2004 Ford Focus ZX5 Premium 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


The focus is a great car with awesome
handling, great steering feedback
and(with the 2.3L engine) good
performance even with an auto tranny.
It's quite zippy, handles very well(mine
has 16" wheels from the factory) and
sips gas pretty good when not being
abused. Round town I get about 27mpg
and on the highway, i can get up to
about 32mpg.

Best Features

factory Blau mp3 player is nice, and stereo has good response for only 4 speakers. Moonroof is real nice too, and I like the fold down seats in back, and the instrument cluster is very readable day or night. The HVAC controls are super versatile and a joy to use(yeah! a recirculate button!)

Worst Features

None really, except i would like to see higher quality fabrics used on the seats. The seats themselves are quite comfy, but heavier fabrics would add to the overall solid feeling the car has.
