Advice: ResearchI have had my Focus since May 15, 2001, and this is the best car I have owned in my life. I know that when I drive in the fog, on the highway or in the mountains, my family and I will be safe. I don't know what this guy Ashanti is talking about. Maybe he uses his car just to race or whatever, but that's what happens when you put alot of hope in a vehicle and don't test drive other vehicles. Secondly, he obviously didn't do any research. I researched everything on the Focus for three months and did a test drive on the LX and ZX3 (approximatey 1 one apart from each test drive). Next time, YOU, ASHANTI, need to take some extra time in choosing a vehicle.

Advice: www.focaljet.com is a great online community to research this car.First Off the ZX3 is a different model than the LX Ashanti. ;) I have had my ZX3 since January of 2000. This car is just straight up fun to drive! In my opinion the Focus models are great values and offer an individual who enjoys driving a package which is hard to beat.
