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

Review

We have had this car since it was new and now we have 188k on it and all I have to say it has been super reliable and flawless. The only problem early on were the front sway links, but mechanically our focus has been and still is remarkably reliable. The trans and engine is original and has never been serviced for nothing. We also have never had a check engine light come on and it passes the emissions test every time with flying colors. Our Focus also doesn't burn a drop of oil. I don't know why everyone else has had the problems they have with their Focus but my experience has been very positive. Driving this car 300k miles doesn't seem like a fantasy anymore.

Favorite Features

My favorite features is are the six disc changer, the adjustable drivers seat, and the AC, which which cools better then my Malibu. The way this car drives and handles is another favorite of mine.

Suggested Improvements

The sway bar links, wiper relay, rear trunk lock, door handles have been the only problem spots.
