Pros

great car over all

Cons

windshield wipper system isn't the gretest, and suspension is allittle noisy in bumps.

65

Waht A Deal! — Its a great little car, it's got plenty of low end and high end torque, it handles great, (suspension sounds a little rattly on bumpy roads, it's just the way it was built, The sway bar is abit slimer then it should have been, so when you hit a bump, it shakes around inside of the sway bar mounts.) But all and all, it's really reliable, it's great on gas, 800-900 Km/tank, it was very cheap; It used to be a "Extra Murral" (Nurses) car, so it wasn't driven hard or any thing, it only had 30,019 Km on the odometer, it's only 3 years old and I got it for: $9,995.00$ with a 5 Year/140,000 Km Full coverage warranty, with road side assistance, and free rental car if any thing happens. And at "Taylor Ford & Lincoln", they are now selling them for $5,500$ - $8,500$ With no money down, so It's a great car and a great deal!

Pros

It's quick and beautiful

Cons

It can creak a lot especially when it's cold

55

In Focus — I absolutely love my car! It's quick in town and can keep up with the big boys on the highway. It gets great gas mileage and has very little maintenance. It is so fun to zip in and around traffic in town. And I turn heads everywhere I go! I would recommend this car to anyone.

Pros

Great gas mileage

Cons

A little sluggish with four guys men in it

65

It's A Focus — Solid car. Rides nice. Great gas mileage. Jump in and go anywhere. Easy to add your own touches to it for fairly cheap. Only thing i would do is dynomat whole car for less road noise. Usually get 32mpg/370 on a tank, you can make it last less, but its more fun to say i get 370 miles on about 13 gallons.

Pros

it has a radio, heated seats and mirrors

Cons

every thing else

55

Feraille, Ordure, Rebus , Dechet = Ford — what can i say , it's the company car, gets me there , most of the time lol, very slow acceleration, if the air is running the car is even slower, car is 2 years old and it runs like it is 25 years old, everything rattles and shakes, luckly i do not pay for it because i would sell it cheap and buy something else asap, the only thing i love about this ugly box is the heated seats and mirrors, should be standard on all canadians cars!!!!!

Pros

Handles well, fun to drive, great gas mileage

Cons

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

45

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.

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

lots of room, can take a beating (live in new england, drove in a lot of snow), good gas mileage. nice sound system.

Cons

little engine, little power. front seats were terrible for your back. ugly car.

25

Reasonable Daily User Decent Space. — super reliable car, car was easy to handle in snow storms driving to work would take a while but the focus could climb those steep hills and survived the winter. the engine was strong and was more powerful than other focuses i drove or rode in. all in all, get rid of the front seats and you have a 4/5 car.

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.
