2005 Ford Focus ZX3 SE 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


I bought this car brand new for $12000 ,3 door hatch, SE with sport package (fog lights, leather steering wheel, aluminum wheels, arm rest). I wanted to buy quick, so I took the best hatch they had that time. Unfortunately my car doesn't have tilt wheel and cruise control. I survive without both but still want them. The only thing which calms me down - Focus steering wheel tilt isn't enough anyway. Oh yes, and the cruise control could be dangerous.:) I had one problem over the year - my car started to move while in Park. It was fixed under the warranty but took 2 weeks to complete. I had a loaner for these 2 weeks. I made several long trips in any weather conditions. Noise level is low, seats are ok, power is adequate.

Best Features

Good power, good MPG, practicality (hatchback!), nice suspension, MP3, electric mirrors. Automatic transmission works very well.

Worst Features

Make tilting wheel standard.
