Auction Watch: 2003 Ford Focus ZTS

Take a quick look at this 2003 Ford Focus ZTS with 2.3 liter engine and 5-speed manual gearbox here on eBay bidding for $750 with auction ending on Monday.


  1. That listing gave me a stiff neck. The seller must be the guy who did camera blocking for the Batman TV series back in the 60s. Biff!! Zap! Powie!

    Anyway, these are decent enough cars, good fun to drive, and the 2.3 adds a little grunt. It is a Duratec-based (next gen, after the Zetec) PZEV motor . That means it has a timing chain (good), but it is an interference motor (bad).

    I am surprised this car has a reserve price. At this point and at that mileage, they are hard sell.
