2005 Ford Focus ZXW SE WagonReview

Sporty — Sporty It's got a pretty good handling system on it. Pretty happy with the sound system for stock. I really enjoy driving it for the sake of it keeping up with my shifting, braking, and turns. I like the exterior looks, but would rather have a nicer color such as black or white. I however do not like the interior that Ford decided to go with, they could have gone sportier. I like the mileage it gets and the maintnance is simple! All in all a great car.

Pros: Fun to drive, Speedy, Stock sound system

Cons: Color, Interior

Cute Lil' Focus! — It not all that fast but its still zippy. It doesn't have very many compartments and the cup holders are stupid. It looks like a girly car- at least I think so. Its really comfortable for road trips and to sleep in... haha. Pretty good on gas if you don't drive like I do. But more than anything... Its cute!

Pros: comfy, cute

Cons: cup holders, slow

Ford Focus — Stock performance is good, but thanks to the aftermarket you cant believe the potential these cars have. The focus is everything you need in this day and age. The car gets great gas mileage, it is fun to drive, you can fit all your friends in it. I am currently in the process of personalizing my focus. I love my Focus!

Pros: Everything!

Cons: this car gets no street cred, which i bad news if your trying to customize

My Personal Viewpoint. — The handling is decent, acceleration is decent with just me in the car--typical small four cylinder. The build quality is so-so The appearance is good, especially if it is detailed, and you rid yourself of the stock wheels. Cost of gas and insurance is reasonable. When i first got the car it was fun, I'm pretty much bored of it now.

Pros: great gas mileage.  great seats, stiff suspension, fairly decent handling

Cons: very little power, at 45k it got rattley and weak feeling, no Tach, boring interior--which is why i painted it :)

Cheap & Fun — 5 speed manual is pretty quick for a stock car that gets 35 mpg. Car is light and handles well, not much as far as repairs, will go forever. Fun to drive but a pain in the ass to work on! Sounds good with an intake and/or exhaust on it.

Pros: Quick, fuel efficient, decent looking

Cons: Difficult to work on

Great Car!! — I bought this car used with 17,000 miles, and have since driven it up to about 53,000 miles. I have not had 1 problem with it yet, save the fact that the CD/MP3 player occasionally skips. This may be due to the previous driver, becuase I have not heard of the problem among other Focuses. The reliablility of this car is great, and if you change your oil on time and don't drive like a moron, you won't be fixing anything. The handling is excellent, the brakes and throttle are very responsive, and there is plenty of room to upgrade this car.

Pros: + Very responsive brakes and throttle.
+ Very smooth handling and turning.
+ Good MPG on both city and highway.
+ Very reliable, have not had any problems with it yet, and have heard others that have driven it more than I have and had no major mechanical problems.
+ Is American and not Japanese

Cons: - ABS is not standard on this car.
- A little more HP would have been nice.

Focus St Review — Though a watered down version of the Focus SVT which is the Focus RS of Europe the Focus ST is very strong for being a small sedan. This car has taken a massive beating in terms of getting rear ended and all I have needed was a new bumper. It's performance is second to none as it pops right off the line and can stop to match. Its handling is very well with the Macpherson suspension and the control blade IRS. Its appearance is very Euro to its twin over the pond though its interior is one of its own kind the only difference between it and its Euro Twin. Its easy on fuel and the repairs have been few and far between. I enjoy driving this car very much its a great starter car.

Pros: Great Starter Car, peppy, fun, styling and great for modding.

Cons: None

Greatest Fwd Sedan On The Market — I love this car, great gas mileage, enough power, and great handling. The only thing that could use some help would be the acceleration and larger wheels. The interior is great quality, nothing loose and excelent sound system.

Pros: Excellent Sound, SVT Suspension, Manual transmission

Cons: 16 in rims, could stand to be a little quicker
