Missing my Escort
By Escort on
2005 Ford Focus ZX5 SES 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Interesting drive. At first I thought it will roll-over at cornering, but got used to it. For this particular car they should eliminate the word "economy" in "fuel economy": 22.4 mpg on the highway, 20.5 mpg in town. My Escort was close to 40 mpg. Dealer just doesn't want to fix it.
Color, style, steering wheel, rear bench becomes a nice platform.
Engine: improve it by replacing it entirely. Visibility: I'm tall and cannot really see the traffic lights while stopped at one. Steering wheel should telescope at least twice more.
