I bought my focus in the January Of
2003, and its been the best car that I
have ever purchased. Its fun to drive,
comfortable and totally cute. I bought
the ZX5 because I haul my brothers and
sisters around all the time, but I also
was going through the "I want a
Hatchback phase". I am totally pleased
with my Focus, and would totally buy
My favorite feature is the In-Dash 6
Disc CD player. I am always in a
different mood, so the changer comes in
The only improvement that I would
recommend is that they make it a little
more sound proof on the inside. I can
totally hear what going on outside my
car. Lots of road noise...Either that
or more speaker inside my car. :o)
I once had a 01' model with a 5 speed,
this auto is just as fun to drive and
the the quality is so good compared to
other cars I have had "
neon,mustang,daewoo" to name a few.
I would give it a second look, can so
many europeans be that wrong ?
Automatic transmission and the
steering, I love it.
The base model should have all wheel
disk brakes and a RS model in the usa ?
After purchase, I feel abandoned by
World Ford. [Although, I did get
solicitations for auto insurance]
Engine idles roughly -- enough to
shake the vehicle. Cuts completely out
when coasting with the clutch in.
Frankly, I do not trust WF enough to
take it back. I can see the $$$ now --
as I opted out of the maintenance trap -
- a mistake, I suppose.
