Just wondering what former Focus owners are driving today. I had a 2001 ZX3. Liked the car a lot, for its fun to drive feel. After lots of recalls and a few warranty fixes, it was quite reliable. A few things could be better. The Zetec was slow to rev and then revs would hang. The transmission was hard to shift on winter, mostly into first when rolling. I owned it for almost 14 years when lots of issues quickly added up that were not worth fixing due to the cost and vehicle age. Sadly due to the serious issues with the new powershift transmission (wanted an automatic after decades of manuals), I could not buy a Gen III Focus. I purchased a 2 year old Honda Fit and like it a lot (it is 10 now).
