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


I drove my Focus for just shy of three years when it met a premature death in an accident about a month ago. Honestly, I liked the look of my car and had a lot of fun with it. Unfortunately, my transmission failed at 37,000 miles just beyond the when the factory warrenty expired requiring a rebuild. Two months after the the transmission fiasco, the front driver's side wheel bearing woreout. Also, the CD player was rather tempermental. It only worked when the temperature outside ranged from 60-80 degrees. I'm not very sure what that issue pertained to as it seemed to be a luxury concern compared to the other required repairs to a new college grad with student loans!

Best Features

LOVE the trunk space! Gas mileage is pretty good as well.

Worst Features

Too many costly repairs for a car with less than 50,000 miles on it.
