Vehicle2002 Ford Focus ZX5 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Review1yr 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 Features6 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 FeaturesHORRIBLE 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.
