Great Car!! — I bought this car used with 17,000 miles, and have since driven it up to about 53,000 miles. I have not had 1 problem with it yet, save the fact that the CD/MP3 player occasionally skips. This may be due to the previous driver, becuase I have not heard of the problem among other Focuses. The reliablility of this car is great, and if you change your oil on time and don't drive like a moron, you won't be fixing anything. The handling is excellent, the brakes and throttle are very responsive, and there is plenty of room to upgrade this car.

Focus St Review — Though a watered down version of the Focus SVT which is the Focus RS of Europe the Focus ST is very strong for being a small sedan. This car has taken a massive beating in terms of getting rear ended and all I have needed was a new bumper. It's performance is second to none as it pops right off the line and can stop to match. Its handling is very well with the Macpherson suspension and the control blade IRS. Its appearance is very Euro to its twin over the pond though its interior is one of its own kind the only difference between it and its Euro Twin. Its easy on fuel and the repairs have been few and far between. I enjoy driving this car very much its a great starter car.

Greatest Fwd Sedan On The Market — I love this car, great gas mileage, enough power, and great handling. The only thing that could use some help would be the acceleration and larger wheels. The interior is great quality, nothing loose and excelent sound system.

Pros

If you press the gas hard enough it flies.

Cons

It is a salvaged car so it has problems here and there.

My Car Is My Life — It's Black and runs great. It also is a four cylinder car so it doesn't waste so much gas.

Although Boring, This Car Is Great For The Average Driver. — It's not bad, but I'm not sure if it's good either. I haven't dealt with it long enough to determine the build quality of the car, and the car isn't beautiful, but it doesn't look that bad I guess. The 4 cylinder engine isn't very powerful, but it is efficient on fuel.

Sporty Sedan, 5 seater, 0-60 7.9s, 32mpg Highway,

Cons

Not that many choices for performance mods.

Sporty Sedan — It's a good car for a family sedan. The engine comes stock 136hp, 2.0L Durtec 20, dual overhead cam inline 4. Handles pretty well on wet or dry roads. According to Car and Driver Mag. 0 - 60 is a respectible 7.9s.

The Vehical Is Okay...it Does Not Get The Preformance Ford Claims! — The Vehicle is Okay....could be alot better in many catagories... Gas Milage is the biggest loser...It gets far less miles per gallon of gasoline than Ford Claims...Is not as comfortable as Ford Claims. Car Is very Noisy...I have already had a serious front drive train problem that was fixed...Cars too new to have such problems...I only have 26560 miles on the speedometer....Unhappy about whole preformance.

Good, Reliable Little Car, Unfortunately, I'm Just Borrowing It For Now. — It can get up and go, it's way faster than my Escort which is it's spiritual ancestor. I hate that Daddy bought it stripped.

Better Try From Ford — Another company car....nothing special, the build quality is Ok but not more than that. Still this device is only for moving from A to B purposes.
