I would think that would be a great replacement for the Neon. That's pretty low mileage. I have an 03' Focus wagon and haven't had any problems. My parents had a 5-door hatch and regret getting rid of it as it was fun to drive and got good gas mileage.
I don't know a lot about the manual transmissions as they don't seem to be as common, Should be fine though if you don't mind shifting yourself.

Thanks! I'm still researching cars and I thought that the Ford Fiesta would be the ticket for my next new car until I saw how big they were. It wouldn't be much of an improvement over my Neon, space-wise.
Especially when my Grandpa owns a 2000 Focus Wagon, and there is enough room for my Grandma, his hunting stuff in the backseat, and her wheelchair and walker in the cargo area, and he weighs about 400 pounds. These cars impress me for all they can handle

I went from a 2003 Focus SE sedan to a 2005 ZXW SES and then a 2006 ZXW SES for the same reason. I love the extra space. BTW, the Wagon (ZXW) has a lot more room then the five door hatch (ZX5).
#622 of 637 Focus Wagon vs. Taurus Wagon.... Please Help!!!
Jul 22, 2007 (10:19 am)
My wife and I are planning another camping trip and need to rent a car as our old For Taurus Station Wagon (1995) seems to have severe transmission issues and we do not want to kill it.
We can either rent another Taurus Wagon or save quite a bit of money and get a Focus Wagon. I have done tons of research online trying to find comparisons of the storage volume of the two cars without much luck. What I have found are the following numbers:
Taurus Wagon capacity:
38/81 cft (rear seats up/down)
Focus Wagon capacity:
36/55 or 73 cft
My problem lies in the 55 or 73 cubic foot difference as it is quite a lot. Does anybody know how a Focus Wagon compares to the Taurus Wagon? Maybe somebody has experience loading both cars... I know that the Taurus has tons of space but how much smaller is the Focus Wagon?
Thank you so much in advance!

Maybe the 55 is for the hatchback and 75 is for the wagon. Just doing a crude measurement for my hatchback gets me in the ballpark of 55.
#624 of 637 2001 wagon repairs to brakes and bearings
Dec 03, 2008 (9:43 pm)
there's a major problem with the rear brakes - apparently the hand brake cable is seized in the rear brakes and this has influence on the bearings. Has anyone had any such experience? This will be quite expensive to fix but according to mecanic car can't be driven without repairing. My problem is that I want to change/buy a newer car and this is happening at a very bad time. Car is 2001, has been great up to now and has 232000kms so its time I feel to get something else. Anyone else has kept a 2001 wagon longer?
#626 of 637 New Ford Focus Wagon
Feb 22, 2011 (6:46 am)
I want a station wagon. Not a crossover, not a hatchback, just an old fashion long-bodied affordable station wagon. Why aren't these made anymore? (I know Toyota has the Venza: too expensive. Subaru has the Outback: I had a lemon Subaru once, so won't get a Subaru again, plus The Outback is no longer a simple wagon, in my opinion.)
Is it true Ford Focus has one? If so, when will it be available?
Thank you. My dogs and I are waiting...and waiting.
