Not bad at all

2005 Ford Focus ZX4 S 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Definitely not a bad car. Only problem is when the alternator went up. Scared the crap out of me and seemed a little ironic that it happened with less than 20,000 miles on the car, but whatever. Not too impressed at needing new tires at 20,000 either. Partial blame on the dealer for not doing it and then the other half on myself for not knowing to ask. Handling is pretty good and parking is really easy. Not thrilled with the road noise at high speeds but I'll take that over having to turn off my AC to get moving above 30 mph in my old car.
Sitting up so high! I'm 5'1 and I love how much I can see. I'm also left handed and I love that the car is too. (If you don't know what I mean, see what happens when you roll down the windows or lock the door)
No cup holders in the door. You can't roll down the window. A center console might be nice. Gas release from the inside.
