Overall excellent car with AMAZING fuel economy

2002 Ford Focus SE Base

Small yet very spacious. Gets about 25 mpg in town and about 32 mpg on the highway which makes this an excellent car for me since I live on social security disability and have quite a few medical appointments every month. Has a very nice factory stereo in it with awesome base. The only problem I have with it is the fact it likes to power off on occasion on it's own. Something went out on the heating system has went out and only blows on defrost and the power steering went out. It does like to lock on it's own so I do not recommend leaving it running with the windows up. I would recommend a better storage area for the console in between the front seats. The dash lights are not very bright either. The headlights are super bright both on dim and bright. And I hate the fact they come with aluminum rims. The trunk is super spacious.

My ford focus has seen a lot of action.

2002 Ford Focus SE Base

Right now, I need new brakes, plug wires and an oil change, but it is an old car with almost 300k miles on it. It's a comfortable little car, and for as old as it is, it starts up everyday and has quite a bit of zip left. Sometimes the electrical system is unpredictable, tail light goes out/comes back on, stereo turns off/turns back on, but nothing major.

No longer available ford focus wagon. Very versatile.

2002 Ford Focus SE Base

Runs well, it is the station wagon that ford does not sell here in the United States. It is easy to maintain. It has had its problems. Just had to replace the catalytic converter after 9 years when it was last replaced. When I purchased in used in 2011, I had to replace the coil pack, shocks, tires, the rear hatch switch and the center armrest.

Ford motors have never let me down.

2002 Ford Focus SE Base

Well I've put about 180000 miles on it and beside basic maintenance and the cv joints I had to replace its been a great car. It is getting up there and I think next year i'll be getting another ford. It been reliable and I have been so happy with its performance.It's giving me just what I need to get around.

Reliable, inexpensive to maintain. Easy to drive and park.

2002 Ford Focus SE Base

Great gas mileage, only normal maintenance required. Only normal maintenance has been required for the most part. Had a problem with the battery cables being loose but that was fixed at a very low cost. Easy to park, paint job is still perfect after 17 years. Not problems with wiring, AC, or other.

My experience with a used 2002 ford focus.

2002 Ford Focus SE Base

It has a lot of issues. It is not a good car if you do a lot of driving. Regular maintenance is very important. It is easy to work on and parts are affordable. It seems like a money pit. Once a fix an issue it seems 2 more pop up. I suggest this car if you do local driving.

- Rhiannon R

The car is good on gas. But that is all its worth at this point.

2002 Ford Focus SE Base

Well the rim's are bent from all the potholes here in Indy. So I need to get a set of rim's. I need new tires. The heat shield under the car came loose. So it needs welded back on to the body of the car. The transmission does not work in overdrive. So it needs some work.
