Don't Get It — This car has no acceleration. But what to expect from a bone stock 4 cylinder that was bought for fuel economy? If Ford only came with a v8 in them, it would be a really fun car to drive. Oh well, got to change to a car with some go.

Ok Car But Not Super — OK car, but not super. Quality wise is acceptable, but would need a lot of improvement. Price vs features is good. Is OK a second car or a for family (wife)... If I have the choice, I would not buy the same car again. I had more fun with the previous model - 2000 - 2003..

Great Car To Have Fun With — I love this car because it is basically my toy. It has a lot of power specially after making several upgrades to it. Sometimes I take it out to the track and drive it at high speeds, so far its handling is great, everything about it is great. Not a very good family car, but can be used as one every once in a while when necessary.

Its My Kids First, Then My Car, Then My Husky, Then My Ps3 And Of Course After That My Girlfriend — Performance is outstanding, excellent braking and handling. Appearance is very sporty Cost of ownership, i'm not going to lie, it isn't the cheapest of vehicles to own especially out of maintenance plan Fun factor. Its absolutely the car i've had my most fun in!!

American Pie - I Love It — This was an economically driven step down from 09 full size GMC Sierra, so I had low expectations. What a surprise. Since 1964 I've primarily driven pickups and station wagons (non-SUVs) for personal transportation. I compared this Focus to several other small wagons and this beats out Passat, Jetta, Matrix, Subaru, Volvo and most small suvs for overall price vs utility. This moved to the top of my list of legacy small wagons. Passat is my favorite but loses on price and cost of ownership. This Focus has been trouble free for two years (Purchased w/76k, now 87k). I do treat my vehicles to the best tires, brakes, battery, lube and coolant without being asked.

Pros

Very nice looks. Great power; Excelent handeling

Cons

Fuel Consumption (but what do you expect if you gun it); poor turning circle thus difficult parking

Very Nice Pocket Rocket; Very Custumizable — Stylish car, you really get noticed in this sort of car. It's not all that economicle when looking at fuel consumption; passanger space; grociery space; parking. But that said, it is the ultimate low budget toy for weekends and a cool driver for week days. Ultimately we buy cars to enjoy the thrill of driving and the Focus ST really delivers.

Pros

Handles well, fun to drive, great gas mileage

Cons

Just not enough power stock but a lot of things to change that

Focused On Handling — The handling is by far the selling point of this car... something I cherish more than power. The exterior is nice and the interior is okay too, as long as you have time to customize it- although it's comfortable. Gas mileage is also a selling point. Overall it's real fun to drive and if kept well maintained, a great little car.
