2001 Ford Focus 2.0 Zetec 3dr (Sport Trend) 2.0 petrol
Good handling, soft GT
Some problems in the transmission. It cost me about $350. Nothing else.
Very good handling, probably the best handling car of its segment. It's superb now, after a modification.
The performance's only good (9.2 sec. 0-100km/h acceleration) A 2 liters engine could have been better (only 130 HP.) The transmission is something between sport and family car.
As comfortable as a compact car.. The rear seats are surprisingly comfortable, having enough legroom even for a man 185 (6'1") tall.
The worst thing is, you don't see the ends of the car; severe problems with parking. also the mirrors are not good enough, yet you get used to it..
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

It is quite simple, the 17" wheels instead of 15" (stock orignal) is about the difference between 9 and 7.7 sec. Beware of tranny overload.

Putting a piperx viper kit, throttle body, stainless steel exhaust and remapping my ecu on my 2 litre focus. ITS GONNA FLY!

Putting 17 inch wheels on your car will infact slow it down rather than speed it up!!
