Focus a blast!

Well, I gotta say, my girlfriends new 05 ZX5 Focus is a blast to drive. I'm really suprised by its power and handling. When I first saw the car I thought it looked cool but thats it. But after driving it, I was hooked. We have had the car for only a few days and I'm already driving it to work. I let her drive my 04 CRV. I told her because I put the down payment I get some driving privelages.Well that lasted for a day only.
I use to drive a 00 prelude and I have to say this car is more fun to drive. My girlfriend loves the car to death and so does my son. She does'nt mine modding it as long as I pay for it. Figures

Alot of people slam the focus. But, it always changes. When they actually drive one. Good purchase

The one truth about the focus; it is just a more fun car to drive than any of it's competitors.
