2002 Ford Focus ZTS 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


I bought this car brand new in 2001. I have treated this car good and it has been good to me in return.The door latches had a recall on them because they would stick, and sometimes still do. My valve cover gasket needed replaced at around 83,000 mi. I have around 85,000 mi on it now. Other than that , I can't complain about the car. I live in the Cleveland area , so it has seen it's share of brutal weather. It is not the best car in the world in snow, but it is way better than let's say a Mustang. The stereo system rocks and the car handles tight and has good pick up for a 4 cyl. For the money this car is not bad (the new ones) This was my first brand new car I have owned and I am glad.

Best Features

Tight steering, good stereo system

Worst Features

Fixing the door latch sticking problem. There was a recall, but even after taking it in , the doors still act funny sometimes
