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


I love the Focus. I am not a fan of
domestic cars, so this should tell you

FWD car, the ride is pretty decent.
Build quality is surprisingly solid for
a Ford and no squeaks or rattles in
10,000 miles . I do mainly highway

Best Features

The handling, upright seating position,CD audio system, price.

Worst Features

More power (160hp would be a good starting point, give the SVT 200hp), make four-wheel disc with ABS standard (just four wheel discs w/o ABS would be OK too)
