Very nice car for the price. The 2.0
Zetec is a great engine design that
comes standard on the ZX2 but must be
bought as an option on the Focus line.
Not only does it have better
aerodynamics but its also lighter than
the Focus. Driver and Passenger
seating comfortable even on non stop
(except gas and food) trip from Austin
to Philly with my brother.
Engine responds very well to mods, easy
to remove Ford's intentional
inhibitors. Good power at all RPM's.
The car deffinatly needs a better
transmission, both the 5spd and the
auto are weak. If you get an auto, be
sure to get a tranny cooler.
