The 2000 Focus Zx3 —

Where can I start? The 2000 Focus is a complete solid car that can bring joy to anybody. First, the performance: The 2.0 litre, 4 cylinder, DOHC, Zetec engine produces 135 BHP and is fairly bullet proof, it will last for a long time. My Focus has done around 180,000 miles on all origional parts, except for gaskets and other parts that need replaced every couple of thousand of miles. Pretty good for a ten year old car! The engine is completely adaquate enough for everyday use and the occasional time when you feel like going fast. Despite this, the engine could do with just a tiny bit more power to add to the sportyness of the Focus. However, when you hit the GO pedal and you let the revs get up high, you will hear the sweet sound of the engine. It is phenominal. The brakes on the Focus are unbelievably brilliant. All you need to do is tap the brake pedal and you stop very quickly. When you stop, put your face back where it belongs and keep going. The brakes stop you quick when you need it and slows you down when you need it. The stopping power is phenominal considering the brakes at the front are about 1 foot in diameter and the rears are drums. The 2000 Focus is well built all round. It will keep its self composed for many years. I've recently replaced the suspension all round and the front rotors just to keep it as safe as it possibly can. After 10 years, the suspension is pretty soft instead of hard. Now that the replacements are on, the Focus sits about 2 inches higher than it did with the sagging, old ones on there. There was nothing wrong with the brakes, just replaced them so I know its safe and they'll last another life time. After 10 years though, the Air Conditioning Compressor is squeaking now, but from frequent use for 10 straight years, it is expected to happen, nothing can last forever. The car does not rattle, bang or anything else. The Focus looks, to me anyway, really good. I like the way the rear lights are situated up high, not only to look more interesting, but so that they are more visible to the car following you. The side of the Focus had very interesting lines and you could spend hours looking around it looking at all the tiny curves, bends, and lines on it. The large headlights look good aswell as lighting up the road amazingly. The interior design is pure and also very interesting. The lines of the dask is unique and is oddly good looking. The gauges are very large and easy to read as well as being accutare. The gauges do need a readout for battery life though. Apart from that, they are brilliant. The way the seats feel are unbelievably comfortable. They hold you well when you are moving down the road. One fo the best things about the Focus is that is is so cheap to run. $20.00 of fuel today will easily last you up to 2 weeks (depending on how you use it, of course). The Focus is incredibally easy to maintain. It will last you a while when you treat it right. This car is a "hatchback", but it behaves as a sports car. It is really sporty to drive and it makes you forget that you are driving a hatchback. It shouldn't be called a hatchback; it should be called a "Sports Coupe". To sum it all up, the 2000 Ford Focus ZX3 is one of the best cars out there today and gives you a feeling of joy that is unique in every way.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Cheap, Sporty, Lasts forever

Cons: Ummm, hold on... Let me think... Needs about 10 more horse power and a better sounding horn. Thats about it.

Ford Focus Ghia Estate 1.8tdi — This is my first Ghia model and the Air-con' was much appreciated the first summer. It broke last summer, but that's been the only fault so far. Great economy and loads of room inside. Not my choice of styling or colour, but perfectly good for an everyday jack of all trades

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Space & Economy

Cons: The colour - silver would have been better than green.

A Good, Inexpensive And Well Built Car, If You Get The Zetec Se. — The car handles very well, it has been very reliable and gets incredible gas mileage. You can't beat it in snow, and it handles in wet and very wet conditions quite well. The interior is very spacious, and the trunk is absolutely cavernous. This is a great car for trips, and a great car for around town. My next car will also be a focus.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It is a tank.

Cons: The interior is kind of tacky.

2000 Ford Focus Se (4-door Sedan) — Great city/ commuting car. Acceleration was adequate with the 2 liter/ 16 valve Zetec engine (probably would have been a bit quicker if it weren't an automatic, but it handled well. Average gas mileage (24 mpg with mixed driving.) Reliable powertrain. Fun to drive... Good little car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good handling, Reliable

Cons: Fuel mileage, Acceleration
