Just traded an '02 Focus wagon that I logged 54,000 miles in three years with no repair problems. Liked it so well I bought another, this time an SES. The '05 is quieter, steers better, has plenty of pep climbing hills and mountains, and gets great gas mileage. I like the new dash layout. Would recommend to anyone who wants the most for their money.
The six disc CD changer has great sound, and I like the extra radio/CD controls on the steering column. Also like the addition of the sunglass and garage door opener storage.
