The Ford Focus just may be the perennial sleeper car of all time, and proof that first impressions do indeed count. After all, it offers virtually everything you need when it comes to commuting or basic transportation: Great gas mileage, low emissions, relative comfort, and zippy performance. Granted, NVH is an issue, but at this price – with money stacked on the hood – you should be ashamed to turn away from the Focus just because the interior is a little loud.

Shoot. Turn the radio up, for goodness sakes. For 2005, Ford even restyled the Focus, giving it a more mature look, the same look that's on the 2006 model. This, plus rebates and special financing, makes the Focus a virtual no-brainer for the segment, especially with gas prices rising and the sky clouding over with soot. The Focus is, ultimately, one of the feel-good cars of the year: a good deal at the dealership, a zippy ride, with great fuel economy and virtually nothing emitting from its tailpipe in “green” states, such as California. Who needs a hybrid, anyway?

I got one like that...paid only around 13K for it new...there is nothing wrong with it at all...in fact, it has become a better car than it's previous brothers and sisters. Interior is much better designed...yeah it's all plastic, but who gives a fck...you're not gonna sit there and lick it. Last time I thought about it was when I wiped it down with one of those ArmorAll wipes to shine it up a bit...You certainly won't drive and look at the dash and complain "ohhh but it's plastic..."

For 13K, you can get a new car, support Ford, great mileage, get great looks...slap some 16s or 17s wheels and you'll turn heads...you don't even need all the cool bumpers and effects...

or you could spend 20K for Honda Accord and still turn heads - but you'll be eaten alive knowing that you are actually driving a rice, and it's a fact that Hondas are becoming "granny cars". Older Hondas were for younger generation mostly, but now even older people are buying them. I believe older people should drive Buicks and Cadillacs...nothing else. Now you don't wanna be driving what the old people are driving, do you?

I got my 05 zx3 SE for $10,400 out the door, plus an extra warranty (brand new, I might add, only had 500 miles on it because it was delivered)
It's not all about the speed.
