#2 of 136 Easy entry seat
Feb 05, 2001 (8:21 pm)
I would love to have the option of upgrading my front passenger seat to a easy entry seat. That is , one where all you need is one finger to have the seat back flip forward and the entire seat slide forward.
I just had a passenger in my back seat tonight, struggle to exit from the rear. This happens all the time. Embarrassing.
#3 of 136 ALL WHEEL DRIVE ZX3
Feb 05, 2001 (10:59 pm)
I'd like to see an all wheel drive zx3 available that would be priced well under the Subaru Imprezza. For those of us living in snow country this would be an excellent alternative to what we have available now. I currently have a Subaru wagon but servicing is a pain since the nearest dealer is 60 miles away. Seems like rural America always has a Ford dealer nearby. I did buy an 01 ZX3 instead of a Subaru this time but kept the 96 Sub just in case the zx turned out to be a lemon. (the price of the zx3 made this possible-didn't need the trade in to afford another car) I actually like driving the zx3 more than the Subaru. I find the seating position much more comfortable. I agree with the previous posting that an easy entry front seat is a much needed improvement. If Ford really wants to make the Focus a true "world car" I think they are going to have to compete with the products offered by manufacturers like Subaru and Audi and try to do it better and cheaper.

i want a rebate for all the wasted time in the
ford dealerships waiting for recall work to be done
correctly.they need a better system to facilitate
parts delivery in a more timely fashion.
#5 of 136 Cool and Convenient
Feb 07, 2001 (2:27 pm)
I love this car, but I think the seatbelts are so inconvenient. I have to reach back to India to grab the dang thing. Also, I agree with the prior post about the easy entry, personally I would like to have it on the driver and front passenger seat. I always have to readjust my seat after I throw something in the back, it's a pain. Even my prior car, a very basic Honda Civic hatch had the easy entry feature.

Come on ZX3beast, a rebate? I'm still waiting for my stainless steel mug and I think my ZX3 was one of the first to get that recall fixed.
