2005 Ford Focus ZX3 S 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
I had a 2003 model, and I traded it in on a 2005 Focus. No other car was good enough for me. I tried the Honda Accord, and the Civic, and I just didn't like them. With the roominess of the Focus, and the way it handles, it won hands down with me. My fiancé is 6 foot 7 inches tall, and most small cars he does not fit in, but in the Focus he has room to spare. I LOVE MY FOCUS!
I love everything about the Focus, except the fact that they took away the drawer that I put my change in. I loved that drawer. They did however make more room for the drinks on the passenger side.
Add on some car seat anchors, that is all I can think of at this time. I think the Focus is the perfect small car.
