07 Focus S — The car is great, handles awesome. With the base 2.0l you only get 130hp its kinda lacking. the gas and maintenance to the car is very little. It has a 14 gallon tank and gets about 26 to 28 miles per gallon in the city and 32 to 35 on the highway.

ATC

Funnest Car To Drive, But! — I love to drive my 2007 ST. It corners very well and the accelleration is good enough to keep up with or pass most cars. you really have to watch your speed in this thing because it goes. The only real down fall of this car is the "Automatic Traction Control". Even when its off it kicks in. I have two instances were the ATC is bad. One when driving up an inclined driveway in the snow, the brakes will actually kill the engine just about the time your getting some momentum. The second is in an emergency were you would had to dump the clutch to get out of the way, this has happened to me twice now. If this happens you pretty much have to burn the clutch up to keep moving. Overall I think it is one of the best cars on the road.

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.

since purchased new, mostly regular maintenance, nothing major

Cons

The window crank handles to roll windows down are in the opposite direction, than any other vehicle I have seen.

Very Reliable — 170,000 kms and still original rear brakes, maintenance wise, regular oil/filter, check brakes twice a year, check over once a year, very reliable vehicle. Vehicle fun to drive. Have had no check engine lite come on. Would like to trade in on recent model year. But not sure with all the technology on vehicles today.

Excellent Value — I bought a 2007 Focus ST (duratec 23 engine) new simply to save money on car payments for a while. Surprisingly, I have had this car for almost 5 yrs now and it's paid off. Talk about saving money and I've enjoyed the car too. Despite it's quirks, such as uncomfortable front seats and cheap materials, the car shines in many ways. In fact, I like to think I have cheated the system with this car, because it costs so little to own and is so much fun to drive. The 5-sp has an excellent feel to it, one of the best I have ever driven, feeling better than many sports cars. You plenty of torque to start in 2nd without stalling from the more powerful 2.3 engine. The car is very nimble (very light weight thanks to cheap materials :) and handles excellent with the ST performance package. There are many aftermarket parts available to improve it even further. I am very pleased with this car and if you can find a used 2007 Focus duratec 23 with low miles, I highly recommend it.

Pros

Fun car to drive. Great mileage. Comfortable.

Cons

Lacking in performance, coming from a Mustang.

Fun Little Car. — Coming from a Mustang, it's hard to review performance on a car when you had such a great performer. But the Focus performs pretty well and is very fun to drive. The quality of the Focus is very good. I drove this car from Orlando to St. Pete and back with no problems. I work my vehicles very hard and this little car does well. I love the look of the Focus as well, that's the reason why I went for it. The cost of the Focus is reasonable. I don't worry much about gas mileage or prices with this car. I fill up the tank about every week and a half and that's from driving alot.
