I really like this car better than the
Civic and Corolla. The car is quiet
and smooth. The 2.3 litre engine pulls
nicely and is very quiet. The handling
is very satisfing. The draw backs are
the design for rear seat entry is
confusing resulting in messing up the
seat back angle adjustment. I also
think the engine deserves a smoother
gearbox which does not compare to my
old Accord's or the new Honda's
gearboxes. I wish the hatchback had 6
inches more available for loading. It
fits my bicycles but the length is
Quiet, smooth, with crisp handling and
nice torque. The sound system is very
Needs a less notchy transmission and
better seat back lever system. Three to
six inches in length or eliminating the
need to fold the seat bottom up would
make cargo hauling easier.
I was really sceptical about this car
when qwe went to buy it. I thought it
would be under powered and un
comfortable. I am a big person over 6'
tall and weight to go with it. To my
suprise you could adjust the seat to
fit even my size. My wife fell in love
with it but i was still leary. After a
couple of weeks and driving it
myself,though I dont get to drive it
veroften it's "Her" car, my mind was
tottaly changed. It is very peppy for a
four banger and a blast to drive.
Another huge plus is the stereo rocks.
Over ll this car is awsome.
Mp3 plater and stereo and 32 miles to
Sunroof would be nice and get the
cruise control its not much more but it
would be worth it.
WoW! The New Partial Zero Emmission
2.3 liter engine from Ford is a real
treat. Not only is the engine much
more powerful than the z-tec it emits
close to no harmful emissions.
Emission related components are covered
up to 15 years or 150,000 miles!
The zx5 interior is exceptionally
roomy and its dash is stylish and well
laid out. The cd/mp3 player is great.
The hatchback design coupled with
the four doors makes the Zx5 a real
family car. Access to all seats is
good and there's actually alot of room
behind the rear seats for groceries.
Fold down the rear seats and you have a
ton of useable space.
In all the zx5 is great@!
The cd/Mp3 stereo, the pzev 2.3
engine, standard alloy rims and
Goodyear eagles, and the hatchback.
Use a little softer material on dash to
avoid scratches. Otherwise its looks
I had a horrible buying experience at
Earnhardt Ford in Phoenix, AZ, but
thank goodness I ended up with such a
great vehicle! The gas mileage is
great and it drives so smooth and
sporty. I was originally looking at
buying a Toyota Matrix, but decided on
the Focus instead because of the
value. It is a more affordable car
with virtually the same features.
I love the interior on my Focus. The
fabric used for the upholstery is so
modern and sleek, yet comfortable. I
also love the huge trunk space on my
hatchback. I also love how "zippy"
this little car is for a 4 cylinder.
I would definitely like to see the cup
holders improved. The rubber inserts
pop out whenever you have a drink that
