My 1st Car

When I was 16 I got my first car handed down to me it was a 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier, I have had my permit since then. My Cavalier has a lot of miles on it & I never drove it much because it was the only car we had & my dad needed it to drive to work. On December 13, 2012 I went to a car dealer & was looking for a small car that was reliable & that I was comfortable in. As I was searching the parking lot of cars & trucks my eyes caught sight of a 2005 Ford Focus ZX4 SE. After looking at the inside & outside I found that it was in great shape other than a broken console inside (which can be fixed). My dad was with me & we took the car for a test drive to see if it acted oddly or if it acted like something was wrong & after our test drive found that there was nothing wrong with car just a few things which can be easily fixed & taken care of. I have had this car since & have driven it quite a bit & so far there still are no peculiarities. I even gave it the nickname of zippy because every time I push the gas pedal it wants to just take off & go. I absolutely love my little 2005 Ford Focus ZX4 SE (Zippy).

Brian M. Great story. I am on my 3rd Focus. First was a 2003 SE, next a 2004 ZTS (Loved that 2.3 Duratec), and now I drive a 2013 ST. Love the car. Has some minor irritations, but I know this will last me for the long haul, well unless they build an AWD RS. Would hop into that in a hot minute.
