2004 Ford Focus ZTW 4dr Wagon (2.3L 4cyl 4A)


Nice driving feel suspension control.
High praise, considering that I drive a
Porsche on sunny days/weekends. Not the
cushiest, most refined car in the
world, but a LOT of bang for the buck.
Wagon has more usable cargo space than
any small SUV. My car is fully optioned
out (as cheap VW Jetta with better
performance). Regrettably, the wagon
can no longer be purchased in better
than SE trim. Worse, Ford no longer
sells the 2.3L PZEV engine in the
wagon. The 2.3 is way quieter than the
2.0; it drives MUCH better than its #'s
would suggest (and its #'s are a lot
better than the 2.0's). If you need a
wagon but like the '05 ZTS performance,
seek out an 04 ZTW, rather than an 05

Best Features

Engine, suspension, driveability, handling

Worst Features

Add a rear seat courtesy light in the wagon. IMPROVE THE OWNER'S MANUAL. My car has a lock delay feature (apparently a rare feature included with highly optioned out ZTW's). The dealer had to call Detroit to figure out why my car's rear tailgate wouldn't lock immediately.
