2001 Ford Focus ZX3 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Just sold my ZX3 after 7 years, 170,000 miles. Fun, fun car to ride; however, it has truly been unreliable pretty much from day one. Calipers, fuel pump, catalatyic converter, wheel bearings; $500 dollar repairs 5 months in a row; escape a few months and starts all over again; finally sold. When running (second to none) on fun factor but not without cost.

Best Features

High commanding driving position (visibility); smooth 5-speed manual transmission, yes something reliable (the engine Z-tech) and great stereo system. Oh incredible handling too! Again fun car (just not reliable).

Worst Features

Ford improving the overall quality of motorcraft parts and doing something about reliability issues!
