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


Bought it w/ about 87k on it. 1st thing to replace it was the radio, couldn't read very well w/ the lines through it. Trunk latch doesn't work properly. To close the trunk I have to pull the safety lever in the trunk. It had fairly new tires on it when I bought it, they are already bald 7k miles later. A dome light towards the rear seats would be Nice, @night I cant see a thing back there. I get about 22 mpg all town. It would be Nice to put the rear seats down from the car, not just the trunk. The ignition cyl. Went out, Ford charged $270! Rip off. Only the drivers door has a keyhole and when its colder than 32 degrees the keyhole freezes and u cant get the key in, or turn it. I've tried many options

Best Features

zippy, fun to drive, decent trunk space, gets 31mpg on hwy.

Worst Features

Fix the trunk latch, radio, put a light towards the rear seats, tires don't need to wear out that quick. Put in a ignition cylinder that works, put a keyhole on passengers door and design key hole so water wont freeze in it. I've tried different lubes, penetrators, and lock deicers w/ no real solution
