I currently own a Focus Zetec 2010 which I recently bought second hand. Shortly before this I have a 2008 model Zetec which had a major fault and therefore I exchanged. I have read in many places that the Focus Zetec suspension is setup as “Sports Suspension” for better handling. Although there seems to be some difference with Zetec models since 2008. My previous 2008 mark 2.5 Focus Zetec model RJ58LNW listed the suspension on the Etis Website http://www.etis.ford.com under vehicle check as “With Handling Suspension” and “with standard rear shock absorbers”. This had the standard 16 inch alloys normal (non blacked out windows) and the seats with the black vinyl stripes on the back. My new 2010 Focus Zetec has the more normal looking seats (without the stripes) and 16 inch wheels. On Etis it says “with standard rear shock absorbers” and “standard suspension. Does this mean they have downgraded the suspension? It seems the 2010 Zetecs with the blacked out rear windows and 17 inch alloys are still listed on the Etis page as “with handling suspension”. After some investigation I have found that all Focus Zetect 2008 -2009 show as “handling suspension” on Etis. But all standard 2010 forward Focus Zetec say standard unless it has the blacked out windows and larger 17 inch wheels. I phoned up the ford technical helpline 0906 5533 447. They just said the suspension was the same for each model and only changed for the ST model. He said this was just marketing speak on Etis. Can anyone help do all Zetec have Sport suspension? What does “handling suspension” mean? Anyone clarification would really be appreciated.
