Great little car

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


This is my second Focus. I did have another 2003 Focus LX base model. That one had transmission problems and this one does not. I purchased it with 130k and now has 143k. I have enjoyed this car, only minor problems with it. It handles great, stops on a dime, very reliable and very roomy. Decent gas mileage..without A/C 28-29 mpg, with A/C..24-25 mpg, and that's with regular oil changes and adding B-12 to the fuel tank. Very few complaints, trunk doesn't want to latch when shut after being opened with the key fob or trunk button, but works correctly with the key.

Best Features

The stereo system, keyless entry

Worst Features

Make the steering wheel as large as other vehicles...steering wheel cover too big for the wheel, trunk latch actuator.
