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


My Ford Focus ZX3 is a fun to drive
car. It handles excellently and has a
bit of European flair in its hatchback
design. I can also load all kinds of
stuff in it. However the reliability is
sketchy.Numerous recalls, recalls that
were fixed seem to have the same
problem creep up again(Battery cable
was changed only to melt again). The
brand new ones now come with 10/100,000
Powertrain warranty, but I wish mine
had that because I think the new ones
have the bugs worked out while mine
still has the bugs. A shame since this
car is truely a joy to drive and it's
versitility is great!
