Life with a Focus
By Jersey Dave on


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


My Focus wagon with automatic transmission has a lot of good qualities. It's spunky, offers great driving visibility and has lots of storage room. Little things like the theater lighting are also nice. But, I'm not very pleased with around- town gas mileage in the very low 20's. A 2005 car with a 2.0 liter engine, even with an auto transmission, should do a lot better than that. (My '94 Geo Prizm still gets 25-26 around town). And, I really don't like the European suspension. In New Jersey, we have way too many streets and highways that are in pretty poor condition. I really have fears that my Focus with get beaten or shaken to death way before its time.

Best Features

I like the smooth, spunky engine and the great storage room in back.

Worst Features

Gas mileage is way too low and the European suspension should to left to cars in Europe.
