2004 Ford Focus Hatchback ZX5 Premium 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


Review

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 another one.


Favorite Features

My favorite feature is the In-Dash 6 Disc CD player. I am always in a different mood, so the changer comes in handy.


Suggested Improvements

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)

2004 Ford Focus Hatchback ZX3 Comfort 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

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 ?


Favorite Features

Automatic transmission and the steering, I love it.


Suggested Improvements

The base model should have all wheel disk brakes and a RS model in the usa ?

I've owned my Focus since 9/27/01 and it's been a great car. It's fun to drive and totally reliable. I've never had one thing go wrong with it.

2004 Ford Focus Hatchback ZX3 Comfort 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

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.
