2004 Ford Focus ZTS 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


I would still recommend the Ford Taurus
as a well built, safe car, but the
Focus is a well built smaller more
affordable car. You need to get the top
model in each style to get the larger
engine (2.3) which makes all the
difference. The standard sound system
with MP3/CD has great sound. A moonroof
is great but the sport package is not

Best Features

Most all controls are located well and operate smoothly. Car is sharp, is quick with 2.3 engine, shifts smooth, rides great even better with full load. The standard sound system in the ZTS is awesome.

Worst Features

door should open more smoothly. trunk should pop up more, when release is pressed. Needs fuel door release button. Not easy to see out during bad weather. Not as safe as Ford Taurus.
