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


Bought slightly used in '04. Opted for 2.3L eng. Great ride/handling balance. Fun to drive. V. good steering. Reliable: just brakes & some front suspension work after 5 years. Brakes could be better, but adequate. Excellent value, reliable, 27 MPG avg in interstate hwy / city driving mix. Purely on highway, at least 32 MPG at interstate speeds. Unique styling. Hard to find a non-conservatively styled hatchback. I'm discerning, yet recommend this car since I've got 101K on engine & car still works very well. Of course I maintain it well too, that helps. Good luck.

Best Features

Unique interior & exterior styling, yet practical hatch. Ride / handling balance.

Worst Features

Brakes are adequate, but could be stronger. 4 wheel discs limited to SVT model--should've been option for Premium model too.
