Hi everyone,

I'm Mike, and we just had delivered to us today our 2005 Focus ZX4 sedan. Our previous ride was a 1994 Explorer, but too much in maintenance and fuel costs. Just over 78,000 miles on it, great deal, well maintained, driving it home, LOVE IT!! Here she is:



What I got to do now is get to know it INSIDE and OUT!! I'm not a mechanic, but I like to know if something goes wrong (if it does) what it is specifically before I take it to a shop (and I have a very trustworthy shop) I do like to tinker around, so I'll be doing simple fixes myself!! Thanx everyone.

Ha ha, thx. Though I love the stock sound system I do want to get something more powerful for it. Also replace the stock wheels for something sportier, and finally make the interior more kid proof (it's our family car) :D

Welcome to the site.

We can help with the system for sure. Just start a new thread on the Electronics board and state your budget. We will go from there.

Hey Ranger,

Mostly gonna be a daily driver. I do want to get some tinting for the windows. Not too dark, but want that. Upgrade the sound system, dump the stock rims and get something sportier looking.
