Hey, I'm just getting into cars now. and I'm at the age where i'm about to get my license and i was looking at the Ford Focus. Anything I should know about them? I'm looking at one now 2002 with a Carbon Fiber Hood for 11,411. Is that good? thanks for any input.

But if he's just gonna be getting his license insurance would be a reason to go with a ZX3 instead of an svt heard there considerably more than the ZX3 but not 100% on that part just heresay.

DaveW- is the car posted for sale online? if so could you provide a link to it?

I agree with ZETEC3, I would check insurance prices. SVTF will be more, trust me on that... Right now you can get any 2003 Focus for 0% APR 72 months and a 3K rebate. Might want to check that out, if you are interested.

I am 17 years old and drive a SVT. The insurence for the focus is the same for each the SVT and normal ZX5, at least for me. I was told that the insurence is the same because they had not yet made a difference between the SVT and the regular ZX5. The insurence increase will start on the 2004 model. I live in Michigan, though, and dont know how this varies per state or insurence provider. Also I have a ZX5 so it could be higher for the ZX3 model, but i dont know for sure. I would suggest you check out the insurence before you buy.

That price is really high. The carbon fiber hood doesn't increase its value. Check out http://kbb.com for used car retail prices. If you are buying the car from an individual it should cost less than if you are buying the car from a dealership.
Heres what you should know about the Focus. Its an economy car so don't confuse it with a sports car unless its a Focus SVT. The Focus SVT is mean! If you're into hatchbacks you might also want to check out Volkswagen GTI & the Honda Civic. I recommend getting a manual for your first car.
