I've had the car about a month now. So
far so good. It is an automatic with
the sports package. I would have liked
some other options; ABS,& Moonroof. I
also would have prefered a 5 speed, but
that's what happens when you buy a
leftover. You have to take what the
dealer has. I did get a good deal
though; $12,500 + tax & tags. Not bad!
It's comfortable & quiet for a small
car. The handling is good for a 4 door
of it's size, but not as good as my
Nissan 200SX SER (Auto), or as fast. I
must say though that the Focus rides
like a bigger car. It must be the 103'
The 2.3L engine. A 2.0 in the 4dr with
an automatic would have been too slow.
The adjustable drivers seat, with
lumbar support. The stereo, dash &
Most of the improvements I'd like to
see have been done to the 2005 ZX4-ST:
More power, a 5 speed with a quick
shifter, ABS & traction control, better
(SVT) suspension, larger & better
brakes (4 wheel discs)perfomance
exhaust. A 2005 would have cost at
least $3000 more.
