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


I traded a '95 Chevy 1/2 ton 4x4 with
a V8, that I owned for 7 1/2 years,
for this car. So far I'm not the least
bit sorry. (Although, I might miss the
truck when it snows again, mostly
because I don't want to expose my new
car to the road salt & sand.) I guess
to anyone who might be leary of
downsizing like I did, give it a shot.
You'd be surprised at how powerful
these little cars are.

Best Features

Definitely the MP3/CD radio with the cool display. The presets are displayed as the actual station frequency rather than just a number such as 1 thru 6.

Worst Features

I don't understand why the ignition has to be in the run position in order to roll the windows up/down. I've never owned a vehicle that I couldn't run the power windows from the accessory position.
