2007 Ford Focus ZX3 S 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
I bought this car with 18,000 miles on it.
Had to replace water pump shortly after purchase (covered under warranty.) Airbag dash light comes on occasionally. Replaced left rear tail light bulb twice (so far.)
Tires needed replacement at about 25,000 miles.
Great gas mileage (33 mpg combination city and highway.)
Fun to drive.
Comfortable cabin (I'm 6' and I'm comfortable in it.)
Controls within easy reach.
Able to load hatch with oversize items (when seats folded down.)
Despite above mentioned problems, I love the car.
It's solid and dependable and I hope to drive it at least 200,000 miles.
Taking good care of it.
Exterior styling has come back in the 2012 models.
I've read other reviews about the airbag dash light (what's that all about?)
Cup holders somewhat hard to reach.
Also rear light bulbs burning out.
