Piece of junk

2005 Ford Focus ZX4 SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
I bought the Focus in June of 2005 brand new. The car rides, drives and handles great. The seats are a little uncomfortable when you're in them for a while, it also lacks leg room. The car has 49,000 miles on it and has been in and out of the shop since the 15,000 mile mark. Extremely unreliable! I can't afford the repair bills anymore and just traded it in. I paid $18,000 for the car a year and a half ago, the most any dealership would give me for it is $6,500. I DO NOT recommend a Ford Focus to anyone.
Moonroof and steering wheel mounted radio controls are great.
Figure out how to make it reliable. Better materials on the interior (it has become a rattletrap). Should get better gas mileage, I drive all on the highway and average 25-28 (not good for a small car).
