No major problems that I can think of. Put some wheel bearings in some, a fuel pump or two. We see them all the time but general maintence is about the only thing we do. Dont think Ive ever done a recall on a 2005 focus. There not the best looking cars and they are noisey going down the road but there cheap so you can look past all that. I would have one there good cars trans and motor are solid just keep it serviced and maintained.

The only problem area according to Consumer Reports (on the 2005 model) is the Electrical System, otherwise it gets good marks in all other areas. If the Focus is anything like the car that I think preceded it ,the Ford Escort...which was a nice and reliable car that served my GF well for several years...I'd say go for it.
