Nickle and Dimed to Death
By YellowBananaZX3 on


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


I enjoyed my Ford Focus ZX3, but... It
has been in the shop every month, for
unscheduled repairs, for the last 4
months (three additional times during
the year prior). It has left me
stranded twice (once in a bad part of
detroit). It has proven too unreliable
in the long run. I was hoping for 160k
like I got in my 91 Ford Escort GT, but
it looks like I won't make it past 65k
in the focus. This is my last ford
purchase, ever.

It has just proven too unreliable, and
Ford customer service is simply awful.

Best Features

Fun! I love the way the car drives, interior ergonomics and styling. But...

Worst Features

Quality. Great car but they forgot durability, dependability, reliability. oops, I hope they find that otherwise I fear it is curtains for Ford.
