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


I bought this car for $13,100 (ZX3 SES with upgraded sound system, side impact air bags, moonroof) July 2nd, 2005. Since then I've put 11,000 miles on the car and couldn't be happier. It has a lot of pep and handles the corners great. I average about 31 mpg at about 80% highway driving. I thought it would be a little higher, but I heard no cars ever truly meet what is posted on the car by the EPA, so no real concern.

Best Features

6 CD changer, moonroof, EXCELLENT sound system, hatchback (has really helped with moving).

Worst Features

There isn't a real good place to put your cups when driving, wish the duplicate control were ON the steering wheel, not on a lever to the side.
