The Family Car That Doesnt Make You Feel The Urge To Start A Family? — Amazingly the Ford Focus is not a bad car at all. Considering all the requirements and the huge variety of alternatives out there I couldn't find anything else that does the job as well as this. Of course its a minor bonus that the zetec engine is a good performer and the handling is top notch as is the long list of standard equipment that happened to come with the car. And my wife likes it!

5 Door 2.0l Manual - This Time Was The Much Nicer European Version — Exterior and interior styling was fantastic. A very funky car. The 2.0L engine was very good and car was quite quick. Ride and handling was fantastic (of course, it's a Focus). The car took some seriuos beating and stayed in one piece... a great motor!

Pros

Inexpensive parts, ease of repair, good gas mileage, reliable.

Cons

No OEM parts have failed on me from normal driving. I have no complaints because when the car is used within its intentions, it's an excellent vehicle.

Relatively Boring To Drive Stock, Responds Well To Modifications. Reliable. — This car is relatively slow stock, but has plenty of room and is a comfortable vehicle. It handles very neutrally and makes for an easy car to own as a first vehicle. It responds extremely well to modifications, and when done right can be an absolute show-stopper.

I Will Never Reccomend A Current North American Vehical — 4 Cylider automatic. Disc brakes on front and drums on rear. Descent trunk space but spare tire hard to get out. All in all I don't know what to say but I guess it is an okay car fo what it is.
