These pics make a sorry sight. Maybe they have reduced the Focus Wagon
because of the new Cmax, but this leaves the market with only one compact
wagon with ample space for five persons and their luggage, the Peugeot 307.
And you guys are worried about quality... It's a sad day indeed.
I have gotten the impression that Ford has been downgrading
the Focus for the last two years. I have the 2003 ZTW wagon with
almost everything they offered. I left out the leather and the
sunroof. You can't buy that car anymore. I notice that the 2004 and
2005 are not available with the 16 inch wheels and wider tires or the
Advanc Trac which got you 4 wheel disk brakes as well. Seems they cut
down on the options on the sound system too. Generally it looks like
they are making it into an econowagon hoping people who want those
options will go to the Mazda 6 wagon which is a good bit more
expensive and is essentially a Ford as well. I could be wrong about
that but they have certainly cut back drastically on the options
available. It would be interesting to compare this new one (the
photos) and the Mazda 6 wagon. It may be the same body.
