2005 Ford Focus ZX3 SE 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Overall very pleased with my purchase. When looking to buy any model or year of focus be sure to check condition of bottom of doors interior and exterior especially behind rubber gasket that ford loves to use on all focuses. I didn't and was later surprised by the corrosion I found. Consellation is it's relatively minimal and can fix it myself. Ford will not warranty the corrosion even though it's clearly a design flaw. Common problem with the focus according to reviews all over the internet.
Smooth ride, gear box, responsiveness handling.
Corrosion issue behind rubber molding used on bottom of doors. This is clearly a design flaw.
