2000 ZX3 vs 2008 S 2 dr
By Wayne Hulsey on
2008 Ford Focus S 2dr Coupe (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Had to replace my 2000 due to being totaled. Loved the car. To me they ruined it for 2008. No hatchback available. Sort of ugly clunky styling outside and inside is worse. The dash layout is very poor and unfriendly compared to the original. My elbow is sore from wacking the console bin when I shift. No spare tire which is really unaceptable in AZ due to our weather and cell phones don't work in lots of places. The Vista Blue color is nice (best thing on car), but miss my bright Autumn Orange. Ugly hubcaps. Basic sound system is better sounder then 2000. Seat bottom not adjustable like the 2000. Just not happy with car by comparison, can say I wish I'd bought the 2005 ZX3 that they had now.
Favorite Features
Its a nice color. Good sounding speakers.
Suggested Improvements
Right now I'd have to say bring in the new Euro version ASAP. Better and brighter color choices. Relocate console bin and parking brake handle. Make adjustable seat bottom standard. A spare tire, that is a real saftey issue to me. More driver friendly dash and shifter. Hatchback.
