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


I bought the Focus in June of 2005 brand new. The car rides, drives and handles great. The seats are a little uncomfortable when you're in them for a while, it also lacks leg room. The car has 49,000 miles on it and has been in and out of the shop since the 15,000 mile mark. Extremely unreliable! I can't afford the repair bills anymore and just traded it in. I paid $18,000 for the car a year and a half ago, the most any dealership would give me for it is $6,500. I DO NOT recommend a Ford Focus to anyone.

Best Features

Moonroof and steering wheel mounted radio controls are great.

Worst Features

Figure out how to make it reliable. Better materials on the interior (it has become a rattletrap). Should get better gas mileage, I drive all on the highway and average 25-28 (not good for a small car).
