2002 Ford Focus ZX5 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


After purchase from private party I changed out plugs and wires, oil (5-20), replaced damaged side mirror and antenna. The 16" low profiles with alloys corners like a dream. Nice pick up with the 16 valve zetec 130 pony 2.0 liter fuel injected grinder. 6 CD changer and no nonsense dash layout provides a solid experience. I'm up to 28 plus mpg driving 11 miles one way to work. Nice quiet ride and tight suspension. Access to oil filter is difficult for oil changes. All in all a great value for the money.

Best Features

Remote and dash pushbutton hatch release, handling, 6 CD, fit and finish, tilt/telescope steering wheel, performance, quiet ride, 5 seat capacity, removable cup holders go in the dishwasher, well designed lighting sequence on start and shut down.

Worst Features

Higher mpg's or all electric for urban use. Turbo injected diesel with 50 mpg would be great. I like this car very much and recommend the ZX5 as an all around excellent choice. Holds two golf bags easily with fold down split back seats.
