All ZX3's do have the Zetec engine (I have a 2000 ZX3). I bought mine as a rebuild, and the price was $7,995. I saw from the same dealer that I bought from a couple weeks ago, they had a 02 or 03 ZX3 for $6,995. I'm actually debating going back to him and seeing if he will trade, as I've had to have him look at my Focus 6 times since I bought it a year ago.
I'm not sure what other prices around are, but as far as rebuilds go, if you can find out exactly what happened and don't mind (I was actually able to get pictures of mine, very light damage, and needed a new hood/bumper/radiator) the past damage, go for it.

Check carmax. I don't really now how this place works but they got some foci for around your price. Here's a link to a carmax search in my area(Memphis). I would have done one for yours, but i don't know where you live, sorry Carmax

I might have gotten the best deal here. I bought my Focus from my father with 28K on it for what he owed. 6000. Got a nice 6.5% interest rate from the credit union too. I have seen plenty of Foci on the net for around 7-8 grand. watch out though that you don't get a lemon or one that was totaled. Carfax, carfax,carfax.

Unless you got it from CA, NY, or MA in 2003. Then it had the 2.3l. ;)

i found a deal on a 03 se sedan for around 9 grand. i don't quite believe it, but i'm calling tomorrow to find out all of the details. i also found a good deal on a used 01 zx3. it might need a little work. he said that the suspension might need to be fixed cuz he hit a pothole but it needs to be looked at. also it needs 2 new front tires. would i be better off getting him to do the work or doing it myself(the suspension i'd get looked at at a local mechanic)? thanks.

You could always try to see if he will drop the price becaus eof the ensuing suspension work that will need to be done. It might not need much in reality. Some people who don't know much about cars feel the bounce from a bent wheel, which is common with the Foci 16s when the fight with potholes, they think the suspension is f-ed up. See if he will let you take it to a suspension shop and get an estimate. If you decide to do it yourself, which I don't reccomend unless you have done so before, you will have the list of what you will need.

The PZEV 2.3L wasn't released until '03. up until that point all the ZX3's had 2.0L

I purchased new 03 zx3 stick stripper 2.3 duratec for $8400 including rebates if you look hard and bargain harder you shoul be able to squeeze a ddealer, I would go 31 december new years eve at 4pm and tell the salesman what you want and he has 45 minutes to complete the deal or you will walk, then start your
watch, and stick to your guns tell him 30 minutes left 15, then 5 this eliminates the b.s. but you got to know
what you want when you go. Good Luck!

bxr650 is right...and DO NOT test drive the car BEFORE u make a deal...test drive it somewhere else, not the same place u buy it...that way, ur more convincing...they tried to get me to test drive my car before they matched what I wanted...I told no, the car is a "want, not a need"...that way when I told them I would walk if they couldn't give me what I wanted I was more convincing....
