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.

I drive my wife's 2000 LX from time to time when I gotta work on my Jeep. Fun little car, stick shift really helps with the 103hp SOHC...:D If we keep it long enough it needs wheels and some more power. But for the time being, my Jeep eats up my extra money for car mods...

Hi!

I'm a french driving a 1.6L black zx3. I bought it in 2007. This is my second car, the first was a golf mk3. I found this site with google. I'm not really good in english, so if you don't understand me, say it :p

Hey Everyone, my name is Brooke

I was happy to be able to find a site where I could learn all about my focus, because as of right now i'm lacking any knowledge about them so please bare with me [:D]

I have an 08 ses on the way (should be here in about a month or so.) I've been saving forever and very very excited to get it, this is my first official car so I plan to baby it plenty! Tips-on anything are certainly welcomed [:D]

hey everybody I'm Rob I have been reading the submissions, questions and answers on here for about 6-7 months. I used to own a 98 mustang GT and I loved it I have always loved Ford and when I saw the 02 svt's come out I knew that that was what I wanted to own, and by the grace of God I got to finally get one, an 04 Infra- Red 3 door, I love it with all of my heart and I am so glad that there is a quality group of enthusiasts that feel the same way. I went to tech school for 3 years and I thought I new a lot when I joined and I am just floored by the knowledge of the people on this site, I learn something new every day.
I love Focus Fanatics!
