2007 Ford Focus ZX4 SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
First i will list all of the good qualities. It is fuel efficient, spacious, has an easy to operate radio, great for long distance trips, but its no Toyota. Now the bad, airbag light in instument panel has been on 8 times. Six times in '09 alone. apparently the techs can't get it right. My transmission went out at 61,000 and had to get rebuilt. The back door lock on the passenger side (which is rarely used) stopped working around 17,000 (covered under warranty). Road and engine noise is unbearable on a windy day. Thankkfully the radio mutes that out when played loud enough. Miles at purchase: 5541 Current Miles: 77100
Sound system, comfort, space, cost to own is really cheap. Just make sure u get the exted warranty to cover at least to 75000 miles.
The new focus isbuilt better however the passenger space is a lot smaller. Better engine is needed.
