I have a 2003 ZTW 5-spd with 255,000 miles I bought new and it has been one of the best cars I ever owned. Having an extra foot of cargo length, no taper in the hatch or roof(like the current hatch) AND a flat load floor with no lift-over made it much more useful than the Escort GT it replaced, it gets decent mileage and has been very reliable. It's not dead yet either as it will now serve as a winter beater and 2nd car as it still runs well. It was always fun to drive especially after I added the SVT header and re-timed the cams for more top end HP.
I just couldn't bring myself to buy an SUV or crossover so I bought a 2013 SE hatchback because that's as close as I could get to the wagon. The dealer said he regularly gets inquiries about Ford bringing back the Focus wagon and believes he could sell every one he gets.
