2000 Ford Focus ZX3 2dr Hatchback


We bought the Kona edition pretty much
when the Focus first came out in 2000.
We've been very pleased with the
performance and reliability of the
Focus. Yes, there have been a lot of
recalls, but they were minor items that
were done quickly at no cost. The car
is very quick and nimble and very fun
to drive. We've averaged about 22
miles per gallon, which is a bit
disappointing for 125 horsepower, but
it's not too bad. The Focus is an
excellent value for the money.

Best Features

Favorite features would be the handling, responsiveness, and the fun to drive factor.

Worst Features

One improvement Ford needs on the 2 door models is better visibility out the sides when looking over your shoulder for a lane change or parking. It is relatively limited.
