endurance without any noticible problems

Cons

Perfect Companion To Share Long Distances With. — Good performance - long distances without problems. Takes only about 8l/100km. Cheap second hand car. No repairs yet, except for the two flat tires in the first month. :-) good variability (stowable bakc seats) nice sound good acceleration (115hp) comfortable seats bad gear shifting (especially rear gear) All in all a affordable car that satisfies its driver a lot.

My Ford Focus — I like the sporty nature of my car, ease of parking, and overall driveability. I get mediocre gas mileage compared to other sub-compacts. This is a cheap car to maintain. The color gets so many compliments: Its like a copper/gold/bronze. I wish I had money to customize! i love my car

Saves me so much money on gas!

Cons

There's a little bit of a rattle when I slow down.

35

Nicest Car I've Owned So Far. That Rhymes! — This is a great little car! It accelerates smoothly, and relatively quickly for a 4 cylinder. It handles very well, and corners like a pro. It gets great gas mileage too, about 30 miles per gallon in town and 35 on the highway. All in all, it's a fun car to drive! Oh yeah, the stereo it came with kicks major a*s!

Windows

Slow engine

Ok.. — I like all the windows. I don't like that it is a 4 door. The trunk is large and the engine is slow. 20.3 seconds for 0-60. The cost wasn't too bad and it is fun to drive. Overall, it is a good college student car. It gets you from Point A to Point B

Hard to handle over bumps

75

Great Little Car — I love this car!!! This car is great. Performance- It was some power to it, more then you would think out of small car. The handling can get a little tricky on bumps. Performance I give this car four stars. Build Quality- Lets honstly say that Ford likes to make cheap looking cars, or aleast the inside. But my car is a 2001 and nothing is broken yet. But the motor and what makes a car run are all great. Appearance-Now I love the appearance to this car. It is great with all of the curves, I like the european feel of this car. Cost Of Ownership- Ok, now you know that every one is worried about gas prices, well I am not in this baby, I have been getting around 25 mpg in my car. Most is city driving. I bet if you could get 30 mpg. Fun Factor-This car is great to drive, and that is period!!! Overall, this car is the best car that I can call my own. And, it is a easy on your pocket too.
