improvements not required in the focus
line up. performance is great with the
2.3 engine; better than almost any
other car in its class, even better
than the V-6 in my wife's malibu! It's
relatively quiet, even w/ low profile
tires. handling is great, as is
comfort on longer trips. driver seat
adjustability is great. If you like to
drive, and you're on a budget, this is
Engine! without a doubt, the 2.3L DOHC
engine is a must have. runs far
stronger than any four cyl. I've ever
driven, and some V-6's too!
Only complaint I have is the wiper
blades. the originals streaked soon
after delivery, and the replacements on
warranty weren't much better.
