What I Drive: 2005 Focus SE ZX4

I am a Ford girl. All I have ever driven are Fords. I started with an '88 Tempo (got me through high school), then a '93 Escort LX wagon (got me through college), then a '98 Escort SE sedan (first new car), then a '02 Escape XLT 4x4 (second new car), and now I have a '04 Freestar SEL minivan (hey, I have kids), but I did get a Pioneer AVIC Z2 with Sirius for the van :) Anyway, the gas crunch has me going to test drive an '05 Focus SE ZX4 (automatic) tomorrow morning. If I like it, I will have my sixth Ford in nearly 15 years (ok I just made myself feel old saying that!). My husband (Ford F-150 XLT 4x4 with several nice mods) is skeptical of this action, but nonetheless he found this site and sent me a link. At first I was worried that it would be filled with modders who all drive stick, but so far I've seen a decent mix. This car will be the daily driver (25 miles one way to work is KILLING us on gas!), but I also wanted something fun. Can't afford a new one or I'd be all over that! I do intend to take my AVIC Z2 out of my van and put it in the Focus, though (should be alright - Focus has a double-DIN stereo) - anyone have any experience with that?

I just realized that I have a LOT of parentheticals in that paragraph, but I can't think of anything I want to delete! Oh well :)

ETA: The Focus I'm looking at tomorrow has the upgraded alloy rims, 15" wheels, cruise control, audio controls on the steering wheel - useless with my Pioneer, but oh well - power brakes/windows/doors, remote keyless entry, and tachometer. Oh, and 34,500 miles.
