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


I have driven over 25k miles in my ZTS.
Problems so far included: squeaky dash
replaced at 5k, squeaky rear brakes
replaced at 17k, broken alternator at
17k, seized rear wheel bearing at 23k.
Current problem is with too low idle -
engine almost died a few times.
Persistent problem is weak engine in
hot-dry weather.

Best Features

Handling is very good. I like the interior and exterior look.

Worst Features

Better quality. Larger range of seat movement - I am 6'4" and cannot find really comfortable seating position. More sesponsive engine.
