Questions - ZX4 vs ZX5

I am thinking about buying an 04 ZX4 (sedan) vs 04 ZX5 (hatchback). I want 04 for the 2.3 motor with auto trans.

1) Are there any major differences in ZX4 vs ZX5 except for sedan vs hatch?

2) Does the ZX5 handle the same as ZX4? Ride quality, vehicle weight?

3) 04 ZX4 comes in S, SE, ZTS and SVT. 04 ZX5 only seems to come in one trim level. What is standard on ZX5.

4) Any other input one way or another pros/cons of ZX4 vs ZX5?

5) Are there any special pricing with Ford dealers for discounted parts, and for extended warranty?

first off there were no 04 ZX4's. The ZX4 model began in 05. Second all 05 models come with the 2.0 duratec motor, except for the ZX4 ST which has the 2.3.
1. in 05 the differences would be optional engine in the ZX4 ST. But other then that they can be equiped with the same things i believe.
2. The ride and handling should be the same, weights should be in favor of the ZX5 i believe, but it will not be anything noticable.
3. All non-ST models can come in the three model lines: S, SE, and SES
4. obviously the pro's of a ZX5 are that they were made in 04 and have the optional 2.3 engine in 04. But the 05 ZX4 also has the optional 2.3 and cool interior.
5. I think there are some incentives on both 04's and 05's but it varies by dealer.
Good luck and welcome to the boards.
