I Love It, An All Around Great Car--sporty, Cool Looking, Agile, Afordable And Fast. — I have the 2007 ST, it is not the Euro spec ST (as in Volvo 2.5 turbo), but it's powered by Mazda developed (2.3). Its power and specially low rpm torque is more than adequate, better still can be easily improved. The car handles great and is very comfortable to drive at high speeds. It's very stable and responsive (the euro spec ST & SVT heritage helps here). Brakes are also very good with 4 wheel disk and ABS. The winter package adds traction control & heated seats (toasty). The optional Sony speaker stereo w/ the sub sounds great. Overall I found the car very well optioned for the price. It's a normal every day car, but they don't have to be boring. This one is surely not--I look forward to drive it as much as possible!

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...

Performance, handing and family capabilities.

Cons

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.

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.

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!!!

Focus St-2 — Love the car apart from the fuel economy, not a strong point especially around town. Otherwise performance is all I can want (at the moment!) being effortless and rapid. As it is silver not the ASBO orange, it is also somewhat of a Q car in that rapid progress can be made without attracting too much attention either from others or the Law!

Xr5 Focus — i love how quick off the line it is. It accelerates powerfully although the braking is a little weak for the power of the motor. The drivers door has a rattle that the dealer reckons they can't hear but it drives me nuts. The door sounds like it flexes when I go around a hard corner. the interior and exterior styling is just gorgeous. The electric orange colour is vivid and stands out for miles. Mileage averages 10.4 - 10.5 l per 100km around the city and it is loads of fun to drive
