2006 Ford Focus ZX4 ST 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)

Review

The 2.3L engine is absolutely fantastic, and at 70 MPH you are just at the botom of the flat power curve, so roll on to pass requires no downshift. It's zippy around town and extremely fun to drive. There have been no problems, the sound system is great, handling is tight and responsive. other small "sporty car" drivers are surprised when they are outperformed by a Focus. I thought that the disconuation of the SVT would make my car choice harder, but this engine makes its power (less HP but more torque) about 1100 RPM lower than the SVT did, which makes it more driveable. You don't have to spin the motor to make good power, and it runs on regular (the SVT used premium).

Favorite Features

Sound system with driver controls, fold down rear seat/thru to trunk, huge windshield washer tank. Regular gas.

Suggested Improvements

Does not need the spoiler, which does obscure the rear view a bit.
