Escort Convert

Greetings to the forums, grateful to be a new member. Former '99 Escort driver here upgrading to '06 Focus ZXW, just checking in. This is a very nice little wagon, I'm going to have fun with it.

Welcome, markwb. I can't imagine a Focus question you can't get answered here or on FJ.
Enjoy.

Yes, thank you for the reply. The seats are definitely an upgrade from the old Escort.

Thank you mainest and old1030. Quick question here, which engine does this car have? Is it timing belt or timing chain? Thank you.

I upgraded my 1994 Escort 2dr hatch 5 speed to my current 05 ZX4 5 speed.
and I love the focus.. still getting about 30 Mpg as i was in my escort.
the escort had 217,xxx on it when the Transmission fell apart and locked up.
