2007 focus se

okay, so i was going to pick up a used 2003 zx3 but, after talking to the guy and after he told me he wanted 8600 for it i changed my mind and am more than likely going to pick up a 2007 3dr hatch se. it's a base model nothing extra so right now after taxes and everything it comes to 13k.

i got a few questions about this year tho.

okay first one, why doesnt the 5speed foci come with a tach? all the auto's have a tach but none of the 5speed ones i seen had one. whats up with that?

second, it has a 2.0 in it, thats the duratec right? good reliable motor?

what color?!?!?!

i can choose from red, black, silver and yellow.

i'm leaning towards red.

Def get the SES model.

If you're going to buy a new car, go big and get the ST, you will be MUCH happier w/ it.

And go black, it's the cleanest, and sleakest. mmmmmm

Power locks, windows, keyless entry, cruise control, side airbags, ABS, A/C, ATX, traction control, 6 disc CD radio /w steering wheel controls, tilt/telescoping steering wheel, matching color body side molding, and yes, it has a tach.

Add-ons:

PIAA 1500 fog lights, 16 spoke alloy Ford OEM wheels, window tint, and a chrome exhaust tip.

yeah i'm have a fairly low monthly income so the cheaper the better, all the extra power shit i could care less about. i havnt had power anything in any of my cars since my 88 olds. which is odd cause that was the oldest car i had but that thing was loaded. no ac is no biggie, i never use it anyway, i'm just really suprised that there is no tach in the 5speeds, oh well, maybe i'll get a nice little aftermarket one. not one of them huge 5 inch ones though. other than that i really just wish it had some actually wheels, not the lame steel ones.


hopefully this thing works out into my price range, cause i really can only afford up to 400 a month between car payment and insurance, and 400 is pushin it cause i really won't have any money to play with, which i'm not used to at all.

right now i'm stuck between red and black....
both look sick, i love the look of a completly blacked out car, but at the same time i love how the red looks with the windows tinted. i really like how the tail lights just kinda blend in with the paint too.


hopefully tomorrow i'll be driving my first NEW car!!!

There are two or three SE's at the dealership where I bought mine that have an ATX, but they don't have a tach.

Usually, you must have the "Sport Group" option on the SE to get a tach(Tach, alloy wheels, leather wrapped steering wheel.) However, it seems that Ford "threw in" the tach on some SE models. It was listed on the options side of my window sticker, but there was no additional charge listed for the tach.

Usually someone here is selling their OEM alloy wheels because they have put aftermarket 17, 18, or 19" wheels on their Focus. Also, I've seen several sets on eBay.In fact, there's a set of 15" 16 spoke alloy wheels with tires listed on there right now.

Which red? Infra or Dark Toreador?

Insurance won't be as high on an SE model vs. an SES. I don't know how old you are, your driving record, etc, but for an old fart like me, insurance is only $67 a month.
