2007 Ford Focus ZX4 SES 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Good car overall, interior is roomy but cup holders far away and cups tip over. Have always felt the car pulled to the right, I'm a women so the excuse I get it's just the road. Steering is stiff to me. Pirelli tires not good, only 21,000 miles and already need replaced. Ford states tires have even wear but baldness not their problem.


Best Features

Good gas mileage, easy to park, roomy interior and trunk space.


Worst Features

Put tires that get more than 20k miles on. The center arm rest needs moved, elbow keeps hitting it and then it opens and anything in falls out into the back seat

2007 Ford Focus ZX4 SES 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I bought this ZX4 as a salvage fix up had 6000 miles on it. I now have 17000 and it is a very good car so far. No problems. Decent ride for a small car. Handles well. Good acceleration. Very pleased as of this time. I get 25 mpg with city and freeway driving.


Best Features

Premium sound system sounds great. Roomy trunk for a small car. Comfortable heated seats.


Worst Features

Needs a rear interior light. Bigger center armrest. Kind of a bland design but that was changed for 2008. Better exterior color choices.

2007 Ford Focus ZX3 S 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This is my second ZX3. My first '07 was totaled in March. Both of these cars are/were 5 speed S models. The only option on both was A/C. I have gotten 39 to 40 mpg on both these cars without running the air. With the A/C on I get 34 to 35. This car is a lot of fun to drive and the only negative comment would be the road noise-- it's not a problem on good roads. Maybe Ford will make another hatchback soon. The second one had Goodyears the first Hankook tires. The Goodyears are not as quiet but they are holding up well at 17,500 miles. This is a great car for the money. I can recommend it highly.


Best Features

Love the styling of the hatchback. Ford needs to bring this model back. The '08 is not something I would buy.


Worst Features

Side airbags should have been standard on the '07.

2007 Ford Focus ZX3 SES 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I bought htis car to use in travelling sales job. I have almost 72k miles on this car since 9/06 and only a few problems. As others have stated the Pirelli tires were gone at 20k miles. While under warranty cracked hub, broken stabilizer arm and brake drum were replaced. At 30k miles rear struts were replaced ( I sometimes carry excess of 350lbs in trunk and back seat). At 60k thousand miles had to replace alternator. I am large man 5'11" and weigh 300lbs, interior is roomy enough except on trips over 4 hrs. Driver side seat needs to be replaced, but that is my fault. Car still gets great gas mileage and is really quick. Fun to drive in mountains and never fails to go when pushed.


Best Features

30 mpg combines as high as 45 mpg on highway trips. Quick car, great gas mileage. very dependable. I am hard driver and car never complains


Worst Features

Improve interior layout..offer higher quality seats

2007 Ford Focus ZX3 S 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Best mileage so far is 36.5 MPG. Five speed manual shifts easily. On open road, car interior is very noisey (road noise), and is the only downside. Fit and finish was ok since hatch was not aligned very well from factory. Placement of the aux power receptacle is questionable since located very high on the dash. I use the car for basic commute averaging 75 miles per day. Unfortunate that Ford decided to discontinue the hatch. Smaller engine (1.5 liter )and taller gears (2 thru 6 instead of 1 thru 5) would have made great mileage candidate. Advertised split rear seat refers to seat back only, and not seat bottom, so not truely a split seat configuration.


Best Features

Low price, good mileage, nice color (tour-red), good cargo space


Worst Features

Reduce road noise. Smaller engine (1.5 liter )and taller gears (2 thru 6 instead of 1 thru 5) would have made great mileage candidate. Better fit and finish. Fix split rear seat. Cruise control should not be an option. Bring the hatch back.
