2004 Ford Focus ZX5 Comfort 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
I leased a 2-door Ford Focus for three
years. I loved the car. It handles
like a charm and is exceptionally roomy
for a vehicle of this type. I drove it
cross-country. It was comfortable and
pleasureable to drive. I just put gas
in. No problems.
In fact, I liked the car so much, I
bought one when the lease ran out...the
5-door model (4-door + hatchback). It
is well designed, very dependable and a
great family car. With the back seats
down, you can carry almost anything.
This car is a smart buy.
I love the way the car handles. It's
nimble, peppy and takes corners well.
Because of its short wheelbase, I get
in to parking places other cars
couldn't dream of getting into. So
parking is never a problem.
Everything that is not standard on this
vehicle is available. If I had any
complaint, which I don't, I'd like to
see the center arm rest between the two
front seats a little longer. Imagine,
that's the only improvement I think it
