Lotta' bang for the buck
By Wayne Bengston on


2007 Ford Focus ZXW SE 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


The Focus ST is more than the sum of its parts. The good; 0-60 in under 8 seconds. Effortless commuting & cruising. Superb handling with a Progress 22MM rear bar and Goodyear F1 GS-D3 tires to replace the mediocre Pirellis. Rich, communicative feedback from the tight, responsive steering. Very responsive, torquey 2.3L engine. Comfortable on 6+ hour trips. Seats 4 full size adults comfortably. Slick shifting 5 speed manual with a light, smooth clutch. Huge trunk that gets bigger by folding seats. Comfortable, upright seating position. The bad; interior rattles & squeaks. Indifferent fit & finish, huge panel gaps. Below average fuel economy for the performance. 26 MPG w/73% hwy.

Best Features

FUN to drive. Powerful A/C and heat. Radio plays MP3s. Comfortable, supportive seats. Tilt and telescope wheel. Standard 4-disk anti-lock brakes on the ST. Distinctive red accented charcoal interior. Very easy to get in and out.

Worst Features

Should come with more sport-oriented tires. Tires make or break this car, but that is easily fixed. Close up the panel gaps. Fix the rattles and squeaks. No new car should do that. Fix the rear-suspension thumping over pavement breaks. Add a limited slip differential to the option list.
