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


I bought this car because I could get more features and a bigger engine for some $3000 less than I would have paid for a Toyota Celica. Now, five years and some $5000 more than the cost of the average Celica over this time, all I can say is it was a bad choice. Pretty much all that could go wrong did, coolant system twice, CD chager twice, A/C twice, clutch, thermostat, power windows, brakes need constant work, windshield sealant, trunk bounces back every other time, noisy. It's the last Ford I'll ever own. About a year ago I quit putting money into it, all I do is maintenance. Since then the CD changer and the driver's side window have kicked it, we now own two Toyotas. This one is errand car.

Best Features

Gas mileage. Very roomy for a small car.

Worst Features

Better quality overall. No wonder Honda and Toyota's numbers go up yearly despite higher prices, lower rebates, and far less financing incentives.
