2005 Ford Focus ZX3 S 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
I bought the car in Nov. 2004. I had to take it the dealer to have transmission work. There was a transmission leak due to (slip boot cover?) had to be replaced. Transmission also had a rumbling noise when car reached speeds of over 35 mph. Apparently, the transmission was sitting on the axle and they had to take out the whole transmission and reposition it. I am glad I had the warranty to cover all of the repairs. Sometimes it is hard to shift (clutch gets stuck).
Good fuel mileage, good trunk space for the size of the car.
Make seats more comfortable, quieter interior when reaching speeds over 30 mph.
