Careful if you buy a manual 2005 ZX3

Vehicle2005 Ford Focus ZX3 S 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewI bought this car, took it on vacation and on the way home, the brand new clutch burned out on a Saturday. On Monday I was told the part was on a national backorder. It would be weeks before it would be ready. I was 800 miles from home. My dealership was awesome. They got Ford to pull the part off the assembly line. The reimbursed me up to a $1000, but not for my missed time at work which cost me another $500. I love the car, but I will not buy another manual after this.
Best FeaturesI love my CD player, how quickly it accelerates, and the maneuverability in tight places.
Worst FeaturesJust the field of vision when you look into your rear view mirror to the hatchback. I am tall, so I see more of the inside of the top of the hatchback than I do of the road. (And yes, I have adjusted my mirror many ways.)
