Great on gas, bad in snow.
By ScottK. on


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


I had my Focus for one year and put on 15k. I didn't have any mechanical issues at all. The car was great on gas, about 25-36mph, city/highway. The car was unstable at highway speeds in snow even though it had traction control. I crashed the car in snowy conditions and was able to walk away with only 2 small scratches. I'd get another one, but wouldn't drive it long distances in poor winter weather.

Best Features

Great gas mileage! Lots of cargo room for a small car.

Worst Features

Very unstable in poor winter weather at higher speeds compared with heavier cars.
