2006 Ford Focus ZX4 SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Review

Like the car overall except the city fuel mileage stinks. Not using the A/C 21 is tops and in heat of summer using the A/C anywhere from 16-18 mpg. Have gotten 32 on highway, but seldom take trips so mostly the mileage is bad. Also has annoying "feature" when accelerating the A/C compressor shuts down momentarily (Ford claims this is normal for performance reasons which is nothing but a crock.). This is annoying when it's 110 or more outside in this stinking Arizona desert heat. Like 99% of the newer cars today, the design is rather ugly. Small wonder I drool over the classic car shows and their displays. I think Ford needs to make 4 cyl. cars that give decent mileage.

Best Features

Performance is good for a 4 cylinder automatic. Fun to drive and reasonably comfortable.

Worst Features

Eliminate cutting out of A/C compressor upon acceleration and improve in town fuel mileage.
