I'm in the market to buy a focus wagon, and I wanted to know if the wagon had an option for a sunroof..??

I'm finding it very difficult to track down 5-speed wagons, but I've find a handful in SoCal to look at.

seen about 4-5 loaded 5 speed wagons around me for sale, they more pretty fast and never forsale for more then a week.

just don't compromise on what you want though. sun roof cant really be added afterwards and a MTX swap is kinda expensive and a pain to do.

did that with my 04, ended up costing me more in the long run.

Since you're in Cali, try and track down a 2.3 manual 5speed wagon with a sunroof [deviltail] from '03 or '04
(probably a super rare combination!)
That's actually what I'm really looking for! They come op once about every 8 months or so.

It MUST have,
- 5-speed
- Cruise control
- NO TAN INTERIOR

Other than that, I don't really care. I would like to have a sunroof, but it's not a deal breaker. as stated, I could always add a rag top :). Also, I wouldn't really care if it had a Duratec or a zetec in it.

I'd poop my pants if they had ever come out with a Kona Wagon! lol[ninja]

looks like they edited it... When the ad first went up, it said it was rear wheel drive too!

I also have a manual transmission with sunroof. I found it by searching on Autotrader.com nationwide. I'm in Virginia and found my car in Buffalo, bought it sight unseen with 11k miles.

Here, for example, is a red 2002 with 83k miles with leather, stick and sunroof, $6700 in Seattle.

How did you get the car to you? Did you drive it back or have it shipped?

I was hoping to find a car near a Southwest destination -- because Southwest flies out of our airport -- it was $75 to fly up to Buffalo. The return was a fun road trip.

Before buying, I asked a lot of questions over the phone. Mine was for sale at a tiny Ford dealer, and it didn't take long to get a reading on whether the guys were honest or not. That was 2.5 years ago, and I'm still loving the car.

I've found a hundred or so 5 speed Wagons (not counting the z5s) so they're around if not exactly close to you. I'm looking for a specific 5 speed wagon, but am in no hurry.
