I'm very happy with my Focus ZX5 SES!!

2005 Ford Focus ZX5 SES 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Review
This is a really nice small car. Four adults can be carried comfortably with plenty of room in the hatch. It has a rather tight "European" type suspension that handles great with the 16" Pirelli tires. Just a bit harsh on chuckholes, but a very good ride most of the time. Gas mileage has been as predicted on the window sticker at 26 city/ automatic. Since our temperature averages about 40 degrees (F) in November the milage has lowered to more like 22 or 24 city. Still very good! Lots of power and pick up. A joy to drive. The 6 disc CD player is of better than average quality. My Alpine in the other car outperforms it, but not by that much.
Favorite Features
Looks! I got the darker red with alloy wheels and 16" Pirelli tires. It's really sharp with the new 2005 less severe looking front end. Power! Lots of power and pick up. Comfort! The seats are very supportive yet comfortable. Handling! excellent response.
Suggested Improvements
None really. It's a really good choice!
