2005 Ford Focus ZX4 ST 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


Purchased my '05 Focus last month and
so far I've been pretty happy with it.
However, there were three defects that
have been corrected. They forgot to
install one of the bolts that holds the
rear wheel well guard in place. Paint
defect on the hood and the passenger
mirror molding came loose. Local
dealer fixed them all. Must have been
built on a Fiday or Monday!

Overall this little car is very good.
The idependant rear suspension is nice
as is the handling and responsiveness.
The driver seat feels like it wraps
around you. Traded in my '03 Corolla
for it. The Corolla is jerky on the
road and hurts your rear after a long
trip. I hope the Focus can stay par
with reliability.

Best Features

Independant rear suspension. 16" Perelli tires. Slick 5 speed manual. Handling. Ride comfort is very good. Mileage is decent. Exhuast sound is nice. Stock stereo w/ six cd changer is nice. Telescoping steering wheel. Price. Worth a test drive.

Worst Features

Day time running lights. Needs a dome light (very dark at night in the back seat). Spare change holder. Outside temp indicator. Move the stupid looking antenna (it's right in the middle of the roof in front)! My 9 year old said to add side skirts, neons and NOS....
