I bought the 05 Focus ST, and I tell you I am surprised with how much I like this car. I didn't like the styling very much of the previous model, but '05 I think gives it a better look, inside, and out. The ride is great, power great. Content for just under 19 grand is excellent, has everything I wanted, and a few I didnt know I wanted. I would recommend to anyone that told me they were looking at one.
Well I like the 6 in dash CD, moonroof, telescoping/tilt wheel, 2 cup holders in console while having 2 bottle size holders for each front door. There are a lot of little features that you usually see in more pricey models.
More storage cubbies, maybe under a seat, more storage in the console, and more than 1 cupholder for backseat. Shorter antenna, or move to back like on the Mazdas.
