2004 Ford Focus Wagon SE 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

fast, smooth transmission, handles like a sports car,small outside but big & roomy inside, rides as smooth as a large car,excellent visibility and high seats that can be adjusted, well made, traction in wagon improved by moving spare tire and heavier items onto the back seat or on the floor,long trips are non tiring,well named as a 'fun' or 'zippy' car, but get the extended warranty.


Favorite Features

Sporty handling,smooth transmission,visibility,large room for storage or sleeping in wagon,,fun & non tiring to drive.


Suggested Improvements

additional weight in front for traction in wagon.

Review

2 kids and no more Mustang opted 4 a wagon over an SUV and didn't want to pay much: frugal CPA. Handles fine, nice pickup 4 a small engine (had 2 Mustangs since 17). Inside is ok in fit however I am 6'3" 275 with a 56 jacket size & 23" arms (competitive strongman)(I can not fit in the yupo BMW 3 series or Audi). The stereo is great: Blaupauk that is standard CD MP3 player. Just wish the rear seats fell flush when down. Looks exactly like Volvo V40 (Ford owns Volvo) for 10K less minus sun roof & leather seats. If you need a slant on your front grill 4 10K more go 4 it. My wife's 2 friends have the Volvo & they even said it is same just less frilly.


Favorite Features

Stereo, Fuel, avg 31MPG


Suggested Improvements

flush rear seats when down

2004 Ford Focus Wagon ZTW 4dr Wagon (2.3L 4cyl 4A)


Review

This car is a delight to drive and pleasure to own. I've been able to haul considerably large loads in it - to my satisfaction. It consumes a bit more gas than it should; my 15 year old compact sedan consumed far less even in its last months. It has a tendency to reach high speeds before I know it; hard to avoid speeding. The upholstery is poor, but the seat is comfortable for me. I had no options for better tires so the ride can be rough at times.


Favorite Features

What I love most is that it is just pure fun to drive, and when I first got it, it's style was quite unique. Handsome car for a wagon.


Suggested Improvements

Better gas mileage. Better upholstery.

Review

THIS CAR HAS MORE ROOM INSIDE THAN WOULD EVER BE EXPECTED. IT IS EXCELLENTLY DESIGNED AND IS AS COMFORTABLE AS POSSIBLE. THE GAS MILEAGE IS FANTASTIC AND IT IS AN ABSOLUTE JOY TO DRIVE. I THOUGHT THE PURCHASE OF THIS VEHICLE OUT FOR A LONG TIME BEFORE MAKING THE JUMP AND I CERTAINLY DO LIKE THIS CAR.


Favorite Features

INSURANCE RATES ARE VERY GOOD ON THIS VEHICLE. LIKE PICKUP AND TILT WHEEL WHICH ALSO TELESCOPES.


Suggested Improvements

NONE
