Focus Zetec S 2.0 Tdci


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I'm new on here and looking for some advice. Basically I'm looking in to buying a new car. I have been looking at a 2.0 tdci Zetec S Focus. I was just looking for a few reviews from you guys out there that one one really? How do you find them?

I would really love an ST Focus or Fiesta, but insurance being 22 would be a bit more, plus I do quite a lot of miles 15,000 a year plus, so in reality the diesel is probably the better choice.

Any advice would be appreciated guys

When you say new, do you mean new factory order or new for you?

I have the titanium x which has the same 163 engine as the Zetec S. Very grunty engine same torque as an ST, but it does have a bit of a heavy nose on turns.

It will probably be year/2 year old. Ultimately it's just going to be a workhorse, that's why I'm going to hold off on an ST, so it just needs to be comfy, quiet, and have a bit of poke for overtaking. I'm coming from a golf 1.9tdi, so I'm guessing it will be fairly similar to that in terms of running costs?

Long term average in the car is around the 48 mpg mark. That will be about 75% motorway I reckon, get more if your doing a slower journey, like 50+ mpg if your stuck at 50/60 mph.
