[:D] Hey guys im new to the site, Im looking to buy a focus zx3 soon and had a few questions. I figured you guys would be the best to ask. What year in the opinion of you all is the best year to look at and what if any problems have you had with the focus (w/ specific year). I know or at least i think i remember some focus' had transmission problems in the earlier years?

2003 or above you will get the 2.3 which is a better starting platform than the 2.0.

i say look for and 05-07 ST because u get the 2.3 engine and its newer then gen 1 foci but it will still be cheap cuz of the gen2 focus that just came out

If you have 10-15K to spend grab a 03-04 svt focus. Pref EAP it comes with leather recaros, hid`s and 17 in 15 spoke rims. it also depends on what look he wants. The front ends changed, the rears stayed the same unless you get the SAP in the 05-07.

go with a 04 i have one had it for nearly 4 years not one problem yet plus if you can buy svt parts (suspension,rims,bodykit) for less than you would buy the actuall svt.if you say the car is slower then put a airintake on and exhaust and magically you will be running close to a svt specs. just my opinion

I would say 04 SVT if you have the money

Well i wish i had the money you all were talkin about but.. i dont. i ended up with a 2000 zx3, dark green. I love it! Its used and has some miles but it was all my parents could afford. I was in an accident with my other car 2 weeks ago (ford escort) and i basically just had the insurance money to spend on a new car. (im in college :)
