2006 Ford Focus ZX3 SE 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
The car has been an excellent traveling car. During the summer I drive it more then in the winter but that's because I have a 4x4 80's Toyota for the ice. The gas mileage is good, 26 in the city, 35 on the highway for the most part. It has great acceleration for a 4cyl on an automatic and it is very fun to drive. I did replace the radio in favor of one that has full iPod capability in summer 2008.
Fuel economy, suspension, factory choice of tires for 2006, fold-down back seats for a huge trunk in a small car.
A tad more leg room would have been nice (I'm 6'3) and maybe the materials the seats be a little more big person friendly.
