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


Review

I have had no problems with this
vehicle and am pleased with its
performance. It has an excellent sound
system, and an appealing interior
design.


Best Features

It handles well, is fun to drive, and the trunk space is surprisingly large. Fuel economy is excellent.


Worst Features

Rear window visibility could be improved, and I prefer to lock my own doors without being second-quessed by my car.

2002 Ford Focus SVT 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6M)


Review

Wow, my supercharged zx3 barely nosed
out the stock svt. Thats when i knew i
had to have one. This car handles as if
you are on a rail, not only that it
will pull you away from the curb a lot
faster then those eastearn pocket
rockets.


Best Features

The handles are supurb. The sound of the engine with an aftermarket intake is a like a formula car.


Worst Features

PUT AN INTAKE ON. Take care of this beauty and it will take car of you!

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


Review

My 2002 Focus SE-Sport sedan is a
practical, spacious and enjoyable car.
However, Ford did not "push the
envelope" when delivering this car in
2000. The fit and finish are probably
the biggest problem: materials are of
ok quality but various parts are not
well adjusted. The Ztec engine provides
sufficient power for this class but
it's too noisy and has low fuel
efficiency considering it's only a 2.0
litre. Still, I enjoy my Focus very
much and am looking forward to the next
generation due to appear later this
year.


Best Features

Overall handling VS comfort Dashboard is simple and efficient Lots of headroom front and rear big trunk Telescopic steering wheel Good sound system It's a good looking car!


Worst Features

If Ford can make this car quieter, more fuel-efficient and increase the fit/finish quality, then they will have a sure winner.

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


Review

I have the 2.0L Zetec/5spd manual, and
I must echo everyone else, it doesn't
impress you with power. Although I do
get 30mpg on the highway regularly
going 75mph. It's very spacious
inside, well thought out ergonomics,
superior driving dynamics, above
average stereo, quiet on the highway,
and plenty of power items. I don't
have much to complain about.


Best Features

Tilt-telescoping steering wheel and height adjustable driver's seat is surprise & delight. It's very well equipped at a low price.


Worst Features

Needs a powertrain that both pleases & gets 30mpg. Soften the volume of the "Snapple" cap turn signal indicator.
