2003 Ford Focus SE 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

Need to replace a 1996 Dodge
caravan (money pit). A friend of my
wife had just bought a Focus wagon
and she loved it. So we went and had
a look. Nice style, comfortable seats,
good visibility, plenty of power, and
nice extras. Test drove it in town and
out on the highway and was amazed
at the fine handling in the mountains.
As for power I'm happy as this is my
wife's car, but the power is there. On
driving it home I was shocked that I
was well over the speed limit when I
looked at the speedo for the first
time. Decided to use cruise control
until I got the feel for it 's speed.

So if your looking for a nice wagon
look no futher.


Best Features

Economy, clean lines, comfortable seats, lots of storage space and a color that realy grew on me.


Worst Features

Small under front seat storage compartments for those things you want out of view.

2003 Ford Focus SE 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I was scepticle about buying my new
Focus wagon. I worried that I would tire
of it quickly and worried that I might
not find it sporty enough. But, I
absolutely love it. I have never been
happier with an auto purchase.


Best Features

It whips in and out of places with total ease. But the best thing is the gas mileage. 30 miles to the gallon! I also love the Blahpunkt sterio that came in it. It rocks!


Worst Features

I haven't found anything that needs improvement. I do wish that mine had cruise control though.

2003 Ford Focus SE 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

Taking advantage of good incentives
(including the Costco Program), my wife
and I purchased a new 2003 Focus Wagon.
She had test driven an Ion, a Civic,
and an Echo (and of course, her old
Escort), and loved the ride, power,
handling, lines, comforts, space and
overall style of her new car. I've
driven it a bit, and I confess I like
it better than my '98 Saturn SL2.


Best Features

She likes the power best. Of course, she's going from 88 hp to 140 hp.


Worst Features

The one annoyance we have is the rear seat. The back rests are 60/40 spilt fold-downs, but the entire rear seat is one piece, making the split moot.

2003 Ford Focus SE 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

This wagon rides like a Cadillac. I
had a Focus 2 years ago, and was
always recieving recall notices in the
mail. I was leary about getting
another one; I'm very happy I did.


Best Features

Base sound system (CD player) sounds great. Power windows come standard; Thats cool.


Worst Features

More engine power. Cup holder placement is a little escue.
