2005 Ford Focus

- Nice sporty little car. I feel good about having paid only $11,000 for a car that runs this well.
- First only does just enough to get the car moving unless you really punch it.
This is a really nice little car for the price. My wife has a late model Mercedes and I prefer to drive my Focus. I like the sporty sound of the engine. First gear is not so great, but second and third have good punch. I've read reviews on other little sporty cars and they have simular features, but are much too pricey. The Mini Cooper only has 115 horse power (the Focus has 130) but it costs thousand more than the focus. Plus the mini cooper doesn't even look cool. I slapped some rims and tint on my Focus ZX3 and you wouldn't believe the looks I get. You would think that I was drinving a Corvette or something like that. I even had a cute lady who was driving a nice looking, expensive car make eyes at me. My previous car was a Dodge Intrepid. The intrepid had more horsepower, and was quick moving out of a standstill. However, automatic transmission problems sent that car to the grave. I like the fact that my focus has a manual transmission so I don't have to worrry about expensive automatic transmission breakdowns. Also, the Focus just sounds cool. It has that sporty growl that makes me want to drive, and drive. All in all, I'd recommend this car to anyone looking for a nicely priced, sporty, fun to drive little machine like the focus ZX3....read morehide

I used to hate Fords, I always drove Chevy, but I decided to get this car b/c of the price, and now I have nothing to hate about Fords. This car is great on GAS MPG, and the 5 speed is smoother than my 05 Chevys' 5 speed. If you compare this car with the other cars in its class, it�s among the top 5 hatchbacks. And I used to read magazines about the older models and they received good ratings. I've had mine since last Christmas of, "04", and there is nothing wrong with the car. (8000 miles) If you�re looking for a good affordable car for a college student or teenager, I wouldn�t look at any other models of its class. I give it a 9 out a 10 but I have the factory stock basic bottom line one, and it�s still great....read morehide

This is a great car to buy. It has a strong engine, a wide variety of trim levels, relatively low prices, and a great look.

- fuel economy, price, options, cute, comfortable and roomy for such a small car!
- a little rough
I just got my focus and I love it. I'm a small girl, and the car suits me perfectly. I was very surprised at how roomy it actually was though!! I got the SES and the car has every option I would need. It's a great car for a college kid like me.

- Awsome dry weather handling, Great get up and go, sharp car, easy clutch
- Terrible wet weather handling
I have a 2005 ZX3. I am extremly happy with it. It is the basic modle with no frils exept cd player. I think i got and extremly good deal considering it I only paid 12.5k. The only problem i have with it is when it rains i can go all the way into Fifth gear still spinning tires. I now take off in second to prevent spinning out wich i do often in first. Other than that the stereo is awsome, handling is incredible, the seats are comfortable, and I out run my buddies 93 Z71 with a 350cu engine....read morehide
