Pretty much this however, Look for an 03 with the 2.3 Duratec, that is the most reliable engine with the most aftermarket support for both the engine and the car.

SVT's are nice but can hurt your budget just to maintain. Biggest problem is if your timing belt snaps, your motor is ruined.

ZX3's came with either the Zetec or Duratec but, if you decide to get a wagon or sedan: stay away from anything with an SPI motor!
