2002 Ford Focus Sedan ZTS 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I bought my zts about 2 years ago and am
still pretty happy with it. If you are
looking for a cheap car, this is a great
option. Overall it is still a nice car.
One of my rim caps fell off ($20). My
dealership didn't send me my extended
warranty papers and when I went to my
dealership I got the run around. My
front passenger speaker is blown and my
stereo sometimes (rarely, only 3 times
in the 2 years I've had it) shuts off
when pushing the buttons in the middle
where it disconnects. The center console
was not made well and doesn't latch well
anymore. I'm thinking about taking my
car in to fix some of these problems but
not looking forward to it.


Best Features

Ability to make tight turns. Comfortable chairs. Plenty of bang for the buck.


Worst Features

Put a little more quality into the brakes and stereo speakers. Could use a better motor, which they improved on the new models this year. Too much road noise.

2002 Ford Focus Sedan ZTS 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Our 2002 Focus ZTS is as fun to drive
as they say it is! It corners great
and has fairly good acceleration. This
has been a great car for a family of
4. We have two young kids and they fit
well, including taking one of their
Grandmothers with us at times. The
trunk is surprisingly roomy and holds
enough luggage for a week long road
trip. We have had no mechanical
problems and only one repair due to a
missing retainer on the inner wheel
well trim.


Best Features

Height Adjustable Seat and Tilt/Telescoping steering wheel. I am 6' 6" and my wife is 5' 2", but because of these two features this car fits us both. I also like the roominess, we have seated 5 persons several times and comfortable enough for short drives.


Worst Features

Consider the newer 2.3L PZEV engine for additional power in the hills and better fuel economy if you live in the mountains.

2002 Ford Focus Sedan ZTS 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I had hoped by giving Ford a couple of
years to get it right they would
address there quality issues. I will
not buy a another Ford product unless
there is >30% price advantage over
competing vehicles. If you buy your
vehicle get a Civic at least it is
still worth something after 3 years.
When are they going to learn that
without producing quality products the
consumer will not return.


Worst Features

How about a car that doesn't have the fuel pump turn off when making a hard right turn.
