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


My wife and I bought this car since it was exactly 14k. Corolla and Civic were more expensive and Sentra had worse mileage. I did not want another Accord because of the price. I have had this car for about 3 yrs now and now have 103k miles on it. I never changed the tires until one blew up at 102k, Jiffy Lube messed up my gas line due to a gas filter change and I had to get the entire gas line replaced. Other than changing oil, trans oil, coolant, tires, serpentine belt..no major problems. I would recommend this car to everyone. I drive 170 miles everyday and get about 33-36mpg. Why would I want a hybrid giving me 40k and costing me 24k?

Best Features

Gas mileage and low maintenance costs.

Worst Features

Seating should be bettter. I already noticed that the seats in the 2008 Ford Focus had better lumbar support and I got about 42mpg driving on the higway! Alas, it was a loaner from the dealership.
