Radio killed the car
By LEH88 on


2005 Ford Focus ZXW SE 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


I had the car for about 4 weeks, left it parked for a week, came back the engine was dead, jumped it, it died again. Come to find out the CD/radio was bad, killing the battery. Two months later still waiting on a new CD/radio to be installed. Also my car came with no dip stick. Not sure if that was the dealer or standard practice, that cost $45. Otherwise the car has everything you need for the price. Even with the AC running it can keep up with the best of them on the Autobahn here in Germany. At 140KMs it is sailing along comfortably.

Best Features

I like the standard features, power locks, cruise control, roomy interior. Fits a family of 4 with two of them teenagers without complaints. Nice car for the price.

Worst Features

Improve the plastic interior, cut down the noise a little. Make the front seats a little larger.
