The repairs

I Love This Car In So Many Ways But We Bought It Used And Have Put Quite A Bit Of Money In It — We had to replace the thermostat, have had it tuned numerous times and I have a vibration that 4 balances and rotations haven't fixed. I think the tires may be cupped.

Pros

Good gas milege; beats a mercedes off the block

Cons

not a good car for bumpy city roads

25

First Of Its Kind — Great car for commuting, especially the new models. Roomy and good for small family or couple. Engine reliability is good but car liable to get beat up on city streets with frequent realinements. Better performance with manual 5 speed; but 6 would be better.

Pros

Fun to drive, peppy, not a lot of blind spots

Cons

Suspension can be a little loud, hear more road noise because of closeness to ground.

Perfect For The Money — I've had my car for 4 years now, and it has 110,000 miles on it. Granted there have been times when I wished I could have pushed it off a cliff (mostly due to my own fault) it is a great little car. More than I expected for a compact car. It is comfortable, decent gas mileage, and just the perfect interior and exterior for me

Top Motor — The Ford Focus has been around for over ten years now and is still going strong. If you own one you will know the reason why it is one of the worlds best selling cars.

Small Cheap Car — Good for a first car. Relatively cheap to maintain. I loved this car until someone crashed into it on the side of the road one night. Wish I still had it! Cute, clean, speedy little thing.

Spacious, Good Looking, Reasonably Fast, Very Frugal, Comfortable, Well-Equipped, Safe

Cons

Everyone has one!

It Has Everything I Need — Cant possibly fault it, although it could do with being a bit faster. Handles like a go-kart, does 55mpg, has all the equipment I need and nothing I dont, never EVER gone wrong, I can drive 300 miles at a time and still feel comfortable. Shame everyone else I have ever met has either owned one or driven one, but then cars are popular for a reason!

Basic Commuter Car. — This car is ok to commute to work. I have taken it on long trips. Mileage is ok, but you do feel like you're stuffed in a tin can.
