Pros

36 MPG after all those miles

Cons

Ford retrofit many replacement parts which increased repair costs. Thanks Ford!!!!

World Record Focus — 332,000 miles and still going! Regular maintenance kept the car alive. Many replaced parts however. If it wasn't for a broken air conditioner I would keep the car. I'll be looking for my next car in the spring of this year.

My Bumblebee! — I love this car! It runs great, looks great and is really fun to drive. it also really turns heads! this car is in great shape and is very low maintenance. the only thing i would change would make it a manual and i wish it had a little faster acceleration.

Poor music

About Ford Focus 1.8 Gia — Its a really nice car. Has great acceleration and breaking, but for full pleasure it is best to have some little more expensive tires. I don`t have some special music in it, but i supose that it would seem much better with some nice musical system. But, I have GIA additional equipment, so it is really nice to drive this car.

2001 Ford Focus Zx3 — Car handles pretty amazing for the price, performance stock was lacking but after a few modifications the car has opened up alot. Overall the car isn't too bad. Build quality touch and finish wise could be better but that is to be expected with a Ford. I would buy one again.
