2006 Ford Focus ZXW SE 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


First Impressions - The first time I drove the Ford Focus Wagon was in 2003 as a rental. I was really amazed how fun it was to drive and so eventually we needed to buy a second car and it had to be capable of long trips that allowed our new dog to come along for the drive. Second Impressions - Our new 2006 Ford Focus Wagon ZXW SES is even better now that when I first drove the Focus. Not only is it extremely fun to drive, but it's fully loaded with options that some car makers don't even offer. The engine is peppy yet fuel efficient, the drive feels sporty and the visibility is perfect. Plus we can drive in comfort with leather heated seats and our dog has his own room with a view.

Best Features

Exterior finish, Interior Finish, Leather Heated Seats, Moon Roof, visibility, Peppy Engine, Manual Transmission, Heated Mirrors, Stereo controls on Steering wheel, ABS + Traction Control, Comfortable Drive, High Driving Position.

Worst Features

The trunk on the wagon is a bit tricky to operate. While it is quite light, it doesn't close fully without giving it an incredible slam. Otherwise it latches but doesn't close completely and you have to use the key fob to release it and try again, which is a bit startling for our dog in the back.
