    2002 Ford Focus - (100A) 2dr Hatchback

    Pros: Get up and go on the freeway

    Cons: N/A

    Advice: Research

    I have had my Focus since May 15, 2001, and this is the best car I have owned in my life. I know that when I drive in the fog, on the highway or in the mountains, my family and I will be safe. I don't know what this guy Ashanti is talking about. Maybe he uses his car just to race or whatever, but that's what happens when you put alot of hope in a vehicle and don't test drive other vehicles. Secondly, he obviously didn't do any research. I researched everything on the Focus for three months and did a test drive on the LX and ZX3 (approximatey 1 one apart from each test drive). Next time, YOU, ASHANTI, need to take some extra time in choosing a vehicle.

    2002 Ford Focus - (100A) 2dr Hatchback

    Pros: The suspension and chasis.

    Cons: Recalls

    Advice: www.focaljet.com is a great online community to research this car.

    First Off the ZX3 is a different model than the LX Ashanti. ;) I have had my ZX3 since January of 2000. This car is just straight up fun to drive! In my opinion the Focus models are great values and offer an individual who enjoys driving a package which is hard to beat.

    2002 Ford Focus - (100A) 2dr Hatchback

    Pros: Head and hip room and fun to drive

    Cons: Front seats don't flip forward on a spring for rear seat access

    Advice: Make shure that you get the Zetec engine

    Bought this car in Aug. 2000 and haven't had any complaints.Lots of head and cargo room.The car handles great but the tires that come stock are terrible in rain and snow.My Gas mileage is 27.5 MPG on average but can drop dramatically with hard driving.This car is a joy to drive.You can toss it around in traffic and it doesn't float around like most domestic cars.Car has had several recalls,but most were minor and all were fixed without any pain.

    2002 Ford Explorer - XLT 4x4

    Pros: The third seat in the rear

    Cons: The placement of the power lock switch in the rear. Its hidden.

    Advice: Buy it with the V8 engine. You get more power for towing.

    Ford really did it right with the independant 4 wheel suspension and the over all comfort of the vehicle. I love driving it.

    2002 Ford Escape - XLT Choice (400A) 4x4

    Pros: Good looks, and a smooth ride for an SUV.

    Cons: The drivers seat is uncomfortabe for my 5'11' frame.

    Advice: Order one with the features you want for a few hunderd over invoice.

    Impressive quickness and low end torque that gets you off the line around town. Although the 'on ramp' acceleration was good, the downshift and corresponding high rpm feels a bit uncomfortable. The suspension is very comfortable compared to our older Jeep Cherokee or the Xterra and was a big selling point for us. The steering is light and a pleasure to park in 'small car only' spaces. The bright red with the side-step bars is sporty and the overall looks are a 10. Fit and finish are good although I wish the doors closed without having to slam them shut. My biggest complaint is that I can't get comfortable in the seat. The bottom cushion feels too short like I'm sitting on a bench. My wife's 5'4' frame must be just right for it though because she doesn't feel my pain.
