Pros

its better than walkin

Cons

Its a pain in the ass, has no power and its boring.

25

Its A Way To Get Around, But Not Much Fun. — I dont really like it...Ive had alot of problems with it from widows that dont work to this random jerky thing it will do occasionally when Im cruising .. The catalytic converter is shout so my engine light is on all the time...The air doesnt work and it doesnt have much power now the CD player randomly goes off and I have to hit it like the Fonz to get it back on...it is a means to an end, it doesnt look too bad so thats a plus...the only thing about it that is in the same ballpark as my dream car is that its made by Ford...I'm a die hard Mustang gal...

Pros

Gas saver

Cons

Slow

45

Good Gas Saver Not Very Fast — I did kinda alot to the motor and was not happy with the performance it gave me at all. it was decent for a 4cyl but wanted more. braking was great. handling was great. build quality was cheap. has plastic screws all over the car. loved the way the car looked and gave great gas mileage.

cheep

Cons

cheep

45

Cheep — gets me where i need to go. is good on gas. very clean. nice interior and the better wheels. bought it for $1500.00 us. for the most part its been a good investment in a used car. if you want a car that is cheep and easy to find used. if it has low enough miles and the price is right then get it.

01 Ford Focus 2.0l/ Gold/ Great Condition — Acceleration is bad. Braking is okay, but not ABS. Handling is very good. Minor repairs to the body. Rattles in the cabin a bit. Gas mileage is great. Maintenance has been kept up. Have fun with it! Its freaking amazing!

Pros

The handling is the best and the steering is tight.

Cons

Some stuff will be expected to break over time

45

I Loved It When I Got It, Then I Hated It For A While, But Now I Love It Again : ) — i had to put a lot of money into my car before it stoped giving be problems. But now that its all fixed, i love it and i cant wait to spend my money on cool things instead of just fixing my car.

Pros

accel. good for racing

Cons

bent hood, but can be easly fixed.

35

Very Good Car. Great Gas. And Is Better Than Most Cars On The Road No Doubt — everything is nice besides i just got in a accident. the hood is barely bent. Nobody even notices that i got in a accident. like no scratches at all. other than that i put in some new Broham spark plugs (cant quite remember the name exactly but its close). Also the accel is very good. Soon to have 17-inch Enkei performance EV5.
