2004 Ford Focus Hatchback ZX3 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

A blast to drive, but build quality a bit suspect in places, totally reliable. Fuel economy is atrocious, I average about 16mpg per US gallon around town and about 25mpg on the highway. My friend drives a Saab 900 turbo with 45 more bhp and manages about 22mpg around town, what gives Ford???!!!


Favorite Features

Driveability!!!


Suggested Improvements

Get the EPA to get their head out of the clouds regarding the "official" fuel consumption figures.

2004 Ford Focus Hatchback ZX3 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I have had my car going on 1 year soon and I love it. I have put a few performance parts on her and she runs and looks like a dream. My husband and I even named her lil' lemon. I have a 5 yr old little boy and between us three there is no comfort problems, she is wonderful on gas, since my husband will drive it every now and then from the AV to Camp Pendleton and it will fit all of his marine gear with NO problems. I LOVE MY CAR!


Favorite Features

she is BRIGHT yellow!! The handleing is incredible. Great gas milage, and allot of backseat room.


Suggested Improvements

NONE!

This car is amazing. I have bought 2 brand new focuses in the past two years. These cars are fun, fast and they look great.

2004 Ford Focus Hatchback ZX3 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

My experience with a ZX3 2000 Ford Focus Hatchback 2 door has been really awesome. I fell in love once my eyes set on her. I have a really bad obsession with this car.


Favorite Features

I like the frame of the car's look. It is very suitable for a single person. Even when there are more people invited in the car, it still have a roomy feel. The stero system works really well as well.


Suggested Improvements

Have new colours such as green and baby blue. Don't put the black plastic strip on the side because when you wash it the hard water builds up and makes it look rather ugly. There shouldn't be a strip on the side of the car even if it is metal because it looks better with nothing there.
