I recently traded in my 2000 Ford
Escort ZX2 in for a 4-door Focus SE
sedan. This car has plenty of room for
up to 5 people. I love how you sit high
in it with a clear view of the road in
front. Love the sunroof and the in-dash
6-disc cd player..they are awesome. The
2.0-liter Zetec engine is peppy with
the 5-speed manual, but still lacks the
smoothness and precision of some of
those import cars, but road noise is
very minimal. This car handles
great..seats lack back support. The
brakes are dissapointing in this
car..reminds me of the escort again.
Overall, a great car for the
sunroof, 5-speed tranny, in-dash 6-disc
cd changer, fit/finish, quietness,
control layouts, roominess, & value
more low-end torque, less unrefined
engine feel, better seats, and that is
about all for now.
