2006 Ford Focus ZX3 SES 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


I purchased my '06 Focus new. Wanted Grey, hatchback, Stick, shopped around and got a 3 door SES with leather moon roof and winter package for $14000. I have had ZERO problems with it for 26000 miles, service has been excellent from dealer (even replaced a wheel with a good used one for free when I kerbed mine). The car is fun to drive, very reliable (Consumer reports rates it with Civic and Corolla), looks good and I have had a very stress free ownership. The Original Pirelli P6's (unusual size205/50 ZR16) weren't great and had lots of road noise. I changed all 4 due to a sidewall puncture @ 24K miles for BF Goodrich G-Force Sport which are much quieter and have much better dry traction

Best Features

Price & Handling, the car is fun to drive and has plenty of power for it's size. Winter package in Seattle is great with heated seats and mirrors. Ergonomics are great too especially with steering mounted audio and cruise control. Car holds lots with seats down. Drives better than all the competitio

Worst Features

ABS should be standard ( it is on all European cars!), side airbags should also be standard and not an option. The gear knob painted finish chipped off and it would be nice to have more aftermarket parts for interior and exterior. Original Pirelli P6's lots of road noise!! (Ford now has Kumho's)
