2005 Ford Focus ZX3 S 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
This vehicle has been fun to drive for our whole family. I bought it for my son as a starter vehicle but all of us enjoy driving it. The price was $12,000 including tax, title and license. It gets over 30 miles to the gallon and has quite a lot of pep for a 4 cylinder vehicle. For the money, I haven't been able to find anything close to it in performance.
The zip of this car is surprising and fun.
I would like to see side impact air bags as standard equipment for all vehicles.
