Overall:

Quick and easy option. Roomy for a coup, drives well. Only issue is middle console is loose. Drives better and gets same mpg as newer focuses.

This car is running great! Just took a two hour drive with no issues! I attribute it to the previous owners care of the car.

2005 Ford Focus ZX4 SE Review
GuruBLNTL says:
Nice little car. Rather noisy on the road, handles OK. Good for second car. Roomy for large items to carry, back seat folds down to more cargo space.

2005 Ford Focus Zx5 S — I loved to the look of this car, its small enough to street park and big enough to fit five. Its been great on gas and hasn't ever given me any major issues. This car will be missed! I hope I can find it a good home.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: great on gas, fun to drive

Cons: noisy on highway

Great On Gas — A little uncomfortable while driving long distances, but I also have a bad back. With the gas mileage being so great I did not have much to complain about. I owned this car for three years and have not had much trouble with the engine.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great gas mileage and very few problems engine wise.  The car is so quite when going over 60 mph.

Cons: Two accidents, one almost totaling the car.

Long Distance Driver. — I just loved the experience of driving it, very fun car. Never left me stranded or anything and runs smoothly.I just wish it had 4 doors, other than that perfect car, fits many things in the back. Gas wise its very economical I saved lots of money on gas driving this car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great cute car, very economical

Cons: two door car

Focus - A Few Months In. — Performs better than the car it replaced, but that was getting a bit tired. Great MPG, averaging 49 overall and so far nothing has fallen off. Does exactly what is required. For the money (cheap) I've been happy all the way.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: A bog stock Focus estate could never be described as awesome, it does the job.

Cons: The fact that I got the version of the radio without bluetooth

Not A Sexy Car, But Certainly Great For A Family Vehicle. — This car has been our mainstay vehicle for local driving. Great for city driving and quite reliable. Turns on a dime. Maintenence issues have been with minor things. My wife loves the trunk capacity since it fits her massage table. The body still looks great.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: A great all around family car. Good body and runs great.

Cons: Suspension needs work and there's a problem with the wiper/washer blowing fuses. I'm constantly changing turn and brake signal bulbs in this car.

A Tough Little Car — I was looking for something a little better on gas than a mini van and I found it. Great little car and it was cheap to run and for repairs ( which was minable). It was a wagon so it was a little more roomier than a sedan which was very useful.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Reliable

Cons: no real complains, had to replace a throttle body, no big deal

Very Worthy Car At Cost, Handling, And Durability. — The limited times I have driven it yet were a joy. I have made small fixes with this car and it runs like a dream. It's very low maintenance cost car which is also easy to fix even for the average car owner capabilities.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great looking car.  Easy to fix and cost effective to own.

Cons: Small car wit a bit of a noisy interior sound when driving
