I love this car- one of the best I have owned
By dino3721 on
2002 Ford Focus ZX3 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
I bought my wagon 5-speed with 120K miles on it and it did not have much care before I owned.
I drive about 25K a year.
I had to put some decent money in it but I bought if far below bluebook.
With all that said- I love this car.
It is GREAT mileage.
I get 29.5 in town and 34-36 on the hyway.
I keep it in tiptop shape- but it is fun to drive, rides very well, and can carry about anything.
The only thing I don't like is the seats are not as comfortable as I would like.
I would buy this car again and I am considering buying a 2nd for a spare.
I put alot of miles on a car and I have been very happy with my wagon.
It looks good- however, I have jacked it out a bit.
Mileage is GREAT.
Lots of power.
Stereo sounds good.
Rides really nice.
Can turn on a dime.
I have put money in it but the parts have been very reasonable.
I understand that all cars need parts and care- so I am a little more open than most to doing a little work.
It looks good- even my 16yo nephew told me he wanted one.
Not bad for a station wagon.
Seat comfort is needing to be improved.
Center console lid spring seems to be be a common problem but also an easy fix.
The cubby hole in the dash I wish had a pull out drawer in its place instead of open storage.
I am being picky- only because I love this car.
It has so much power I wish they would have put in a 6th speed for even better mileage.
