Focusing on the Focus

2002 Ford Focus ZX3 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Review
I love the Focus. I am not a fan of domestic cars, so this should tell you something. The European flavor of the Focus comes through. The handling is excellent for a cheap, FWD car, the ride is pretty decent. Build quality is surprisingly solid for a Ford and no squeaks or rattles in 10,000 miles . I do mainly highway driving, so I get about 28mpg steady. The seats are comfortable. The car is not bad on the highway, but it is kind of buzzy at times. Not nearly as bad as the Dodge Neon, but not as smooth as a Honda. If you love to drive and your pocketbook doesn't allow a BMW (as mine doesn't) the ZX-3 Focus is your small car.
Favorite Features
The handling, upright seating position,CD audio system, price.
Suggested Improvements
More power (160hp would be a good starting point, give the SVT 200hp), make four-wheel disc with ABS standard (just four wheel discs w/o ABS would be OK too)
