2004 Ford Focus ZX3 Premium 2dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


I come from a large family where I've
had ample opportunities to own various
vehicles, which have mostly been
imports. I took a risk with the
Focus, and I am suprisingly happy. I
am an extremely demanding owner, and I
couldn't find even one flaw the first
60 days. One exception was the
inaccurate fuel gauge tha left me
stranded for 1/2hr. Otherwise, much
larger than it appears and very fun to
toss into curves/corners. Granted,
it's no BMW like my other car, but
much more rewarding than a toyota or
even honda. Hope there's more of this
from Ford.

Best Features

Steering feel, taut handling, solid feel.

Worst Features

Better dealership experience (absolutely horrible Dillon Ford in CT), higher grade interior materials.
