2007 Ford Focus ZX3 SE 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
After a trying three years of ownership with an 02 Focus, I decided to give it another go with an 07. I've had the car for a day so far. Performance is good, comfort is good, a very good value for the money. Long range reliability isn't promising, so get an extended warranty that covers more than powertrain - you won't regret it. My 02 was great until it 50k - it was all downhill for the last 22k miles of ownership with that car. With the 07's, the SE and SES are the best values if you want A/C.
Sport utility versatility with that sports car feel with econobox fuel economy. May not be the most reliable, but a good value.
Bring back the fog lamps, alloy wheels, leather wrapped steering wheel, and tachometer that were standard in all ZX3's from 00-04.
