After 3 Years, Still Love It
By Mikey on


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


I have seen people review this car as underpowered. What did they think they were buying? It is an economy car. Duh. This is a good looking car that is fun to drive, and has a well designed interior. The car is comfortable, the steering tight, the mileage decent, and it has been very reliable. We have not had a single problem in almost three years. The noise at highway speeds is a little more than I would like, but that is my only complaint. It is easy to park because of its small size, but the interior is roomy enough. The trunk is good sized. The Pirelli tires grip great. Fit and finish is excellent.

Best Features

Steering wheel mounted radio controls. Riding position/seat comfort. PZEV. Who would have thought that CA would not require the bi-annual smog testing. One less annoyance in my life!

Worst Features

Build a hybrid! Improve sound insulation.
