"I have found this Focus ZTW wagon to be fun to drive. The styling is six model years old and still looks fresh. The engine is quite peppy and will deliver 34 mpg if driven on highway at steady posted speeds."
"I bought my Focus on ebay with 105k miles on it. At 110k, it lost an exhaust valve on the 4v Zetec engine. $400 and a weekend later it uses a 1 quart of oil every 1500 miles. I think the seller knew the engine issue. Oh well. Now with 130k, the sinchronizers are out on 2nd and 3rd gears. I just shift slowly as to not grind them. 32MPH, cold AC and a nice smooth ride for the money."
