2006 Ford Focus ZX5 SE 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
After reviewing and test driving small and midsized wagons for nearly a year, the summer 2005 sale price on this vehicle finally tipped the scale. I couldn't be happier. This car is fun to drive, very peppy with good road feel and still more economical to drive than most of the competition. It has more actual cargo room than many larger SUVs and wagons.
Available ABS, traction control and side air bags. Love the controls on the steering wheel. The ride and seat support is similar to that of a larger and more expensive vehicle. This car has a very strong air conditioner and heating system.
Back doors should open fully, they block access with some large articles. I'd really like to see LIGHTED controls on the steering wheel as well as an exterior temperature gauge.
