Pros

good on gas, seats fold down in the back for more space, rides smooth, great commuting car, it has a sporty look but can also do the job for a family car. No problems only work done on it is tune ups when it needed it. Has brand new tires!

Cons

Not a great amount of space like a sedan. its a little noisey due to the aftermarket muffler which can be removed, turn radius is average not great.

Sporty/ Commuter Car/ Reliable/ Fuel Efficient — I dislike having a hatch back back because you have to be more aware when backing out because you have a wider end. I dont like the car being a 2dr coupe because getting in and out with friends in the back is annoying having to move the seat. Also has a dummy shift light that drives me crazy if your off even by the slightest mile per hour. Nonetheless pretty good car, great condition for its year, reliable, and

Pros

Everything you'd expect from a car!

Cons

Just a bit boring!

My First Car — A very reliable car that behaves well. I was lucky to have this as my first car. It served me very well for around 8 years before starting to show signs of engine malfunction. Appearance wise it's not the most exciting car to go for, but as a first car it was great! The new Ford Focus looks amazing!

Great On Gas, Horrible In Races — 2.0L SPI engine, 5 Speed Manual Transmission, Tons of aftermarket performance parts make this car a decent car for the beginner tuner that would like to steer clear of the civic craze.

Pros

it's a racing little s.o.b and is the most reliable car i've ever had.

Cons

the only thing i didn't like about the focus at the time was that i had to learn to drive standard but that's all good now that i can drive her.

Fuel Efficient — I liked the fact that its good on gas! It rides very smooth also. Low mileage for its year. It doesnt really work well for me because I have a bigger family size and its too small for all of us.

2001 Focus Lx — Basic commuter car is all a Focus is. No power, sub par handling, and just ok braking. Fuel millage is decent however, mine had engine problems, so it wasn't what it could have been. Still, there was somethin I liked about the car. It definitely wasn't a bad lookin car.

Loves My Focus — good litle car. Had to only do minor repairs like thermostat, battery, spark plugs/wires, timing belt and maintenance services like fuel filter, transmission flush and oil changes. When I need to "go" this vehicle has plenty enough power to get me where I need to go. I can go weeks without filling up on gas. In the snow...I tried to skid for fun but the cars front wheel drive takes control
