2003 Ford Focus ZTW 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


This car gets great gas mileage but has cost me a fortune in tires. I bought the ZTW focus 2.0l 5sp wagon new and it no has 88,000 mi on it. I get no more than 15,000 mi out of a set of 15" tires whether cheap or expensive (back have gotten as little a 10K). Called Ford up they said "never heard of that before" but yet supplies my dealer w/ alignment kits to try and cure. Struts blew at 10k . On 3rd set of rear seat belts. Rear latch changed under recall- new latch worse-latch sometimes opens when hit bump-things fall out. Can no longer read LCD #s on blaupunct radio. Dashboard different color than rest of plastics. ps pump leak at 30k.

Best Features

About 36mpg if careful-seats are pretty comfy - not bad looking for a wagon -5 spd. - ok storage - Carried the 8' lumber(both inside and out)to rework my deck. Peppy

Worst Features

Fix tire issue. Backend way too light for driving in snow- rear whips around easy even w studs. safety belts should hold up better. radio (why do people feel everything has to be digital it is not any faster on a radio or oven for that matter)
