2005 Ford Focus ZXW SES 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


This car is very roomy and easy to get in and out of. I am average build and over 6 foot tall and am comfortable in front and back seats. My parents have a new full size 4 door Jaguar which has significantly less head/leg room and is more challenging to enter and exit. Focus wagon's cargo area is very impressive for a car of this size. Visibility and ease of driving are very good. It’s fairly quiet and good riding. Pickup is good, but not like a sports car, but definitely adequate for merging onto freeways, etc.

Best Features

Standard MP3 CD player which allows you to basically have a several hundred song music library onto only a few CDs you don't have to take in and out of the car. Interior comfort and roominess is excellent. Car seems heavier and more solid than some of the Japanese imports I looked at.

Worst Features

Gas mileage is nowhere near the EPA numbers of 35mpg on the window. With no other passengers or load in the car and driving on nearly complete flat freeway with virtually no traffic or stops, at speeds averaging 60 to 65mph, with manual shift, I get around 28mpg. I don't know the actual city mpg.
