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


I've had my 5 speed Focus for a little over a year and I love to drive this car
to work. I'm 6' 2" and I fit well in the driver's seat. The engine, transmission,
steering, suspension and brakes are incredibly capable and satisfying. My
Ford dealer has been great. The only defect was a faint rattle in the rear
which was a vibrating shock absorber, quickly diagnosed and replaced.

Best Features

I love the design and functionality of the dashboard and controls. The sound system rocks. Build quality has been super so far. It's been an incredible value for the money.

Worst Features

While I like the torquey personality of the engine, it could definitely get better gas mileage around town. I'm getting 22 mpg city, 31 mpg highway. Also, the engine is a little noisy at highway cruising speed.
