Pros

Great inexpensive commuter, and with the rear seats down can hold a surprising amount of cargo

Cons

Cabin noise at highway speed is high

Great Commuter — Overall, a great inexpensive car to own and operate, just turned 163000 miles and it keeps on going. Not bad for 2 adults, but it struggles with 4 people inside. Great gas mileage, I average approximately 31mpg on the highway, and about 25 mpg in the city. Overall it has been a trouble-free car, and I would definately buy another one

Maintenance nightmare

This Car Was Nothing But Trouble — The Ford Focus I had was a white wagon. I had it in the shop constantly. Driving it was no fun because no matter who I took the car to, or how many times I took it, they could not remove the squeal from the brakes.

'02 Zx3 Hatchback — Good over all, my car has problems that need to be fixed so i cant complain until i fix the problems and then judge. the Car length is nice and small so you are able to fit into tighter spaces. The car seats are so great i really missed them when i had to rent a car while she was in the shop.

Little Kitty Moves Like A Cheetah :) — Got this car after my Explorer kicked the tranny bucket. Have only had it for about a month now and so far I love it. Nice basic car that moves well on the highways and prowls the city streets like a pro! Got our first good snow/ice storm and this little car did fantastic in it. My job is up on a pretty steep hill and we drove past 3 ars that weren't able to make it all the way up..the little Focus just cruised right up like the road was flat and dry!!!

Nice Used Ecnobox — It's a slower car, with only 130 hp, but its peppy enough to be fun, really solid handling, direct steering and good clutch with a smooth shifter, extremely reliable, not a single problem with it yet. It is also good on fuel, getting near as makes no difference 50 mpg (can gal.) on the highway

Good gas mileage

Cons

pretty much everything other than the gas..

Embarrasing Ugly Car! — This car really was a piece... No matter how well I kept up the brakes, maintenance, etc.. it ALWAYS ran poorly.. (and the brakes always squealed - i was told this was a trait of Fords) It had little to no pickup and there wasnt anything great about the handling either. Also... what an UGLY model!!! .. I would guess the only good thing about this car was the gas mileage.. It normally only cost me about $40 to fill and it lasted a long time... Save yourself alot of headaches and dont buy a Ford...

My Zx5 — My new 02 ZX5 Focus. Bought it because it was cheap to insure ($92 a month for full coverage) parts are plentiful, easy to find and cheap (brand new crate motor ready to drop in $1000) It's pretty gutless but it works perfect for delivering pizza (30 mpg city/highway mixed)
