Ford Focus is fun, but unreliable
By Thomas Dolgin on


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


The Focus ZX3 Power Premium is a great
car. It is fun to drive. The engine
could use some more power, especially
with an automatic and during the
summer when the air conditioning is
on. Some minor defects are covered by
the manufacturer and dealership, but
are still a pain to deal with. There
are too many defects and problems that
are just annoying.

Best Features

The sunroof is great. The 16" alloy wheels give the car a sporty look. The front end of the car sticks out too much I think.

Worst Features

The engine needs some more power. the torque provided seems pretty good. I used to have a 1997 Jetta GT, and it was an automatic also. The power was about the same if I used regular fuel. If the focus has plus fuel, then it would be a lot quicker.
