2005 Ford Focus ZX5 SES 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


This is a really nice small car. Four adults can be
carried comfortably with plenty of room in the
hatch. It has a rather tight "European" type
suspension that handles great with the 16" Pirelli
tires. Just a bit harsh on chuckholes, but a very
good ride most of the time. Gas mileage has been
as predicted on the window sticker at 26 city/
automatic. Since our temperature averages about
40 degrees (F) in November the milage has lowered
to more like 22 or 24 city. Still very good! Lots of
power and pick up. A joy to drive. The 6 disc CD
player is of better than average quality. My Alpine
in the other car outperforms it, but not by that

Best Features

Looks! I got the darker red with alloy wheels and 16" Pirelli tires. It's really sharp with the new 2005 less severe looking front end. Power! Lots of power and pick up. Comfort! The seats are very supportive yet comfortable. Handling! excellent response.

Worst Features

None really. It's a really good choice!
