Fun, Fast but squeaky
By nickmbb on


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


Its a nice fast city run-around car. Great on gas and is fun to drive. On the highway, it drives smooth at high speeds. Had it for 6 years now and haven't had any mechanical problems (except that squeak).

Best Features

Excellent gas milage, very good front window field of view, a lot of head room (I'm 6'6"), large trunk compared to other cars of this size, easy and fun to drive. Has a nice "punch" in its maneuverability. Nice car for urban area, easy to park.

Worst Features

Not the greatest motion stability, rides bumpy. It developed the famous rear side squeak that mechanics can't seem to fix since they can't see any damage when they look for it.

My mechanic found a brake cable that was "rubbing". He must have lubed it 'cause the squeak is gone.
