2005 Ford Focus ZX3 SES 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Review

Always had a love for hatchbacks for their design and practicality. Owned an '87 VW Scirocco 16V, but VW currently doesn't have the aggressive design I look for. For the price/features ratio, Ford Focus ZX3 is a great buy. $13.5k (+ taxes, registration, etc.) for a top-of-the- line '05 ZX3 says it all.

Best Features

Everything's at your fingertips! What blindspots! Distinctive clicks on the manual transmission. Steering wheel mounted radio controls -- awesome when you have 110+ songs per disc. Very willing engine, 5500RPM entering the freeway and didn't even notice. Love the optional sunroof -- take in the sun & keep that AC off.

Worst Features

Better sound insulation -- drone from the wheel wells at freeway speeds. PZEV environment-friendly engine at a cost of unexpectedly low MPG. Drum brakes on a ZX3 SES? Short travel telescoping steering wheel. Plastic hole covers keep popping out. Bring back the SVT or how about an SHO?
