2002 Ford Focus 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.

2002 Ford Focus ZX3 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

High stability and spacious interior
make Focus considerably better than
competition. Fuel economy is not its
better side but American market doesn't
care about that much.


Best Features

Real fun and reliable car to drive. I have it for 2 years and had no problems at all.


Worst Features

Little bit more power would make Focus really serious small car and competitors like Honda Civic wouldn't stand a chance.

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


Review

I am a dealer and bought my Focus the
year they came out so I have no one to
blame but me for buying it. First off
it is very noisy and the belt squeaks
every time i start it. The doors lock
while the motor is running(Not good
with kids in the car seats) and last
but not least 200 miles to the tank!
That is horrible considering it is
rated in the 30's on highway. I am a
sales manager at Honda now and
everytime I look at it i just want to
set it on fire and call my agent.
buyer be ware.

2002 Ford Focus ZX3 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Considering the price and class of
vehicle it was an excellent choice,
would buy it again. Never imagined I
could be so pleased with an entry
level car. Also happy with my '03
Lincoln LS V8.


Best Features

Extremely handy around town, parking, getting in & out plus entirely at home on the Interstate.


Worst Features

More movement in steering wheel up- down & in-out adjustment.
