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

Review

I bought this car new and it is just as much fun to drive over 3 years later. I have the Zetec engine, it has lots of pep and I get 25 mpg overall and that's with over 20 stop lights between home and work. The original Firestone tires were...well, junk, and after lots effort on the dealership's part, I gave up and replaced them with Pirelli tires at 8000 miles. The back seat is roomier than I expected and the front is very comfortable. Huge trunk great for travel.I love this car!

Best Features

Zippy, great handling and fun to drive. Love the 6 CD stereo.I used to work in a collision center and I saw several people with a demolished Focus. These cars absorb the impact, allowing the driver to walk away unhurt.

Worst Features

Irritating turn signal sound. Ugly bug- eye headlights-not present in later models.Side and rear poor visibility. Better tires.
