small space, front wheel drive

Swift — This is my second car, manual transmission, fun to drive. You can burn some tires if you want to. It's quite quiet on the highway. The stereo has good sound quality. The steering wheel feels great, kinda heavy to turn, I like it. The suspension is reflective, driver can feel much information from the road.

Great Little Car — Its very fun to drive by yourself, lots of torque, its got pretty good pull for a 4 banger, its a light car, great on gas. Handling is pretty good, you point the car in a direction and it goes there. I love the power sunroof, feels like a convertible that way. After 1 year not one rattle, not one problem. Stylish interior, great stock sound system.

Dawnie's Focus St3 — What isn't there to NOT like about it....oh except you could easily loose your licence. The sound of the Turbo when it kicks in is aweseome. Its a dream car to drive unlike the Honda Civic Type R and the Vauxhall Astra. (See Jeremy Clarkson and Vicky Butler Hedersons reviews for confirmation)

Performance, handing and family capabilities.

Weight and consumption.

Focus St — Ford's attempt at a hot hatch to suit the petrol head and family man! Ford successfully manage to blend both of these to form the Ford Focus ST, basically, the possibility to take the kids to school and drive home with your pants on fire. With a 0-62 time of 6.5 and a top speed of 149 its pretty hard not to. To date the only other two cars produced by Ford UK with a top speed higher than 150 are the GT40 and GT. Build quality has improved drastic from Fast Fords of past, materials have a feel of German quality. The Focus ST's appearance is head turning, you won't mistake it for the inferior models. Cost of ownership is relatively cheap, since the big blue oval set out to produce a family car, although consumption is a bit high. The car edge's the driver to push harder and drive faster. Fun factor is 10/10, brilliant handling due to it's highly sophisticated fully independent multi-link rear suspension (dubbed "Control Blade"). This setup allowing comfort and taut. Although the being so heavy the Focus does have a reputation for being wayward in a corner, but releasing the accelerator briefly will send the car into a controlled lift off oversteer.

Feature Loaded/good Power/comfort — Bought my first Focus 4dr sedan in 02. Didnt pretest. Figured if 1-40 cars on the road at that time was a Focus, it must be good. The Best small car I have ever owned. I traded a Chrysler T&C LXI and have not been sorry. Recently drove RTE 299 in N. Cal from Arcata to Redding. Very mountainous and curvy roads. Drove it hard and averaged 31.5mpg. Lots of features make it a very nice car...very good quality American built car! My 02, other than tires and oil/transmission fluid changes and acouple of brake jobs and timing belt replacement has been trouble free in 110,000 miles...plan on keeping it for several years yet. Thinking of a new economical, trouble free car...this is it!!!

Owner for 4 years, 9 months

Miles Driven per Year:25,000

High Performance For Every Day. — I don't like front wheel drive cars. That's what I was convinced of until I drove this Focus ST. I was stunned. The test drive went over an asphalt rally stage road in the Ardens. I had never driven the car before and didn't know the road. Nonetheless the Focus gave me instantly the feeling that I could rely on it and it would help me to driver better and faster. Incredible performance, not the horsepower, but the surging Nm's that are available at low revs make it so good. The handling is sublime. No spinning wheels although it was very wet, but grip grip grip. The fun factor is so high I would not doubt for a second to buy one of these in the 5d version as a family car. The Ford reseller surely knew what he was doing when he surprised me by proposing immediately to have a test drive...

Pros

Great milage, solid car. Trunk much larger than I expected, and 2 adults can comfortably ride in the back seats.

Cons

A bit noisy, could definitely have used some better shielding from engine compartment.

A Great, Inexpensive, American Sedan, With Some Thoughtful Features — Hasn't given me a moments trouble, other than regular maintenance. All the features like cruise control, power windows/moonroof etc. all work flawlessly. As I mentioned, the passenger space has a bit of road noise and hum from the engine, but not a deal breaker by any means. You want a comparable car with better shielding, be prepared to add 5k to your price. You can't go wrong with the 07-08 Focus sedans and hatchbacks, but stay away from the wagons. They are not built from the same chassis, and only share a few body parts with the rest of the line. As a result the wagons looked promising, very comparable in size to the volvos and volkswagons, but they are tinker-toy junk with horrendous repair records. Milage averaged around 27, and it handled well for a front engine/drive car with so little weight in the rear. Did OK in snow with good snow tires, but under-steered badly when the all-seasons were left on. Never felt any issue on roads that were only wet. Repair costs the few times it was required were rock bottom, with parts always easily available. Over all a nice, tight, little sedan, with decent looks, solid reliability record, and very fair price.
