Little Kitty Moves Like A Cheetah :) — Got this car after my Explorer kicked the tranny bucket. Have only had it for about a month now and so far I love it. Nice basic car that moves well on the highways and prowls the city streets like a pro! Got our first good snow/ice storm and this little car did fantastic in it. My job is up on a pretty steep hill and we drove past 3 cars that werent able to make it all the way up..the little Focus just cruised right up like the road was flat and dry!!!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Nice handling, better than decent economy, fun car!

Cons: In town fuel economy could be better.

Great Commuter — Overall, a great inexpensive car to own and operate, just turned 163000 miles and it keeps on going. Not bad for 2 adults, but it struggles with 4 people inside. Great gas mileage, I average approximately 31mpg on the highway, and about 25 mpg in the city. Overall it has been a trouble-free car, and I would definately buy another one

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great inexpensive commuter, and with the rear seats down can hold a surprising amount of cargo

Cons: Cabin noise at highway speed is high

'02 Zx3 Hatchback — Good over all, my car has problems that need to be fixed so i cant complain until i fix the problems and then judge. the Car length is nice and small so you are able to fit into tighter spaces. The car seats are so great i really missed them when i had to rent a car while she was in the shop.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Comfy Seats, Great MPG, great trunk space

Cons: the hatchback design can cause a blind spot when reversing or switching lanes.

Not A Bad Little Ride — I dont see many negatives with this car at all and am very happy with it. I think anyone that owns this car will not be disappointed. The biggest thing that is a pro about this car is how well it does on gas.

Pros: This is a good car with the gas it saves and reliability

Cons: I would like to have more HP

Works Great For A While — I've owned this car for just over 7 years. It served its purpose well, until last week. It has just over 150,000 miles on it, and last week the engine went out. Apparently a piston broke. I know very little about cars, but from what I could gather from research online and a friend's husband, it seems there was an issue with the cylinder and the piston which affected the spark plug and now the second piston no longer works. All of that to say, I need to buy a new engine. A shop quoted that it would cost $4000 to $5000, but my car is only worth $3800. I love how the car handled, and that it gets great gas mileage. But this car has cost me a bit to fix this or that because the check engine light went on. So beware if considering this car. It could be that I and the other people that reported it online just got lemons, but I'd be wary of the 2002 Ford Focus.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Handling, Comfort, Fuel Economy, Cargo Capacity

Cons: Interior Noise, Reliability

Love This Little Focus — I have had this car for a while now and i love it. It surprised me many time. Never would of guessed it would spin the tires in second. I know its not the fastest thing on the road, far from it. But its 5 speed, light, and a lot of fun to drive down curvy road.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: I love this things torque it can manage

Cons: Hate its light ass

It's Okay If It Is A Short Term Car — i spent a lot in maintenance. it had a lot of electrical problems, and my shifter got loose so it would not go into the correct gears all the time. the gas mileage could have been better for how small the car was. it was fun to drive. the looks were not too bad.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: looks

Cons: electrical, transmission,  gas mileage, and stuff.
