ZX3 Pitch Black
By desm0derek on


2005 Ford Focus ZX3 SE 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Bought this car after researching smaller models. Found it was designed by an esteemed designer. Looks are terrific and the finish is excellent as you would expect from a Euro designed car. Driving is a hoot and the performance is more than acceptable. I also managed to get 2 high back chairs in the large rear after folding the seats down. Economy is 30mpg at all speeds although if you use the power higher up it drops slightly -- 27ish. All in all I am very pleased with the car and actually chose this over the BMW 323 because of the price differential; the BMW didn't offer the extra edge to warrant the price. The Mazda 3, Nissan, Toyota and GM vehicles were a bit lacking in quality.

Best Features

The dash layout is cool, but the previous year's was better. The seats are comfortable and the vision is excellent.

Worst Features

Bring in the new Euro model.
