2004 Ford Focus ZX3 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


My model is the "premium" ZX3 with the 2.3L engine. It is fully loaded and I picked it up for $11,500 with only 11k miles on it. If you don't have this engine, you are missing out...it really makes the car. I was looking for a hatchback to replace my truck and had one of these as a rental. I liked it over the Honda Civic Si, Golf/GTI, Protege5, Mazda3 hatchback, etc. Great handling and performance (145 hp), and decent mileage (24/30). Decent build quality for the money; couple of minor problems so far.

Best Features

Engine performance, handling, Audiophile stereo, hatchback practicality, and sunroof.

Worst Features

Terrible cup holders; include 4 wheel disc brakes standard; side-airbags should be standard.
