Very Good Car. Great Gas. And Is Better Than Most Cars On The Road No Doubt — everything is nice besides i just got in a accident. the hood is barely bent. Nobody even notices that i got in a accident. like no scratches at all. other than that i put in some new Broham spark plugs (cant quite remember the name exactly but its close). Also the accel is very good. Soon to have 17-inch Enkei performance EV5.

Pros

36 MPG after all those miles

Cons

Ford retrofit many replacement parts which increased repair costs. Thanks Ford!!!!

25

World Record Focus — 332,000 miles and still going! Regular maintenance kept the car alive. Many replaced parts however. If it wasn't for a broken air conditioner I would keep the car. I'll be looking for my next car in the spring of this year.

My Bumblebee! — I love this car! It runs great, looks great and is really fun to drive. it also really turns heads! this car is in great shape and is very low maintenance. the only thing i would change would make it a manual and i wish it had a little faster acceleration.

Everything is OK

Cons

Poor music

25

About Ford Focus 1.8 Gia — Its a really nice car. Has great acceleration and breaking, but for full pleasure it is best to have some little more expensive tires. I don`t have some special music in it, but i supose that it would seem much better with some nice musical system. But, I have GIA additional equipment, so it is really nice to drive this car.

Handles amazing, performance is decent.

Cons

Fit and finish is lacking a little.

2001 Ford Focus Zx3 — Car handles pretty amazing for the price, performance stock was lacking but after a few modifications the car has opened up alot. Overall the car isn't too bad. Build quality touch and finish wise could be better but that is to be expected with a Ford. I would buy one again.

Its fast, responcive and a nice sized family car.

This Car Performance Is Brill. — Its a good sized family car and its fast and responcive. Its black so you can hide down dark places and not be seen. There is plenty of space in side when you what to move around. LOL. The seats are leather so there are easy cleaned. I wouldnt ask for a beter car.
