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


Wrong and right with this car. I have had this car for 4 years now and I have suffered through all of the recalls. It left me stranded on three separate occasions due to recalls. The ignition cylinder, the fuel pump, and the topper - the wiring system on the battery. This caught fire while I was riding down the road. I also have had tons of enjoyment from driving this car. It has some pep for its size (though not as much as the SVT Focus). It can be parked in tight places and is pretty efficient when it comes to gas. I have had tons of problems with the door panels as well. The seatbelt thing always falls off. The ZX3 doesn't do anything half way. It is either great or pure junk.

Best Features

Handling, dashboard design, room, cargo space.

Worst Features

More dependability. This car had more recalls than I can remember any other car having. I guess there are tons of problems in the early years on just about all cars though.
