2003 Ford Focus ZX3 (Boosta II)
Last updated Aug 6, 2008
I bought the car brand new in 2003 with the premium package. This is my 3rd Ford Focus. Wanted something with good gas mileage and something pretty easy to work with. I paid off the car in February of 2008. Ive spent nearly $15000 in parts, labor and maintanence on my ride. I love my car and dont care what people think. Theres no rice about it. Its fun to drive, realiable and pretty peppy.
