2006 Ford Focus ZX3 S 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
With the price of gas going through the roof, I found this car with 5400 mi. and still under warranty. It really did belong to a"little old man who just drove it on errands". After reading all the reviews I decided to buy this car. So far I am more than satisfied. With a 50/50 even split of hwy.and local, I am getting 29 mpg.with a hwy speed of approx.65 mph. I have noticed the a/c interuption during rapid acceleration as previously stated. I even did this during the test drive to see if this was a big issue. Even though I live in the TX heat, I don't feel this will be a problem. Time will tell.
Big trunk & fold down rear seats, lots of cup holders, dash trunk release button, automatic front seat airbag de- activation for children. Great Burgandy color.
Regular profile tires instead of low profile, quieter door locks when car put into motion, outside temp.gauge and locking gas access door for this model.
