Missing my Escort
By Escort on


2005 Ford Focus ZX5 SES 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Interesting drive. At first I thought it will roll-over at cornering, but got used to it. For this particular car they should eliminate the word "economy" in "fuel economy": 22.4 mpg on the highway, 20.5 mpg in town. My Escort was close to 40 mpg. Dealer just doesn't want to fix it.

Best Features

Color, style, steering wheel, rear bench becomes a nice platform.

Worst Features

Engine: improve it by replacing it entirely. Visibility: I'm tall and cannot really see the traffic lights while stopped at one. Steering wheel should telescope at least twice more.
