2004 Ford Focus LX 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Cheap, dependable, spacious interior... need I say more


Best Features

Fold down seats...we haul everything


Worst Features

I realize this is a small car and you can only make so much room, but if the back seats had just a wee bit more leg room that would be great

2004 Ford Focus SVT 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6M)


Review

This car is worth every penny, especially with the generous rebates. All the magazine reviews are correct. The car handles and brakes like a race car. Although the SVT Focus is sluggish at low rpms, it comes on forcefully (like a turbo) at mid to high rpms. It has a nice exhaust note that's not offensive like aftermarket ones, and the telescoping and tilting steering wheel allows for the perfect driving position. The performance, practicality, utility, and fun to drive aspects of this car are unmatched. If you can find one without the unnecessary options, buy it. I got mine (no options) for only $16,700 out the door! Definitely a no- brainer.


Best Features

6-speed tranny, telescoping steering wheel, cockpit/interior


Worst Features

more low end torque, not having to buy premium fuel

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


Review

I loved my Focus the first year, great handling. After that, I started having problems with the engine. They told me I was using the wrong gas (premium is bad, regular is good), and need to clean it up, my fault so no warranty and they charge me around $550...4 months later, problems with the brakes, pay $500. 1 year later, I problems with brakes again and some with engine injection. The injection, I suspect was the same old problem, but now it was a re-call (It has like 7 recalls since I bought it) the brakes cost me another $650 bucks. Know I am selling it, and believe me I not getting another Ford, much less a Focus.
