2006 Ford Focus ZX5 SES 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
I drive mostly highway miles, so I wanted something that was responsive and comfortable with good gas mileage. I got it with the Focus. No problem driving to and from work. My Focus is equipped with the safety package (ABS & side airbags), as well as traction control. I also have a six CD stereo, which has a great sound. It's tough to find a car with all that for around $15,000 after the cash-back offers. I recommend this car.
Safety package, traction control, 140 hp.
Just one thing bothers me...the plastic interior and exterior door handles are really cheap looking. Replace them or at least offer an upgrade option.
