After reading reviews of the Focus/ZX2
here and at other sites/publications I
was pretty convinced that was the car
for me. So I went to the local
dealership and took some test drives.
You all know what I ended up buying. :)
I certainly *WILL* buy another when
this one kicks the bucket. . .if Ford
doesn't do something stupid like keep
the Focus before the ZX2. The Focus
needs some serious refinement in build
quality before I'd consider it again.
Lots of nice standards (such as alloy
wheels and spoiler), extras don't cost
a ton, build quality is excellent,
quick accelleration and most of
all. . .NO RECALLS! *cough*Focus*cough*
I have one improvement: bigger more
powerful engine. If that can't be done
for the price so be it. . .in my book
its the perfect car in this price
