Actually I had a 2001 ZX3 hatch prior to my current 9-3. I loved my it! For my needs it was perfect and the performance wasn't bad at all for an engine pushing out 130hp. It plowed through deep snow like no tomorrow. The SVT model had a bigger 170hp engine, but didnt come out until after I had bought mine. When I sadly gave it up it was still in perfect shape at just 46k miles. Only needed fresh brake pads, otherwise flawless. Unfortunately, last year Ford stupidly broke design development into separate Focus models for both the US and European markets. Sadly, the US models became far more conservative/boring than their European cousins. - tex
