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


FoMoCo has vastly improved their small car design over the years. My first one was purchased new in 1981 (Mercury Lynx). This Focus wagon is fully loaded with options. All work well. I do look forward to replacing the Goodyear tires that came on it, however (Never had much luck with this brand, especially in getting them perfectly balanced). More insulation would be a good idea. Although not really annoying, you are definitely made aware of the high winding DOHC 4 cylinder engine doing it's thing, especially during "brisk" acceleration. All the teething problems Focus had in it's first few years seem to have been addressed and taken care of. So far, so good.

Best Features

Performance and handling are outstanding. Nice looking little wagon.

Worst Features

Dash material could be improved. Looks cheaper than the rest of the vehicle. Steering wheel positioning is adjustable, but still isn't 100% how I want it. (Picky, picky!).
