One will usually hear the terms 3-door and 5-door to refer to hatchbacks. 3-door means there are two passenger doors and the hatch. 5-door means 4 passenger doors and the hatch.
#13 of 21 Focus vs. Golf

I have to agree with ddaley in post#3. I just bought a VW Golf and I know that the 5-dr Focus could have changed my mind. The 3-dr was just too small, the wagon too big, and the sedan way too ugly. The 5-dr was just right, but I guess not right enough for the U.S.

I currently own a 1988 Honda Civic Hatchback. I would like to purchase another Honda Hatchback, but the 2000's have three cubic feet less cargo area.
I have read on the Internet, that Honda will not make Civic Hatchback's in 2001. Is this true? Also, does anyone know how to e-mail Honda. I want to suggest that they return to making station wagons instead of the more cumbersome CRV?

I'm fairly certain that our Town Hall Expert on Honda Sales, isellhondas, has confirmed that the Civic hatchback will not be continued. To contact Honda, check out their home page for more information.
If you get a response regarding the future of Honda hatchbacks, please let us know. Thanks!

I just owned focus 1.6 HB, but suffering some annoying rattles coming from rear side and upper right corner. My dealer unable to fix the problem.
Checking the list showed me that some have the similar problems. Could anyone put remarks on this?

At one time, i had a 83 Camry 5-door or 4-door with a hatchback. It served both functions of a sedan and having easy accessibility to the cargo area. It is a shame that concept was abandoned.

I quite agree!

About the same time the Camry hatchback existed, I had an 80's Nissan Stanza 4-door + hatch. Nissan of course dropped it for a 4-door sedan. When they did this, they lost me as a customer.

I read a blurb somewhere that a four-door hatchback version of the new elantra will be available sometime in 2002. Can anyone confirm this and provides any more details?
