Great City Car!
By Bob on
2003 Ford Focus ZX3 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Tight car! Solid, no rattles, more than adequate power and handles well! Love it as city runabout, easy entry, exit, parking and great visibility all around. Hatchback can carry BIG loads, like a mini SUV! Over 30k miles, no problems yet. Have a loaded automatic, sunroof and all extras yet it still doesn't have a rattle it - wife loves it too - Just leave the Town Car in the garage and use the Focus in the city!
Hatchback! Easily carries large and TALL loads - it's very convenient as shopper, airport runner and hauler.
MPH not that good, <23 originally in city using air. Put in M&H air filter and it increased significantly to >26. Ford should be able to get this little and relatively light car to get over 30+ in the city and still keep it as responsive as it is.
