Affordable Ford Fun

2005 Ford Focus ZX3 SES 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
My SES is nicely equipped; it has just about all the options you can order. It handles like a jungle cat on a chase. I'm very inpressed with the quality and comfort this auto presents. The fit and finish is excellent. Whether you are driving or just admiring the ZX3 you feel the tingle of ownership. It is a fine Detroit piece of workmanship with a look of things to come down the road. It is fun driving that is affordable with many creature comforts.
Passenger and cargo design is tops. Handling, economy and the optional Sony sound system are real plusses.
Better engine performance. Better and more sensitive brakes with disc brakes (in the rear) as standard equipment. Upgrade the sound proofing, especially at rear portion of the auto. The 5 speed shifter mechanism could be of a shorter throw with better synchros through the gears.
