WOOO HOOOOO my people is here

Yep.. special ordered 2005 Focus ZXW SE with 5 spd, moonroof, side impact, and nearly everything important the SES has..........except (stupid me) lumbar. I waited 6 weeks.

Hey fellow wagon owners.... how loud, db guess is the wind noise in the car with windows up @ around 80mph? Mine is deafening. I've been thinking about going in to see if my windshield is glued down properly. I'm already geared towards (no stopping me now) fully insulating the headliner and under carpet with foil/foam/foil insulation (-19db, 4x25'/$65). I'm really upset at Ford over the lack of engineering that went into the body style change-- especially where road noise is concerned. I bought this car (my first brand new one) because I was so impressed with the complete lack of road noise in an Enterprise 2004 sedan I drove. I drove a Trailblazer right after the Focus, and that $30k hunk of junk had a lot of wind noise compared to the Focus.

Other than that... the Focus wagon is the only wagon worth looking at on the market in that price range. Nothing else comes halfway close to having enough room in the back to store a decent amount of stuff .

WAGON OWNERS!!
