2000 Ford Focus SE 4dr Wagon


Review

I really want to love this car. It has not left me stranded yet. But since I purchased it with 90K 2 years ago, I have put in nearly $4000 in repairs. None to my negligence. So buyer beware. The first year of the Focus is the most problematic. I will say that it has plenty of power and features for a small car. The wagon has tons of space as well.


Best Features

space, ride height, handling, looks, fuel economy 32mpg highway, 24 city, easy to work on yourself (you'll have to).


Worst Features

Better build quality, smoother transmission, fewer cheap plastic parts,

2000 Ford Focus ZX3 2dr Hatchback


Review

I think is a pretty decent car for the price I paid. I have read the reviews and I agree with some of the problems listed here. The brakes system vibrates and there is a light that comes on when I turn too sharply or hit a bump. I think this is a good car for someone without kids because the two door deal is uncomfortable at times for the ones seating in the back. I have seated in the back, nonetheless, and it is spatious, just kind of a pain to get in and out. Overall it is pretty handy, good design, the 5 speed may be better than the automatic transmition. I owned a Taurus for 2 years and the transmition broke down.


Best Features

design, top speed is awesome, corners and handling is good, the driver seats are high giving you great visibility of the road,


Worst Features

cupholders are located in a retarded position, braking system is not the best feature, 4 door should be standard, better acceleration and fuel economy

I love my focus, i have had it for a few months and it has been nothing but good. I have heard of all the problems but so far none of them. And I think i may have some electrical problems going on with the radio.. Road noise there isnt much. All around perfect car.


Best Features

Roomy truck!!, has a very good sound stock sound system. great leg room in the front not so much in the back. has very comfy seats.


Worst Features

Improve fuel ecomomy it was amazing but seemed to go down hill.

Review

I bought the car in 2007 for my wife and before I went to the Coast Guard, the engine fell apart. Two rebuilds from valve seats dropping and I had enough. After 4,500 dollars rounded I had enough. Please think about this car before you buy. Ford did not recall the valve seats in the cylinder head. Get anything above 06 and that includes all I-4's in Tauris too. 99- 05 are all bad. Just I-4's though. Huntchbacks are fine...


Best Features

Great on gas communting from Denver to Houston, fun and small and great for city life.


Worst Features

Recalling the cylinder heads, better lighting and better engine mounting (2).
