Can't Find A Wagon -

Hello FF. IM kinda new here. I registered a while back. Can't remember If I posted anything or not. ANyway, Im finaly getting ready for purchasing a Focus.


After 4 decent years with my Escort Wagon, my transmission is taking a crap on me. For my next vehicle, Im trying to track down an inexpensive Focus Wagon in the East Texas area.

So far, I have found ONE and it is over my budget. IM hoping to find a used Wagon for around $8k or less (Max of around $200/month) If i cant find one, Id be willing to settle for a ZX5.

Can anyone help me out with my search?


Also, my local Ford dealer tried to talk me into their "Red Carpet Lease" today. Is this any good? Just sounds like another crappy lease to me....

Thanks,
Bob

The ZX5 is a great way to go but you'll end up losing that trunck space like in the station wagon.....not to mention you'll have a bit more sportier look.

I think it is the other way around, ZX-3 and 5 have zetec, I think wagons have spi and zetec depending on options?

Ok, I found a 2005 Zx4 w/ 11K miles for $10,000 at a Ford Dealership. ($11k-$1k for my trade in)

Hopefully Ill get it tomorow. I couldnt get financing tonight due to all the banks being closed.

Anyway, good, fair deal?

sounds good to me, Bubba Bob. the sedan ZX4 doesn't quite have the room that the wagon does, but the back seats fold down so that helps.
