2007 Ford Focus ZX4 SES 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

It is a nice car that has a few glitches. The car has a prolonged start on occasion and losses power when the air conditioner is running. The car is fun to drive, however, the pirelli tires didnt last for very long. I had to replace the tires after 9 months of owning the car and it only had 19,000 miles on it. Ford didn't stand behind the quality of the tires and I had to spend 460 for new tires on a fairly new car!


Best Features

Heated seats, and stereo


Worst Features

Ford needs to spend more money on the tires. My car came with 16" alloy wheels. My tires wore very fast. I needed to replace them after 9 months of owning the car with only 19,000 miles.

2007 Ford Focus ZX5 SES 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

After driving a GMC Jimmy, the ride is much different and can't really be compared. For a small car, it is very fun to drive and it let's me pass the gas pumps giving good gas mileage. This model's standard features are great with it's leather seats, 6-CD stereo pkg with controls on the steering column and cruise as well as a sunroof. Telescopic steering wheel is great especially if you and your spouse are going to drive the vehicle - saves a lot of arguments! It has great handling and when I drive this car I feel like Mario Andretti! I would recommend this car to anyone looking to save dollars on gas and is a fun to drive car.


Best Features

Heated seats and mirrors, telescopic tilt steering, lots of power for a 4- cyl, great handling, 6-CD stereo system, sporty look, hatchback is fairly roomy and the fold-down rear seats are a bonus when you need to fit a little extra, cup holders in doors, tachometer, manual crank for seat height


Worst Features

Low profile tires not good in snow and difficult to tell if they are low in air, must clear snow on wind deflector to open hatchback, could use more insulation as you can definitely hear the wind and road noise, needs much more storage compartments, back seat is not very roomy but it's a small car.

2007 Ford Focus ZX4 S 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Nothing on this car is automatic - not the shift, nor the windows or the door locks...but that's good for someone looking for economy. It will get you where you are going and is very good on gas. Be sure the gas cap is on tightly or else fumes can come into the car. NIce small compact car that's fun to drive. Thye extra safety package is nice too.

2007 Ford Focus ZX4 S 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

We bought a 2007 Ford Focus S base model in Nov., no p/w or locks, just a plain jane get to work car. With only 6,400 Miles on it, the headlights have dimmed a lot, dash lights dimmed, battery light comes on. Replaced battery after getting stuck on the side of interstate, and still have the same problem. Its sad when you have to have your vehicle serviced at only 6,400 Miles for powertrain prolems. Do not buy this car unless you go and get a 2008 model that is showing to have better build quality! But on the other hand, if you don't have a lead foot, it has great mpg.


Best Features

Great mpg w/out a lead foot driver, comfortable ride in town, sporty look w/ses model, good a/c system, wipers are very quiet, 6 cup holders, soft seats that sit higher for taller people, and large trunk area!


Worst Features

Better build (problem solved in 2008 models), quieter ride, better sound system such as pioneer or bose, more options such as automatic headlamps, drl (daytime running lights), standard cruise control and power windows/locks, xenon headlamp and led taillights option, etc.

2007 Ford Focus ZX4 SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I bought this vehicle new for the price and MPG. I bought the automatic and the engine has great pick up. No problem entering the freeways in the big city I live in. I've had this car over one year with not one problem. Great gas mileage and would suggest it to anyone for about any reason. Small but offers big benefits!


Best Features

MPG, handling, fun to drive, reliable, affordable, good sound system.


Worst Features

I like everything about this car. If I have to wish for something different guess they could improve the cup holders and add a rear interior light.
