Great Economical Car — I purchased this car for my mother, but soon discovered that it is an awesome car for my long commute. Now I drive it as often as I can. The gas mileage is awesome, and it lacks nothing in performance. The car has been trouble-free. The ride is surprisingly smooth for such a small car, and the engine is much more refined than my Escort. The Focus is everything I liked about my Escort...and then some. The heat and air conditioning in the Focus are also much better than the Escort although not quite as powerful as my Mercury Sable. Due to the ridiculous gas prices, I'm seriously considering a new Focus when it is time for another car. I just wish they still made the Focus as a station wagon.

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.
