    Ford Should Disappointed In This One — It was a good car for the first few years I had it. I got it in 2005. In 2008 I started having a bunch of problems with it and continue to do so. I cant wait to get a different car.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Best Buy In That Price Range — best car ever, if u want a decent car for not too much money that is still fun to drive, if u buy the right engine anyway the focus is your man. and then u got the styling! which is still great

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: u want a car, buy a focus

    Cons: the whipers miss 1 setting :D

    Cheap On Gas — it isnt built well enough from the engine so it rattles but it is the cheapest car they make so what do u expect. it got little to no scratches outside and inside is clean it get about 30 mpg it might need break work on driver front wheel.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: its good on gas and not bad for someone who wants save money on gas and has no kids

    Cons: its seems that everything in it was made cheap so storage os lower quality then my old car(98 taurus).

    Great Alternative To Imports — With having full intake, exhaust, cam's, and a svt intake manifold, It really awoke this car, it keeps up loves to roast tires in 1st gear. With a auto-x suspension set up of full coil-overs from Ksport and front and rear sway bars, this car always remains flat in the corners, and is very fun to drive, in auto-x environment. This car tends to over-steer which is always fun. Still gets good gas mileage, fairly cheap to own and is easy to work on.

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

    Pros: cheap good tuner car

    Cons: Has really no top end

    My Zx5 — My new 02 ZX5 Focus. Bought it because it was cheap to insure ($92 a month for full coverage) parts are plentiful, easy to find and cheap (brand new crate motor ready to drop in $1000) It's pretty gutless but it works perfect for delivering pizza (30 mpg city/highway mixed)

    Pros: It's my car

    Cons: I'm still making payments on it

    Boom. — Well, as you can see, it blew up. On my way to work, it stalled and the engine poofed in to a fire ball. Don't get this car. I can never look at Focus' the same way again. Sad face.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Don't.

    2002 Ford Focus 2.0 Zetec — Good Car, superb handling for a standard car, could be quicker but its too embarrisingly slow to be fair, Loads of room for passengers in the rear, ample boot space, cheap to insure and to run. The other good thing about fords is if something did go wrong the bits are cheap compared to your audis, mercs and beemers!

    Pros: Good Handling

    Cons: Theres lots of them around
