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


I looked at all the favorites from Toyota, Honda, Mazda etc. and found that this little car was the best deal for the money. There is no way the other manufactures could compete with the price considering all that comes on this vehicle (SES), not to mention Ford rebates and incentives. This car is fun to drive, handles good, accelerates on a dime, and is good for long commutes. I am discouraged about the insurance though, a little high because of a high symbol rating. Will be interested to see how good the gas mileage really is. Overall though I like this car. Good buy.

Best Features

Solid air condition, Sony sound system with sub woofer, cruise control, power everything, radio steering wheel controls, 16" wheels, trunk space, fog lights, peppy engine and well thought out interior design.

Worst Features

Cruise control and radio steering wheel controls need to be illuminated at night, you can't see what you're doing in the dark. Front end suspension a little noisy. Visor mirrors could be lighted and the rear view mirror could be upgraded to dimming, temperature etc. capabilities on the SES
