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


Review

Considering the price and class of vehicle it was an excellent choice, would buy it again. Never imagined I could be so pleased with an entry level car. Also happy with my '03 Lincoln LS V8.


Favorite Features

Extremely handy around town, parking, getting in & out plus entirely at home on the Interstate.


Suggested Improvements

More movement in steering wheel up- down & in-out adjustment.

2002 Ford Focus Hatchback 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.


Favorite Features

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


Suggested Improvements

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

2002 Ford Focus Hatchback 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.


Favorite Features

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


Suggested Improvements

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

Review

After 22,000 miles I finally admit to myself: I am in love with this car. At first I was I was a little disappointed with the gas mileage. 25 miles / gallon on highway is not that much. But this is getting better as the car gets more experienced. In average over 22,000 miles the car is at 27,5 miles / gallon now tendency rising. The reliability was not an issue. All I had to do was to change the oil every 5000 miles. But the best about this car is the ride. Smooth. The best car I ever had. Excellent cornering speed, quiet ride, and macho acceleration if needed. It is a small car, but for me: long commute, usually alone, this is the car.


Favorite Features

Smooth and quiet ride, good cornering.
