Update on my Focus
By Don Arthur on


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


With a bit over 4300 miles on the clock the fuel mileage seems to be a little higher. This is an automatic and in-town mileage has improved from 18 using the A/C and 20-21 not using A/C to around 23. Highway mileage has been 32 in the past, no recent long trips to see how that is doing. Using the A/C in town seems to really bring fuel mileage down. Overall, the Focus has been a reliable car, good acceleration, comfortable and fun to drive. I'm a senior citizen and don't put on many miles a year.

Best Features

Acceleration when you need it, handling and overall comfort.

Worst Features

Redesign rear exterior to give better visbibility when backing up. Also, do away with A/C compressor shutting down on acceleration. This is bad here in the Arizona desert heat of summer with warm air blowing until the compressor comes back on.
