2005 Ford Focus ZX5 SES 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Review

I bought this new '05 Focus in Nov. 2004. The performance and comfort are good. However, the claimed city driving of 26 is a dream. I constantly get 17-19 mpg for city driving. I don't use air conditioning, don't press the gas hard, nor brake hard. I don't drive with windows open. I don't drive with lights on in daytime. However, I can never get higher mileage. If I had known it uses this much gas, I would not buy it at all.

Favorite Features

Interior designs are good.

Suggested Improvements

Claim its real mileage (city 18 mpg).
