I Will Never Reccomend A Current North American Vehical — 4 Cylider automatic. Disc brakes on front and drums on rear. Descent trunk space but spare tire hard to get out. All in all I don't know what to say but I guess it is an okay car fo what it is.

Fun To Drive!! — This car has afew extras being the street edition and is much tighter on the road due to the european tuned suspension and the bigger 16 inch wheels. I find all the controls easy to reach and for signalling and wipers you don't even have to take your hands off the wheel. A 6 cd in dash player is a plus as well. Good on gas and fairly peppy compared to some cars in its class... this car has been a trouble free and fun car to drive so far!

2001 Focus — sorta like it has plenty of power but has some nagging cooling and electrical problems.

So-s0 — Brought a 2001 SE as a second car. Runs great, however, the previous owner kinda trash the car. Almost all the window regulators had to be replace ( let kids play with the buttons and focus can't handle that) Had two different type of plugs in it (put correct and new ones in). Need to service the tranny, Can't find a Filter or pan gasket for it. (fluid is brown, needs to be done before I pay for a transmission) Elertic mirrors are loose from their mountings, it appears this is kinda of a deflect. And various "other" probelms. Car has 86,000 on it now, and I get 24 MPG with air on and 27 w/o air on. Of course it is a use car and thats what you get, other then that as far as a second car..great.

Little Car With Lots Of Room. — Only car I have ever owned that someone I never knew walked up and open the door to it and scared my poor mom and said I have to get one of these. It turns good and handles like it is on rails. Plenty of pep from the engine. And it fits a big guy like me who like not to have the steering wheel under his chin. Just wish they would bring the English version here for it looks hot.

Basic Commuter Car. — This car is ok to commute to work. I have taken it on long trips. Mileage is ok, but you do feel like you're stuffed in a tin can.
