2003 Ford Focus ZX5 Premium 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Just reaching the 140,000 mile mark, car has been very dependable and easy to maintain, and much MUCH cheaper to maintain than the 99 Civic i had before. My Focus has been used as a commuter car, sees a mix of highway and city miles and all four seasons (cold brutal winters) Had a few minor problems along the way, but it never left me stranded or cost a fortune to fix. I would recommend this car, it would be a great vehicle for a student because its reliable and economical.

Best Features

Handling, shifter feel, seating position, reliability, cost of ownership.

Worst Features

A bit more power would be nice, more powerful seat heaters, and i never did like the dash design.
