Still the Most Bang for the Buck

Vehicle2005 Ford Focus ZX3 S 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewI have owned four ZX-3's - a 2000, 2001, 2003, and the current 2005. The 2000 was buggy but way ahead of its time on handling and packaging. The current model is still ahead of the pack on handling and performance, returns good gas mileage as well, and is a reliable car. If you like to be involved in driving, and are on a budget, this (ZX3, S trim with aircon, stick shift) is the car for you! The current 100,000 mile power train warranty adds to the sense of security. I was able to buy a 6 year, 60,000 mile bumper to bumper Ford extended warranty for only $600. All of my Focii except the 2001 have been stick shift.
Best FeaturesEngine and suspension are tops.
Worst FeaturesPut the tachometer back in!
