Ford Focus Review — its a great car! handles nice. Quick accel. Plenty of room. Performs amazingly. Enough power for everything. Not too expensive. Easy to maintain. All in all, I think that this is a very nice car and I recommend that people get it.

Friendly Review. — It had been customized.. (Audio system, Performance and interior appearance.) it gives me about 35 milles per gallon on high ways and 30 in the city. mechanical problems? none. and it is nice to drive,, soft and flexible to do 360* on a narrow 2 ways road. lol.

Pros

To go to work

Cons

The a/c compressor shuts off during acceleration to save on the engine, bad for AZ.

She's A Good Little Car And I Plan On Having Her For A While — I got this cause my other new vehicles had all been trucks and i didn't really have any truck space. Now I have a nice size trunk and it still seats four even though its only a two door, but being a hatchback it also saves me from the sport classification on insurance.

Join Focusfanatics.com! — It has lots of options for the windshield wiper speed which I Love! Then, there's a convenient CD holder on the left underside of the dash. It's fun to drive and able to weave in and out of traffic =] And, the seats are comfy.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

roomy, fun to drive

Cons

should be better gas mileage-(understand new ones are better)  poor paint job

25

Yes I Would Recommend This Car — performance-good over all Quality built very poor paint- chippping on front but never seen dirt roads. For a small car very roomy- can carry a lot with back seats folding down. Gas mileage could be better for a small car. I love driving it- can turn on a dime so never get lost.

Pros

Speedy, Sound system

Cons

Color, interior

75

Sporty — It's got a pretty good handling system on it. Pretty happy with the sound system for stock. I really enjoy driving it for the sake of it keeping up with my shifting, braking, and turns. I like the exterior looks, but would rather have a nicer color such as black or white. I however do not like the interior that Ford decided to go with, they could have gone sportier. I like the mileage it gets and the maintnance is simple! All in all a great car.

Pros

great gas mileage.  great seats, stiff suspension, fairly decent handling

Cons

very little power, at 45k it got rattley and weak feeling, no Tach, boring interior--which is why i painted it :)

25

My Personal Viewpoint. — The handling is decent, acceleration is decent with just me in the car--typical small four cylinder. The build quality is so-so The appearance is good, especially if it is detailed, and you rid yourself of the stock wheels. Cost of gas and insurance is reasonable. When i first got the car it was fun, I'm pretty much bored of it now.

Pros

Quick, fuel efficient, decent looking

Cons

Difficult to work on

35

Cheap & Fun — 5 speed manual is pretty quick for a stock car that gets 35 mpg. Car is light and handles well, not much as far as repairs, will go forever. Fun to drive but a pain in the ass to work on! Sounds good with an intake and/or exhaust on it.
