2005 Ford Focus Sedan ZX4 S 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Im in college. I was gifted this car. It was the bare bones model. It had an engine and tranny with the stock radio. The manual windows and locks were annoying but they worked. I replaced the radio and drove from 88K to 120K until i was rear ended and totaled. It gave me 0 mechanical problems. It ran and had A/C. It was great. It looked like shit(due to previous owner) but it got me everywhere with no problems. It was loud when going 80 on the turnpike but I didnt care. I had a radio to listen to. My passengers dealt with the the rear seats so I cant vouch for them. Comfortable, fun, great steering, great brakes, good mpg, good on tires.

Would buy again

2005 Ford Focus Sedan ZX4 S 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Bought my Ford Focus Sedan in 2004 with only 3500 miles. I now have 114000 miles on it. It runs like a champ. I get about 25 mpg around town 40 mpg highway. 29 mixed. Automatic. The only problem I had with it was the sway link bushings had to be replace. My Focus is strip down model, no power windows, no cruise control.
I had the cruise installed else where. It's been a fantastic car! I'll drive it till wheels fall off or it gets wrecked. It's very well maintained.


Best Features

Great gas mileage. Lots of power from bottom end to top end. Handing is outstanding. Cold air conditioning very cold!


Worst Features

Better looking interior. Middle ac vents don't stay in one place.

Review

I got into a head on collision with a drunk driver in a GMC Yukon while driving my '05 Ford Focus and walked away with nothing but whiplash and a few cuts and bruises. The entire front of the car was flattened, but all of the built in safety features worked and saved both mine and my passenger's lives. In another car, we could have easily died. The gas mileage could have been better, but this is a great car if you're looking for something safe, reliable, and sturdy.


Best Features

Safety


Worst Features

Slow pickup, poor gas mileage

Review

I bought my '05 Focus, used, three years ago. I was looking for dependable, cheap transportation for my Daughter.
90k miles later, I am Not dissapointed! Extreemly Dependable, low maintenance cost, high gas mileage (31 MPG in City), ang plenty of get up and go for a 4 Cyl.
Very smooth Automatic, with overdrive,
The interior and the Trunk are Huge, especially for a small car.
Plenty of Grocery Room.
Road noise is very noticeable, but what small car doesn't have that?

Overall an outstanding little car and YES, I would purchase another!!


Best Features

Large Interior and Cavernous Trunk. Perky 4 Cyl. Smooth Automatic Transmission.


Worst Features

Road Noise could be less. Cd Player doesn't last long, needs improvement.
