Review

The first thing I noticed about my Ford Focus was how solid it feels. I owned an Oldsmobile Achieva previously and loved it. The Focus feels as solid as the Olds. The steering base is small and it takes corners easily. The design inside and out is outstanding! I love this car!


Best Features

The interior design and solid feeling. It is an attractive car from the outside as well.


Worst Features

The gas mileage is the same as my Oldsmobile. Better gas mileage would be an improvement.

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


Review

This car is the best handling I've ever had and the acceleration has long legs. The idle has a problem which the dealer can't repeat. Apart from the horn failing and the cruise control quitting, (loose wire) The dealer has been superb. This car offers a rental car if it needs to be in the shop.


Best Features

Handling, radio,6 speed the hatch is handy have squeezed an armchair in there.


Worst Features

Not much. It does everything I ask of it, lacks nothing. It's pretty loaded for a small car.

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


Review

Best handling/driving car I've ever driven. Not a luxury car by any means, but superior luxury/comfort value to any other car. More comfortable than many larger more expensive cars.


Best Features

Driving/handling, fuel economy, low cost, available leather, sunroof, traction control and side airbags.


Worst Features

Wish I would have known about SVT 5- door, I would have waited for it!
