  • I grew up in Wayne michigan next to the plant that built these. We have owned many focii since they came out. My mom's 2005 zx4, 2012 hatchback, 2018 ST, my brother's 2003 SVT, my 2002 zx3 and my 2005 wagon. These cars run and run forever. The only issues we've ever had were alternators and worn out clutches. Thats it.

  • tq steer is fun

  • Hey James, you forgot to mentions the Focus Mk2 RS500 also came with a special front suspension design called the Revoknuckle. The same technology used in the 2017 Honda Civic Type R. Look into it

  • No mention of fords dirty little secret of the dps6 transmission? They brought it to market knowing it was horribly flawed
