2005 Ford Focus ZX3 SE 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
OK, I have a cat named Chevy if that tells you anything. I swore I would never ever buy a Ford, but after test driving a Focus ZX3 SES I must say, I was floored. I ended up getting the SE model but love it just the same! It gets great mileage, runs great, is pretty zippy, and is all around a great deal. I must say, I will probably trade this in in a few years for another FORD! :)
I love all of the little extras that are standard, like the CD case holder. I am absolutely crazy about the sensor on the passanger seat that shuts off the airbag if someone under a certain weight is sitting in front (even though they shouldn't be in the first place).
