Cons

Fix Or Repair Daily

Buy A Honda — The performance of this car is satisfactory due to the fact that it is on a sport suspension and the 5 speed manual transmission helps improve engine respnse pretty well. the build quality is alright. so far it hasnt fallen apart or broke down altogether. the appearance is pretty shaky. its got its bumps and dents but its holding out. the cost of ownership is super low. gas lasts forever and parts arent terribly expensive. fun factor. this car couldnt race much of anything but its somewhat entertaining to drive being a manual and the sport suspension.

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.

Ford Focus...the Mighty Little Car — A great little car for the money. Good pickup and braking. Lots of leg and head room in the front. The backseat is a little small. Pretty decent steering. All around a fun car to drive. I love it the car/

Pros

It wasn't a people carrier.

Cons

It was boring.

35

Boring Car. — It was an OK car. It was either but this or buy a people carrier and I would rather walk than drive a people carrier. It was nothing special, it was ok at the time as I had a newborn baby.

A Fun Lil Car — its fun strong lil car. I have beat the hell out of it and it just keeps on going. I have a superchager on it and it still gets good gas mileage. this car is a must for everyone that wants a fun cheap car that can take abuse.
