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


As far as I'm concerned...I think that Ford has a excellent car in the Focus. It has a lot of pep, and gets good gas mileage. I've done two tests so far and have reached 32 mpg on average. Thats about 70% stop and go 30% highway. You can pay 3-6K more for a Honda or Toyota ... but what you are really paying for is the history that it's reliable. I'd take the 3 year 36,000 mile warranty then my chances afterwards...and pocket the $6,000.

Best Features

6 CD changer, moonroof, upgraded sound system, and the way it takes off with a stick shift.

Worst Features

I'd like to see the PZEV engine on all Focuses for the environment.
