The real mileage is 18.7 mpg, not 26 mpg!

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


I bought this new '05 Focus in Nov. 2004. The performance and comfort are good. However, the claimed city driving of 26 is a dream. I constantly get 17-19 mpg for city driving. I don't use air conditioning, don't press the gas hard, nor brake hard. I don't drive with windows open. I don't drive with lights on in daytime. However, I can never get higher mileage. If I had known it uses this much gas, I would not buy it at all.

Best Features

Interior designs are good.

Worst Features
