RIP 2001 Focus
By Kat on


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


I bought this car brand new in September 2001. It has been a very dependable car. Replaced the fuel pump once under the recall, had both back window gears replaced. Took great care of it. The engine blew up last week with nearly 144,000 miles on her. Due to depreciation it's not worth putting a new engine in her so I've moved up to a 2007 Focus. The 2001 was a wonderful vehicle: fun to drive and fuel efficient before fuel efficiency was cool. I'm going to miss my blue beastie.

Best Features

Fuel efficient, style, comfort, good sound system.

Worst Features

Wish the would put the cup holders in a better location. Even on the 2007 they're in a bugger of a spot.
