2003 Ford Focus ZX3 Premium 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Review

This car is a nice looking car but it seems that every 1000 miles or so something breaks down on it. At 600 yes 600 miles i needed a new trans. at 1500 i needed a new electrical system and to this day it still isnt fixed. The handling in the snow sucks. I would not buy another one of these ever again!!!!

2003 Ford Focus ZX5 Comfort 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Review

The Focus ZX5 is an excellent inexpensive alternative to large or fuel inneficient vehicles. The focus is ergonomically built from the ground up, leaving you with a positive "big-car- like" sensation all around. Ford credit was able to offer a cahs back incentive with ZERO down. Great job!

2003 Ford Focus SE Comfort 4dr Sedan w/Zetec (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Review

I've had my Focus for about 6 weeks and am disappointed about only one thing: The fuel economy is much worse than I thought it would be. I traded in a 1997 Escort that still got about 375-400 miles out of a tank of gas. I'm lucky to get 325 out of the Focus, and that's with a lot of highway driving. On the positive side, the sound system and creature comforts a nice. It's a fun ride.

2003 Ford Focus ZTW 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl 4A)

Review

The Ford Focus ZTW 4dr wagon is the best buy for the money. It comes standard with side airbags, keyless entry, CD player, power windows and side mirrors all for way under $20,000. We have only had the car for a week but we love the ride, the sleekness and most of all the fuel efficiency and it looks great too.

2003 Ford Focus ZX3 Premium 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Review

This car is a fine auto, superb handling and ride. Great interior for my 6 ft frame with plenty of space for other riders and luggage. Terrific engine producing quick response and good highway speeds without effort. Very good mileage both around town and highway driving.The new edge design with a europian flair is outstanding. An overall excellent value for the price.

2003 Ford Focus SVT 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6M)

Review

I've owned this car for 5 months. From the first week it has been in the shop SIX yes 6 times for the same problem. The "check Engine" light keeps coming on then goes off then comes back on!!!!! The battery light goes on and off. The traction assist light goes on/off, on/off. Hey, Ford techs do you ever check the wiring harnesses before putting them into the cars???????? Even the horns worked when "THEY" wanted to.......

Love this Car

2003 Ford Focus LX 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Review

As a 6'1 not so small person, I find the focus extremely comfortable and easy to drive. Ford definitaly has a winner with this car. Solid interior components and doors make you feel safe, accelerates well even without the zetec engine and the gas mileage is great. The high seat backs are nice because i dont feel like im going to get a whiplash if something happens like i do in my old 93 thunderbird with lower seat backs. Only con is that the seat doesnt really tilt up so long legs may fatuige if the seat isnt perfectly positioned. Mirrors are positioned well and stereo is well positioned buttons- wise.
