A Drivers Car. — A solid chassis with a decent drive train and brilliant suspension. Stock performance is adequate, but really shines with help from the diverse aftermarket. Easy to maintain, but build quality is of lower quality compare to its European brother. Very fun car, very tossable in the corner, and you can find them cheap enough to not care. A bloody brilliant car, too bad Ford is too stupid to give this model and much needed updated (a true update, not a makeover).

Pros: Blood brilliant chassis.

Cons: Ford cheapen the American release.

My Focus — I traded with my wife. She took my Honda LX and I took the Focus ZTS. I love driving it even though it may not have as much get up and go. I like the way it handles and it is very low maintenance.

Pros: It's small and fits in tight spaces and handles great on windy roads.

Cons: The color

Nervous But Not Fast — It's kinda cool to drive a ZX5, lots of space. Very versatile little car with a quite surprising payload. It's nervous but not as good as the SVT. Too bad these ones are hard to come by where I live.

Pros: Consumption, payload, space & handling

Cons: Rusty at some places, parts are a pain to get

2002 Ford Focus Zx-3 — Pretty decent car overall. I've installed 17" wheels and a cold air intake. It's certainly not fast, but with a 5 speed and a sunroof it's fun to drive. I've gotten 32 mpg on trips which I think is pretty good.

Pros: Gas mileage, fun to drive, and surprisingly roomy.

Cons: Some repair issues.

What Is Up With The Ford Focus? —

PERFORMANCE: The Ford Focus 1.6 Zetec (English) is stunning. To see what Ford have created here you simply need to turn into a roundabout a bit too quickly, lift off and watch the tail slide enthusiastically round like a dog doing doughnut on a polished floor (don't forget the opposite lock). Watch the suspension cope with the most ridiculous of tasks, such as hitting speed bumps at 40mph, or driving down one of North Yorkshires quality roads at a healthy speed. The engine could do with slightly more power than the 99bhp the 1.6L engine offers but it copes fine on country roads and being thrashed up and down the motorways at 90. APPEARANCE: The appearance of the car hasn't aged as bad as other cars that were launched around 1997, such as the latest incarnation of the VW Golf or the Vauxhall Astra. The Focus still sits well in the car park next to much newer cars. BUILD QUALITY: This car has been in my family for 7 years now (from new) and has survived being tipped on it side and being trashed about the countries worst roads by yours truly. If you drive like I do then you will get 30mpg out of it, otherwise you are looking at 38-40mpg, it's all about how you drive the thing (think economical thoughts!). CONCLUSION: Given the choice I know what I would be driving, since I don't I am driving the Focus but if it was up to me I would still be driving the Focus.

Pros: Handling

Cons: Power!

My Car — I love my little car! It's a yellow focus and, though it's not a high-powered car, I can get nearly 40 mpg. I especially love the sub Trav installed for me :) And now that he has a grey Focus we totally match... but not in a lame way.

Pros: Comfortable, great fuel economy, excellent sound system, handles awesome

Cons: Horsepower is only 130 (torque is 130)

2002 Ford Focus Review — While the performance was okay for everyday driving, the build quality of the 2002 Focus was very sub par. The main problems are under the hood; the engine while running or driving is very loud and annoying. While many a mechanic has said that nothing is wrong, others mention problems ranging from needing a new engine mount to problems within the cylinders. The cost of ownership is probably one of the highest out of any model year for the Focus due to what I mentioned above. The appearance of the Focus is fine for my taste, although after driving a new 2008 Ford Focus, I like the interior, exterior, and under the hood MUCH better. Ford has really cleaned up their act from 2002. That being said, while the 2008 was a blast to drive, the 2002 Ford Focus isn't too bad either. I would say it is a fairly zippy little car

Pros: Good Gas Mileage, adequate performance for everyday driving

Cons: Loud and annoying engine noises, high cost of ownership

... — 0-60 in about 8 seconds on a 2.0 SOHC engine running 115hp and 120lb-t it's not bad for a sedan. The suspensions dialed in tight and there's not much you can do to break traction, and the brakes stop on a dime. However Ford doesn't build cars to last any more, and its needed a few repairs here and there. It makes about 32 mpg and doesn't need to much on the maintenance side of things. And its a fun little car to drive.

Pros: solid engine, great suspension, excellent brakes

Cons: electrical can be buggy at times

Focus Saloons Are Great — Its a saloon........great boot space so you can travel in it anywhere! Goes fast, is responsive, comfortable and has everything i need as it's a Ghia. Family car but fun! Petrol consumption is o-kay too tho the car tax was £125 as it's a 1600cc. I'd buy one again that's for sure.

Pros: fast, lots of room inside and boot space is amazing!

Cons: none
