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

Review

For a 2 door, this thing is fun to drive. Pretty good acceleration, and plenty of trunk space once the back seat is folded down. I couldnt believe it when I fit my new 42 inch TV in there and noone else could either! The back seat is useless for passengers unless they have no legs. Very tight quarters back there. Now for the bad. I've never had so much trouble with traction especially on wet roads. I also have less than 60,000 miles and I've already had to have a brand new transmission put in (luckily covered under warranty) and new tie rod ends. Now I'm having issues with what I believe is the air intake control. Finally, this thing eats through tires like crazy

Favorite Features

Trunk space, passanger space, great gas mileage (until it eats up the tires)

Suggested Improvements

Improved traction/cornering, better attention to transmission, severe overhaul of the suspension is needed
