I was hesitant to purchase the Focus
due to initial reliabilty reports on
the 2000 model. The test drive and
Fords quality improvements, which have
been large, persuaded me to buy the car.
This is the most fun American car I
have ever driven! The ZTW wagon (only
10in. longer than the sedan) handles
like a sports car( 16in rims/low
profile Pirelli Tires). Power from the
Zetec engine is smooth and consistent.
The sound system ( 6 in dash CD) is
superior. Ride is quiet and
predictable. Styling is Euro and
handsome. Lots of cargo room.
Driving experience. I look for longer
and more twisty roads to reach my
I love the manual transmission how ever
would have purchased the automatic if
it came with the techtronic features
abvailabe on other cars.
