2004 Ford Focus Sedan SE 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)

Review

I got this car from my brother with about 60K miles on it. The check engine light came on soon afterwards, the IMRC actuator was not working. Brake rotors wore out about every 20K miles, apparently that's normal. At 119K, IAC went bad, then everything else did too. Fuel lines, fuel pump, MAF sensor, O2 sensors, bad cat, and the brakes squealed even with new rotors and pads. It was a great car until about 100K miles, then it gave up. Oh yeah, the air filter is "lifetime" or 100K miles, then it's 500$ Poor quality parts, disposable American car. My 93 Subaru has 180K on it, runs great, very few problems. Sad American cars can't really compete with Japanese cars that are made in America

Review

Great Car! Bought used with 24,000 miles on it, now have 105,000 and had only minor issues. Pretty comfortable, great gas mileage, 2.3 delivers good power too. Only issue I have is that it doesn't do all that great in the snow.

2004 Ford Focus Sedan SE 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)

Review

A fine-handling and looking car with plenty of lux touches for the price. Performance is great with good economy. The interior is refreshingly stylish - a feature ruined on the '05s. The quality of interior materials is only so-so, however; my car had numerous trim defects. The hood is of too-thin metal and lacks an underside pad. The heater fan is noisy on higher settings, and using air con saps engine power considerably, esp. in 5th. The car is a little slow off the line (in 1st), but picks up in the higher gears. With the sloping hood it's hard to see the corners of the car. Overall, for the money the '04 Focus SE is a great buy.

It gets great gas milage and it is fun to drive. It could use a little more power. But who wants a speeding ticket?

Review

SPITFIRE (triumph) barebones super fun for $1560. Forward 39 yrs. FOCUS se, only way to beat it is w/svt. 100 mph on highway like 60 in anything else. Back country roads are heaven. Handles as good as the spitfire or better and ride is light yrs ahead. Comfort is 94%, could use a little tweeking on leg room an seat size, shape an padding.

Review

My 2003 Focus SE does incredibly well in the mountains, climbing long inclimes up to 80 mph. It does handles well in the city as well as on the interstate for long trips. One minor change: give it an adjustable steering column for ease of entry for us big guys.
