Great Car, Dependable And Fun To Drive — Love this car and owned it since 2002. Meets all my needs in a commuter car, I only wish I would have gone with the SVT model for the extra power (130HP vs 170HP), other than that it's been a great car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Dependable and sporty to drive

Cons: Paint didn't hold up well over the years, roof started to show wear but expected for a 13 year car, thinking about wrapping the top since my last paint job didn't last more than 2 years before showing wear from the sun (Maaco Special).

2000 Ford Focus Review
Early 2000s Southern Spain and Im driving my Dads 2.0 Ghia saloon. Fast. What a great little combo; smooth empty roads, twisting and turning through spectacular countryside. Who would have thunk that the old mans wheels would have such a free spinning engine, spot on handling and a snicketty snick snick snick gearbox?? Ok it wasnt like the hot hatches of my youth, but it was a fantastic experience and changed my perspective on Fords for ever more.

Handling Ranked 2000 Volkswagen Golf worse.
"Hmm. A tight new Focus (in 2000) vs an 18 yr old Golf on worn shocks? Im going to say the Golf once Ive popped on some coil-overs!"
Looks/Style Ranked 2000 Volkswagen Golf better.
"Over the years the VW imo has definitely aged the best out of the two. "
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2000 Volkswagen Golf better.
"Who cares? Theyre both ok. Better than my Cayman. Worse than the wifes CRV "
Would Buy Ranked 2000 Volkswagen Golf better.
"I think that as a total package the Golf wins by a mile. The Focus was all cheeky banter and fun while the Golf was measured tones and charisma. Bond would pick the Golf. "
