What has Ford done to the 2007 model $%^&*(%^&*

A friend of mine wants to buy my 2000 XZ3. So I went to the dealership yesterday to have a look at the 2006 model.

OMG, what has Ford done to the Focus.

I love the curves of the dashboard on my ZX3.



When I sat in the 2007 model, I couldn't believe how cheap it looks now. And no curves. Everything straight, flat, flush.


It looks plain ugly compared to mine.
I would hate it every time I would drive it.

So I am going to keep my 2000 and Ford can keep the 2007.

I prefer the interior curves of the older model too. The front headlights and grill layout look a lot better too, in my opinion. From the side it looks like there's a weird hump in the front for the newer models. The newer sedans don't look so bad with it, but the hatchbacks... I don't know it just doesn't look right.

Okay, I will say that the street appearance packages help a little in making the newer ones look good. But I still prefer the older styling.

I like the older interior myself. I feel like it flows better and is more original. It doesn't look like every other car.

The new interior started in '05. I much prefer the new interior, as I feel its much more refined and grown up. I also prefer the new front end over the old ones, looks closer to what the euro focus looks like :)

Amen to that. 05~07 Focus Interior is really nice. I love it. I've seen older models' interior and it's just too odd ball. I love the 05~07 Front end better as well. This is one of the reasons why I bought a 05 instead of 00~04

I had a loaded 04 zts. Now I have a loaded 06 ST. This car is superior in every way to the pre 05. Ford fixed every complaint I had about the 04. If only it had 50 more ponies...

Another attempt to de-Euro the Focus.
