Not for tall people
By John Smith on


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


I have owned this car for 5 days now and I have been trying to figure out how to get rid of it. Don't get me wrong, it's a fun little car if you are under 6 feet tall. I have experienced terrible back and leg pain from the driver's seat. I am 6'3" tall and go to the gym at least 3 times a week and in great shape. On the test drive and for a couple of days the car was fine then uncomfortable every other trip. Then had to drive 30 miles to and back from somewhere is when the excruciating pain began. This morning was a 5 mile trip to work and not less than 50 feet out of the driveway was when the pain began again. Please be very weary of this vehicle if you are tall!

Best Features

Gas mileage, cheap transport.

Worst Features

Think of Americans over 6 feet tall.
