2001 Ford Focus SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


I purchased the car used, with 22500
miles on the odometer. I've only added
4000 miles since, but the car has had
no problems. No stalling, no
hesitation, no problems. My SE has the
Zetec engine. I know other people have
had problems, so maybe they have
the "regular" 2.0L engine. The car's
ride is firm, but far from harsh.
Handling is superb, with steering that
is super-sharp...maybe TOO sharp (it
responds so quickly that it can feel
jerky at times). I've averaged up to
31-mpg with this car (it routinely gets
27-mpg), so I don't know why others are
getting such low figures...must be that
heavy right foot. :-)

Best Features

Zetec engine, sharp handling, good ride, outstanding interior space, uniquely attractive exterior and interior designs, value priced, reliable.

Worst Features

Brighter dash lights, less rattles, lumbar support adjustments for the front seats, that's about it.
