I just bought an '07 Focus ZX3 S. I haven't run through a tank of gas yet so I haven't posted any FE results. I'll add the car to the Garage as soon as I fill it up and take some pictures.
I bought it because it had a good combination of utility, fuel economy and price (the $2500 rebate made the decision easy, plus the Ford dealer is a block and a half away.) However, I'm pleasantly surprised at the power that is available should I have a need for it. I haven't really opened it up yet since it's still breaking in, but I have plenty of confidence on the freeway.
I took the spare tire out to reduce weight since most of my driving is within 5 miles of my apartment. If I take a road trip I'll replace it.
i'm new too... that car a nice p-zev, preppy engine. light/weight @2600 pounds right? 26 city 35 hwy. Since there aren't so many focus's around here in this site, i hope you can be the 1st one to get your hands dirty ...
Ben. Welcome to GasSavers. I own a 99 ZX2, predecessor to the ZX3. I have been thinking someone should be on here wringing out one of those. Now we got him. Is yours manual or auto? I will be watching for you.
