Pros

Quick reliable car with great gas mileage

Cons

the vibrations rattle the air vents and side view mirrors.

25

Its Good — Has pretty acceleration in first gear. my brakes always squeak but it breaks very effectively. handling is soso, body roll is way too much. hasnt needed repairs since ive owned it and i drive it pretty roughly. The radio stopped working though, itll turn on and off whenever it feels like it which is not often. interior is crappy, everything rattles (especially the air vents and side view mirrors) appearance is nice.the engine sounds really nice. its definitely not a car to be ashamed driving. car isnt wide making parking in tight spots easy. mine is black with black rims so im actually proud of how it looks. gas mileage is great if u drive within the speed limits. maintenance is minimal. its a fun car to drive because of the fact that it smokes stock honda civics and the quick acceleration

Good Economy Vehicle — Its no aston martin, but it sounds nice, looks decent, gets me from A-B, and has a nice stereo system. It gets great gas mileage, saving money there. They are cheap to purchase and easy to modify inside and out.

Pros

5 speed manual

Cons

it needs to be a little over 200 hp

35

Its Been Taken Care Of Very Well — The acceleration is accually not bad, it has the 5 speed transmission which i really like. i purchased a full K&N cold air intake for it and it gave my car 11 hp which that does seem much but it helped out. the interior is just all stock for now nothing done with it. the gas mileage is about 30 mpg. this car is really fun to drive.

I Love My Focus — I love my Focus, she took a bad hit and kept me safe! Bonus is unless you are me you would never know her entire ass end was trashed. She is a fun little car to drive even though she is missing a few cyclinders.
