Top 5 Likes or Loves about the FoFo

hey guys,

so i saw the top 5 dislikes and decided id make my own thread with top 5 likes or loves. mine are as follows....

1. drivers position
2. steering response and nimbleness
3. gas mileage (with cams and no tune im still getting 24-25. but this is majorly because of my driving. shifting at 3k and barely running the gears out unless entering a freeway or the occassion fun)
4. styling and colors....i mean honestly a car shouldnt look this good for this cheap...its not fair to those hondas
5. ridiculously large aftermarket, with incredible pioneers doing things like 400whp on stock SVT internals and such

lemme know yours

Yeah i agree with the first post on most of it.

Seat comfort and adjustment
Steering wheel has good tough response
GFX (A.K.A. SAP) is an amazing package deal and makes this car even nicer
Potential for customization
Large aftermarket support

Pros: same as above
+ Nice stereo replacement options- easy dash to work with
+ Lots of room under the carpet for smuggling drugs
+ Better wagon than anyone else in the price range

Minuses: lots of wind noise in the 05 redesign, lots of road noise too.
- Not enough factory motor options IMO (FFS wagons deserve a D23!!)

Likes about the Ford Focus.
1)parts originally used in Ford Escorts
2)easy or low maintanence cars
3)small, sporty, and popular
4)used best in mountain highways with curves
5)reliable, don't depreciate in value too quick

Dislikes about the Ford Focus
1)barely no parts for CVH/SPI models
2)some unnecessary parts on the car is useless, take space and weight(Airbox Resonator)
3)Parts for some model of Focuses on ebay are a bunch of junky bs
4)Lower ground clearance that Escorts
5)California's bs emissions on the cars

Likes (SVT):

1. Bang for the buck, a VERY capable all around car. Commuter, AX, Track

2. The Brakes. They stop on dimes and give change.

3. Compared to other cars, inexpensive to repair and it will still run all day long with a BMW

4. Handling. Ease of driving like most front drivers, tossable just like a rear wheel drive

5. When people walk up and say "Is that really a focus?"

Dislikes (SVT):

1. The seat adjustments. You have to be a circus monkey to get the seat in the right position.

2. Oil pressure & Temp gauges. I hate having to look around the steering wheel to see them.

3. Passenger rear blind spot.

4. Torque- Not enough of it.

5. THAT turn signal "TICK TOCK" Sound... !!!!!!!!!!!
