Anyone out there own a Ford Focus? SWMBO & I are thinking of buying a used one (probably a wagon). Just wondering if anyone has had any problems with them. Thanks!

We have a 2000 Sony Edition, 5 speed with the Zetec engine and love the thing! Total blast to drive! Only problems we had was a gas line fitting at the tank went, and something started to rattle in the front suspension, both were covered under warranty. We are very happy with it.

I've got an 01 ZX-3. Great little car - good zip, 30 mpg, and the insurance company likes it a lot better than the Mustang GT it replaced... Been back to the dealer once on a sensor failure - now have over 30K miles on it.

You might check out www.focaljet.com also for more info on specific model/year problems. Quality has improved each year - the Focus did suffer from bad publicity after introduction.

My mother has an 02 ZX5, and another friend also has an 02 ZX5 - both very happy with ZERO probelms.

Biggest drawback I've noticed is that resale $$$ is HORRIBLE!

I noticed that resale value is low...which is good for me, since I'm buying used! Thanks for all the input gang!
