2005 Ford Focus ZX4 SES 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


I definitely didn't imagine two weeks
ago that I'd walk away with a car for
less than $15k (after rebates and
discounts) as great as the Focus has
been thus far. It's comfortable, has
many of the options that I wouldn't
have expected in a "economy" car, and
most importantly doesn't feel cheap.
I bought this as a commute/winter car
because my Camaro wasn't cutting it,
and thus far the Camaro has sat parked
while I have enjoyed driving this

Best Features

The telescoping/tilt wheel was a welcome suprise to me at the price. The stock radio/cd/mp3 player was also nice (especially the speed sensitive volume).

Worst Features

I would have liked more storage (cell phone, sunglasses, and garage door opener have to go on a sun visor). The audio controls on the steering column can be tough to use, but at least they are there.
