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


I bought my 06 Focus SE sedan brand new and the car has never disappointed. The engine is very peppy and have great all around pickup and performance and it makes a great sound. Gas mileage is alright. i get between 28-32 mpg in normal driving. This car is probably the best handling, most fun to drive small car on the market. You can throw the tightest bend at it and you can take it very fast, and with absolutely no drama at all. Yes, the a/c compressor shuts off during acceleration, but it turns right back on so i dont really mind. The only bad things about this car is the quality of the interior and it hydroplanes sometimes in heavy rain. The finish on the radio is coming off in places.

Best Features

Off the line acceleration, great fun to drive, humongous trunk, pretty well built (better than a Cobalt or Caliber, definitely), quite comfortable on long drives. Very reliable.

Worst Features

Quieter turn sigals, need to improve the interior and gas mileage, and better quality stereo system.
