Hello all.. I don't have a Focus yet. I currently drive a 2004 F150 2wd with some small stuff done to it. I'm looking to purchase a Focus soon so I joined up to learn more about them to be able to make an informed decision on my purchase... Well, back to work I go.

2000 zx3

Hi i have a 2000 zx3 hatchback with the 2.0 zetech motor. My car is lowered on svt rims with intake exhaust headers back and a staged clutch. I used to work at a high end used car dealership and got to drive alot of nice cars. Still to this day after driving hundred thousand dollar cars the focus is one of the funnest :)

Hi I also have a 2000 zx3 ztech I was wondering
If you ever had a prob with overheating at slow speeds
Or at stops? Seems the only time my cooling fans
Kick on is if the ac or defrost is on?temp runs about 96-100c
When I'm moving but when I stop it starts climbing has climbed to 110c+ at one point
Still didn't have cooling fans come on?any thoughts?

Hey, all... just signed up. My name is Bruce, and I drive a 2005 ZX3 SE, Egg Yolk Yellow, with an automatic transmission.



I have to say, I haven't had a single major issue with this car yet, having had it for eight years now, but in that time, I have come to know what I do and don't like about it, lol. But it has served me well so far.

What I Drive: 2013 Blue Candy Metallic SE 5-door

Hey folks,

I just bought my first Focus a week ago. I've been a Ford guy since I was a kid and have owned 7 or 8 in the last 30+ years, though the vast majority in the last 14. I'm really pleased with the Focus so far. I'm glad Ford decided to use their world platform starting in 2012.

Mine is a '13 SE 5-door (hatchback) in Candy Blue Metallic with auto, Sirius, auto-lamps, reverse sensors and everything else that's standard. I got a fantastic deal on it and am looking forward to a long "relationship" with it. My last Ford was an '07 Escape Hybrid and it served me flawlessly for 182K miles, so "Lil' Blue" has some big shoes to fill.
