05 ST or 07 SES

Finally gotta settle down with a Focus sedan. I got two options now: 05 ST, 13k mi, 12k OTD; 07 ZX4 SES, 2mi, 15k OTD. Both of them have options like leather, moonroof, weather package...need to choose one by Monday. Not sure which one is a better choice...

what he said, the only reason for buying the new focus sedan is either preferance over the hatch or PERFORMANCE!

13K miles is virtually new. So, better car for $2,000 less, the choice seems obvious. :)

da car for those miles on the ST is still new, you still get the 5yr/100k warranty, If i had ordered one and knew how to drive stick I would of bought the ST. I say buy the ST better all around and you'll regret it later because you'll want the ST Grille, Foglight bezels and black interior with the silver plate on the gauges. IMO ST is the way to go! wut wut!

ST would be better even if you got an 07 ST they dont have true SVT dampners and shocks in them any more which sucks. The 05 is a better deal the 2.3L is highly saught after.

No question, ST. I'd have one myself if it came with a hatch.
