2002 Ford Focus SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
This car has excellent handling. I am not a car person so my primary reason for purchasing was price and gas mileage. The inside of the car is a little small. Passengers in the back seat have to scrunch up and it would not be good for long car rides with four people. This car needs new tires constantly. I am lucky to get 15k out of a tire. I mean they are completely bald. I have had alignment checked no problems. I rotate the tires but barely can do it twice before I need new ones. I been through 7 full sets of tires in 5 years. The tires are supposed to get 50-75K and it isn't even close. I also had to have the struts front and back all replaced by 50K.
The car looks nice. It has a sporty feel to it.
The stereo sometimes shuts off and I have to push the faceplate back and it starts again. My biggest complaint is the tires. Every place I go to says the same thing focuses are terrible on tires. For larger folks seatbelts are small. My boyfriend was choked by his at 200 lbs needed an extension.
