Popular Car And Has Great Longevity. — My wife and I drive this car to do our errands. Good gas mileage in town. Decent ride and adequate room for us and our things. This is a relatively low mileage car. Handles well. Good car to hand down to a grandchild.

Pros

interior styling, handling, cargo space with seats folded, fuel economy (average 32MPG), durability, nice sporty steering wheel

Cons

the decorative center caps on the wheels don't seem to survive tire installations (cost less than $5 a piece

Great Fun Car With Good Fuel Economy — I had the S2 version of the ZX3 so it had European suspension. This was a great car with good handling, fun to drive, and a nice interior. It seems to be durable as my cousin now drives this car and it has about 150K miles with no issues despite being hit by a truck and swiped by a semi on seperate occaisons.

Its No Mustang, But At Least Im In The Ford Club Now Haha — Its great. It handles very nice, doesn't lean so I can go faster around corn...I mean its safer? Yeah.. Thats what I mean. Its got more power than Im used to, and now I actually feel like I can get out of the way if I needed to instead of putt-putt-putt hope I don't get hit

Handling, nice to drive and look at.

Cons

Go buy one already.

Ages Very Well. — Great car overall, very little to go wrong. If anything does go wrong it's very easy to do your own repairs. Parts are easily got. The build quality is excellent, and the handling is great in corners and twisty roads. The low engine models are underpowered. The 1.6/1.8 models onwards are the models to go for. This is a euro spec focus.

Pros

reliable, easy to keep it happy ;-)

Cons

electronics... sometimes, it's better to stick to good 'ol mechanics...

Overall A Good, Reliable Car. Decent Enough Power And Space (talking Europe Here!) — performance - acc. is ok (except for the electronics), braking ok, handling super quality - somewhat sluggish in some parts, but overall good German quality appearance - hey, this car was built in 2001 - so nothing really fancy now... but still somewhat cool... cost - hm, could have better fuel mileage and lower costs for inspections... but ok fun factor - yeah, if you don't care about fuel prices... or if you want to get new tires ;-)

Loved It And Lived It. — I posted a pretty bad picture of my focus, but anyways haha Looks great when cleaned! You can fit more people in the car than you would assume! Lots of trunk space. This thing is a tank and never let me down. I put over 60,000km on it in my first 11 months with this thing. Drove it all through highschool and in this picture it has approx. 130,000km (april 2010)

Pros

I love the sound of the stock speakers, and the fact I can rely on this little car to get me where I'm going.

Cons

I had a few annoying sounds. One is a clunk that I think is a strut mount. I have had some problems with idling too low and satlling, but that was an easy fix. It's good to use a gas additive once in a while. I sometimes have a leak when I'm parked a certain way, especially on grass. The passenger floor sometimes gets soaked. I cant find any leak.

She's Fast, Economical, Reliable, Good Looking, Agile, Has Nice Curves And Sometimes Moody. — I would have to say that I'm pretty happy with this little car. It gets about 30 MPG sometimes a little more, sometimes less. It depends on my driving style that week. She's become my daily driver. I still have my Ranger too, but the focus is a lot better on gas.

Pros

Looks; Driving; Big luggage; Ergonomics

Cons

Handling, rear a bit loose; Choose for the TDCI, if you find one cheap

115

What You See Is What You Get... Cool, Fun And Pleasure — Good power but not excelent. Good economy but not excelent. Handling could be better... it's better to put some bags of potatoes in the back! I love the looks and the overall built quality is very good, with some minor downsides. But the best is the Ford's driving... dynamic, direct, responsive. Some kind of stiff to some people but I like it. I didn't drive yet the TDCI but people say that's much better engine than this one... and more expensive too...
