2005 Ford Focus ZX3 SE 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
My car is the basic S model with air and 5- speed; I bought it as a daily commuter as I drive 120 miles a day for work. Runs well but has had transmission problems beginning at 50 miles, the shifter cable keeps falling off at the transmission, three times now, the dealer keeps "adjusting" the cables but I know that there is a design flaw with the plastic connector. Also the drivers seat frame broke requiring a new seat back to be installed.
Good fuel economy, fun to drive. Good looking little car.
