Superb handling.

Why are they still using the key to open the bonnet? Annoying!

Great Family Car. — Great handling car,loads of grip even in the wet.Very reliable,cheap running costs although the Mpg isn`t as good as i hoped.I bit slow in low gears but fine on the motorways.I`d buy another more powerfull version.

One Of The Best Cars I Have Had — Great car all round, not realy a family car especially for long journeys as the back seat doesn't provide much movements for small adults and upwards. Never had a problem with it. its a very reliable car. I did at one stage have a consern about the breaks. In the mornings the breaks would grind as if metal on metal however I heard this is normal and the grinding cleared after a few kilometers.

Ford Focus — Stock performance is good, but thanks to the aftermarket you cant believe the potential these cars have. The focus is everything you need in this day and age. The car gets great gas mileage, it is fun to drive, you can fit all your friends in it. I am currently in the process of personalizing my focus. I love my Focus!

Good Car — performance good, braking good, good quality, fun to drive, nice handling, the SES version is the best the version, the reason: radio on steering and traction control, for the winter driving. The ABS works very welll too. i'll recommand it

Buy One.......or Two — theres nothing bad about this car.it gets great fuel mileage (30-45) when driven conservatively.at 70 it gets 35-37.its a great car to commute with i usually get 400-450 from 3/4 of a tank of gas (i never run past a 1/4 tank).it has excellent power adn lots of reserve for when you need to pass on those long 2 lane highways (138).

Good Backup Car — I got this car as a backup for when my regular vehicles are broken down, the car had been wrecked priore to my owning it so I knew would have some isues befor I bought it. Overall the car has been good to me. The main complaint I have is that the door handles are complete junk and are always braking.

This Is An Excellent Car For Animal Owners! I Would Recommend This Car To Everyone. — I just bought my ford focus a few days ago... I love it. Great handling, smooth breaking, spacious interior.. Its perfect for my dog since the seats fold down. I was originally going to get a small suv because I like being able to put things in my car, but with this car I wont ever have that problem at all! Great for the city, easy to parallel park. Only complaint is some of the inside compartments are a little rattley. And there is a MAJOR blindspot on the drivers lefthand side. I like the simplicity of all the buttons.. Ive still got a 6cd changer, cruise control, and there are volume controls/radio seek on the side of the wheel, but they are all easy to operate. Its nice to have the bells and whistles of a 2010 car, but I dont want to feel like Im flying a spaceship! My car came with leather, which is high quality and a beautiful color. If you dont mind paying a little more, this would solve the upholstery issue everyone seems to have. A link to a picture of my car: http://i148.photobucket.com/albums/s23/mfergie889/car.jpg
