2004 Ford Focus ZX3 Premium 2dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I was kind on the fence about this car -
I loved the styling and handling, but
was underwhelmed by the motor. The
Zetec is kinda crude and not too
powerful, especially when you drive it
back-to-back with Hondas and Toyotas.
Then, I drove one with the new Mazda-
built 2.3 - what a difference! This
motor is a little jewel - smooth and
powerful, with a nice little growl as
you hit 6000 RPM. Mind you, this is no
WRX-hunter, but it's plenty quick
enough. To top it off, I got a
ridiculously good deal - almost $4,000
off, plus a 5/100,000 bumper to bumper
warranty.


Best Features

Love the uprated engine, and the handling and steering are scalpel- sharp. This is one of the best-handling cars I've driven at any price. Also love the styling - great design, hasn't worn a bit since it came out in 2000.


Worst Features

A little cheap-looking inside, particularly compared to Civics and Corollas. The center console interferes with shifting. Shifter is a bit notchy, but it's accurate. Chassis is a bit twitchy on grooved concrete. There's also a bit of torque steer.

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


Review

Never had a problem this is a dream
car for 20 grand couldn't ask for
more, handleing is in a class of its
own plenty of power, tranny is
outstanding, over all this one gets a
15 out of 10! I WILL BE A REPEAT BUYER!


Best Features

A car that comes stock with heated leather Recaros, and HID's bimmers don't even come with them half the time


Worst Features

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


Review

of course i would have rather drove out
in one of those T birds that i couldnt
stop looking at while i was buying this
car, but i have to admit i like this
car.

i am six foot three and i noticed right
away that the steering wheel was
smaller than usual so my knees were not
wrapped around it, plus the height of
the car left plenty of room for me.
i am used to feeling smashed into a car
as small as this, and for once i feel
it was made for me, especially since
the seat actually lowers.

i have never owned a new car before,
and i have to agree with everyone else,
this is fun to drive, and the sound
system is pretty nice.


Best Features

spaciousness of the interior


Worst Features

shape of headlights. i dont really recall what the first focus looked like, but everyone who sees my car says it is alot more attractive now, so apparently it has already been improved quite a bit.
