Review

YOU HAVE TO BE READY TO $PEND MONEY ON MAINTAINANCE BECAUSE IT STARTS TO BREAKDOWN ONLY AT 20K MILES!!! SO OVER ALL....IT'S NOT A GOOD CAR TO HAVE IF YOU'RE ON LIMITED BUDGET NOR BUSY LIFESTYLE BECUASE YOU WILL SPEND MORE TIME IN THE SERVICE DEPT RATHER THAN GOING ABOUT WITH YOUR LIFE!

Buy This Car!

Vehicle

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

Review

Moving from a 300M to the Focus SE was scary, but once I drove this car I loved it!. The best handling of any car I have driven. Cruises around 75-80, and gets 28-30 mpg.

So far so good
By Sgomez on 12/25/02 00:00 AM (PST)

Vehicle

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

Review

The car is very well equipped for the money. Lots of space and nice features everywhere. Power is modest but still the car is fun to drive due to great dynamics. Fuel economy is improving with time. Now its at 23 mpg. So far the only problems experienced is a squicky noise in the rear that I hope the dealership will take care of in the 5K service. The front wheels are always dirty due to fast fading brake pads, but so far the braking power has been adequate and enough. There is storage space everywhere in the cabin. The car feels much larger than it is. Focus is a very good car that Ford consciously failed to make a great car. Only they know why.

Disapointed
By Bubba5 on 12/14/02 00:00 AM (PST)

Vehicle

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

Review

Thought the gas mileage would be better...I average 20 mpg...the driver's seat is terribly uncomfortable after 20 minutes of driving...I had to take it to ford to replace the seat cover after 10,000 miles...the metal frame cut through the cover...maybe I just got a bad seat cause other reviewers seem to like these seats...automatic is sluggish...needs more power and better brakes

Yep, it's great!

Vehicle

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

Review

In 5 months we put just over 12,000 miles on our Focus ZX3. This is an outstanding car. So far not had a single problem. Gas milage is outstanding. Sometimes just over 30 miles to the gallon. The driving position is excellent, trunk capacity astounding, build quality very good, the tilt/telescoping fat leather steering wheel exceptional and the Focus is a blast to drive. It has power windows, mirrors and even remote door locks and trunk release. We bought over the internet for $2500.-- off the sticker.It was worth it not to have to deal with sleazy salespeople, who don't have a clue about the product they are selling.

The best entry compact vehicle at a good price. Offers everything Toyota can without unreasonably increasing the price.
