Ford Focus: A great starter car. Affordable and reliable.

2005 Ford Focus S

The Ford Focus is a great starter car for a teen, but also good for someone looking for a reliable compact car. The engine is zippy and will feel like it's got more power. There are ample cup holders and other features that make traveling convenient. Unfortunately, this model does not have cruise control so long trips can be tiring for your foot. I would purchase a Focus again.

2005 Ford Focus with 6 Inch Speakers

2005 Ford Focus S

I have a 2005 Ford Focus that is a teal color and has 6 inch speakers in the trunk. There is nothing wrong with the car other than the fact that the engine sounds loud due to high revs for the battery to have enough power to support the speakers. We have had the car for almost 10 years now and it is currently at around 150,000 miles.

My vehicle is amazing except for the compactness.

2005 Ford Focus S

I have quite a few issues with my alternator and internal connections. . My car is great on gas I get 36 mpg highway. It is very small and I am six foot so sometimes I do not feel as if I have a lot of space . Great trunk space . Small backseat area . I wish my car had an aux cord or ability to bluetooth.

Ford Focus the undefeated

2005 Ford Focus S

Ford Focus can withstand pretty much anything and has been driving strong for years now. I recommend this car to anyone and it's great on gas! It's also cheap to fix. I can go anywhere with this car! I love it so much! The mileage can go pass 200,000 and still run like it's new.

Feelings for a ford focus.

2005 Ford Focus S

There is a slight gas smell after you start the car, in the car. Also, it is very noisy, at least the 2005 model. I am not sure if this has to do with the age or miles of the car, or if it would carry over to newer models as well. Overall, it is fine. The hatchback is nice.

- Kelsey W

Comfortable and Reliable.

2005 Ford Focus S

This car is very reliable. It gets me where I need to go without any concerns. It is also very comfortable to ride in. I recommend this car to individuals who are looking for a good, reliable car. If anything goes wrong with it, which is rare, it is a cheap and easy fix.

- Emily P

Reliability and performance.

2005 Ford Focus S

With all regular oil changes and maintenance done this car has surpassed my expectations and for being 14 years old is still very reliable it has 155,000 mike's on it and still performs well I drive back and forth from AZ to ca quite often and I never worry.
