2005 Ford Focus ZX5 S 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
This is a great car for its price. The interior could use some redesign, for example you can't roll down the window when you have a drink in the door cup holder. It is extremely responsive - "its low center of gravity allows you to take corners faster than you realize", (at least thats what I said to the officer who pulled me over last weekend for taking a corner too fast). The sound system is beefed up compared to other cars in its class. Also the mods that are available are endless.
Throttle response. Radio maneuverability. Cornering, unique style.
Cupholders in the doors, does not come with a locking glove box - I wish it did.
