It's an economy car

2006 Ford Focus ZX5 SES 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


I bought this car back in 2009, it had 60k on it at the time.
I jumped into this car from a 2002 Mercury Sable Premier that had an engine electrical problem I didn't want to pay to fix.
Going from a Premier with all the bells and whistles to this is really what made this car seem less than it is.
I am at 120k miles now with the only issue being shocks.
All four are bad.
Other than that brakes were the only other things that have needed changing.
MPG for me has been 25 city and 34 highway.
The car has road noise and isn't very comfortable but as I said it's an economy car.
It's a little slow but handles great.

Best Features

Handling is great. I love the hatchback. I get better highway MPG than the window sticker said I would.

Worst Features

Noisy. Steering wheel & mirrors vibrate at idle. Uncomfortable.
