2007 Ford Focus ZX3 S 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


We purchased this vehicle after owning a 2000 Focus LX. Our new coupe looked great in red with black cloth interior. We paid about $16k BUT were very impressed with the improvements made over the 2000 model. The interior quality is much improved, as is the sound deadening, ride, handling, and POWER. The DOHC 2.0L offers plenty of mid-range torque with an impressive intake growl. The brakes are good, but lack anti-lock. The stock sound system is adequate. The vehicle handles VERY well for its class; it is difficult to lose grip even in the wet. Replaced alternator at 48,000 miles ($220 from AutoZone), and a front marker lamp at 44,000 miles. Overall, we love the looks and performance.

Best Features

Intake note, equipment-to-price ratio, plenty of interior storage, sweet wheel and tire combo, great seats, decent sound system, lots of room in the back seat, even for a relatively tall person. Foglamps are quite bright. Lots of compliments on thestyling. Ice-cold A/C. Flex- antenna on roof!

Worst Features

Cries out desperately for anti-lock brakes. A few interior rattles at nearly 50K. Persistent squeak from left-rear, interior somewhere... Could benefit from 4-wheel-disc brakes. Tire-balancing issues cause vibration at interstate speeds. Could use more power, but I could say that about any car.
