disappointing fuel economy
By jim worcester on
Vehicle2004 Ford Focus SE 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl 4A)
ReviewAlthough we have only put on 6900 miles so far, I am disappointed with the fuel economy (5 speed manual). Much of our driving is rural and we are seeing generally slightly less than 30mpg. We are still driving our 1995 Ford Escort Wagon 5 speed manual with 220000 miles that is still getting close to 40mpg (summer). Owners manual said to wait until after about 5000 miles to check mpg, which we have and still hasn't improved.
Best FeaturesInterior lites that stay on until car is started.
Worst FeaturesWhy was the headlite switch moved to the dashboard (from the steering column)? Love the little wagons, but it is getting harder to find with 5 speed manual. Apparently roof rack is expensive option, about $100 for each crossbar.
