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


This was the first car I ever bought. I researched it and got a fairly decent deal. However I've had a lot of mechanical problems with it. It was at the dealer for a week cause it wouldn't start. And more recently it hss taken to not starting and sporadically stalling. I took it to 1 dealer and they claimed the stalling was from a faulty fuel pump and fixed it under warranty. Two weeks later it was still stalling and I took it to another dealer, because I moved, and it's been there for over a month and they have no clue what's wrong with it. A real mind boggler they said. I've spent a fortune in rental and repairs and its still broken. All I can say is I'm never buying Ford again!

Best Features

I like the layout of the interior. And there's plenty of room in the car.

Worst Features

The radio buttons stick and half don't work. So I hope they fixed the radio. And if they could make the car so that it was reliable in starting and wouldn't stall.. that would be great.
