2004 Ford Focus LX 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Good car bought with 44k on it. It's fun to drive but i wish it had more power& the clutch was a bit more aggressive ,if you have your rpm's up when you shift into 2nd,you have to drop them down before it will reengage. First thing i had to do is replace the lock cylinder.
The car has91k on it & i have replaced the front struts right side was different than
left,right side was bad. Left wheel bearing was replaced as well with the front breaks .
I do use the car to tow my trailer w/ATV or mower on it about 1500 lbs,& it does well,i get about 30 mpg average.
I like the tilt steering wheel,the lay out of interior,seems roomy for smaller car. power windows,locks are nice to.
stiffer clutch,more power,better mileage,better latch on arm rest,better electronics(radio some times shuts off,& lights in dash come on really dim when cars is off)
