2001 Ford Focus SE 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


I was in Germany on business and rented
an Audi A3. My trip got extended and
Hertz needed the Audi back so they
swapped me for a Ford Focus SE Wagon. I
ended up driving it for two weeks, and
I commuted from the hotel to the office
on an "unlimited speed" portion of the
Autobahn. This car is fantastic! I had
no problems in town with acceleration,
and I was able to maintain 120 mph on
the way to and from work! I like the
shape of the key: less wear. The
interior space is gigantic, even by
medium size wagon standards. The ride
is Euro-firm, but softened a tad for
the US model. I treated it like the
rental car that it was, and nothing
disappointed me, that says a lot! I now
plan to buy one!
