2005 Ford Focus ZX4 ST 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)

Review

The Focus ST is a good compromise on a sporty and fun to drive car with features, practicality and value. Visually it suggests performance, and it does perform well, but the high seating position and competent but long-throw shifter will disappoint if you are looking to maximize that aspect. There's a lot to like: power, torque, no-brainer heated leather seats, spacious, a lot of car for the money after incentives. On the minus side gas mileage could be better, highway noise could be lower, rear sight lines could be better, needs light for rear seats, upshift from 2nd to 3rd is notchy, all season tires poor in snow even with traction control, large trunk with small opening.

Best Features

Strong engine, heated seats, roomy for a small car.

Worst Features

Gas mileage, highway noise, light for rear seats.
