Reviewed: 2002 Ford Focus

2dr Hatch 170-horsepower 2.0L I4 6-speed manual FWD

Why the 2002 Ford Focus?


Extremely small turning radius. Can take turns at very high speed without losing control. Responsive and crisp steering

Exterior styling

More unique than any other hatchback. Innovative in its exterior design and look.

Safety & braking

Fast and controlled braking in nearly every situation. Traction control is effective in most situations. Saftey is decent for a car of this size

Powertrain performance

Smooth and strong engine for its size. Quick response and able to apply power effectively.

Price or payments

Good value for money. Inexpensive and usually reliable.

Why Not the 2002 Ford Focus?


Limited sound deadening, loud road noise if using low profile tires. Bangs, clicks, and knocks are common.

Interior styling

Bland one tone interior. Lots of thin plastic used in heavily used areas which cause aesthetically unappealing effects over time.

Reliability & durability

The interior was designed around a budget. Feels cheap, but because it is cheap. Everything seems held together with glue when it should be with bolts.

Brand reputation & image

If you are going to buy a ford sports car why would you buy a focus when you can have a mustang.

Materials & workmanship

Cheap materials used in sensitive areas.
