2006 Ford Focus ZX4 ST 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


In January '09 I found this 4-door ST with manual 5 speed in like new condition with only 6.5k mi. and have been smiling ever since. This car makes me smile every time I fire it up and head out. Very responsive engine with nice low-end torque for a four cylinder, smooth clutch, great taut steering, tight, rigid feeling chassis, and sweet handling make this car a blast to drive. Feels, sounds, and drives European but for $1000's less. So far getting 25mpg around town and have not taken highway trip, yet.

Best Features

Sweet engine with nice low-end torque, great tight steering, sweet handling. Simply fun to drive.

Worst Features

Would be nice if certain non-performance related items such as tinny-sounding door lock mechanism, cheap-feeling interior lighting, and similar items were more upscale sounding/feeling...but, considering the performance value inherent in this car, these items are gladly tolerated.
