I bought my 2005 focus in February. For the most part I like this car. the size is perfect for me. The acceleration is just as good as the v6 F150 I traded in. I think the car has enough pep, but if I could afford it I would get a turbocharger for the extra kick in the pants. I think the styling has improved greatly from the previous year. The audiophile radio is almost as good as the aftermarket system I had in my truck. I wish I could get just a tad bit more bass f/ the subwoofer. I get 28-30 mpg highway. I would recommend others to buy this car. The mazda 3 is a more attractive car but I liked the test drive in the focus so much that I never went to the mazda dealership.
My gripe is the dealership I bought it from. The sales manager was pushy and intimidating and the detail dept stole some of the aftermarket electronics out of my truck. I have been back to the service dept atleast once every week or two. Nothing mechanically major, just a modern convenience that is not working. The trunk will not open more than half the time when using the dash button or remote - I believe this is a dealer caused problem not factory. I will be going back for the 5th time next week over the trunk issue. I have already complained to Ford's customer service over my sales experience and will be complaining about service next. The service dept however has been really nice, but this issue needs to be resolved.
I plan on trading this car in when my warranty is up for a 05 mustang or escape, depends on gas prices and my money situation. but I will be taking my business to the dealership I should of went to in the first place.
