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.

Pros

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!

no ABS on this model. But very easy to drive.

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!

Performance, drive and handling, great interior and inexterior styling and craftmanship

Cons

Can't think of one

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!
