2006 Ford Focus ZX4 S 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


I traded a 2001 ZX3 for this 2006 SES. After driving this car for a year now, I think overall I wish I would have kept my ZX3! The build quality was MUCH better on the ZX3 but the SES has more power. There are some annoying squeaks and rattles that were a non factor on the ZX3. I don't know why Ford would not make the seats that are standard on the ZX3/ZX5 standard on the SES. These have much better side bolsters. Don't get me wrong, I like the SES. The steering feel and handling are great. The ride is not too firm. The Sony Audiophile system has great sound and the auto transmission is smooth shifting.

Best Features

Sony Audiophile stereo and the powertrain. The steering is just as good as cars costing thousands more. I can't stand over-assisted steering

Worst Features

Terminate all Quality Control employees at the Warren MI assembly plant. They must sleep on the job!
