2002 Ford Focus ZX5 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


This is an agency car that I drive on
trips of at least an hour each way. I
have never driven a car with a more
uncomfortable driving position. I am
by no means unusually tall or short
(5'9"), yet there is no way to position
the seat where I can comfortably reach
the steering wheel without having my
knees at my throat. The car has
excellent handling and a great stereo,
but every time I get out of the car I
feel like I need to see a massage
therapist. Unless you are prepared to
sit in the engine, I would strongly
discourage purchasing this car. And
that's not even taking into account
being the second-ugliest vehicle on the
road today!

Best Features

Stereo system, handling.

Worst Features

Seating, styling (Hey I can dream, right?)
