2003 Ford Focus ZX3 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


This car has been great. 63,000 miles (owned since new) and the engine has yet to sputter with hesitation. Average low 30's mpg and the highest I've got so far is 41mpg from San Diego to San Jose. More than adequate power and it has never had one problem!

Best Features

It can haul a lot of cargo inside, quiet and smooth engine, decently quick acceleration, great MPG, and so far perfectly reliable, all with the PZEV rating!

Worst Features

The shift indicator light is annoying. I know when to shift. ABS as standard would be nice.
