I Am A Focus Fanatic! — Great gas mileage and zips around nicely for its size. Handles great on twisty roads. She is an absolute blast to drive! A great car for road trips and long distance driving. She is a black beauty with tinted windows.

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

It was small, so the gas mileage was good.

Cons

BRAKES.

Decent. — It was a solid first car. I don't know what the hell I was thinking when I bought it though, especially the color. The brakes were terrible, hence why I traded it in. It drove well, though. DO NOT BUY ONE.

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.

Pros

I love my Focus, it is great on gas (when I keep my foot out of it.) For haveing the body kit and being kinda low it does fairly well in the snow/ heavy rain. It is great for long trips.

Cons

I wish it wasn't goverened to 120mph

Love At First Gear Drop. — This car runs stong, I can beat the crap out of it and it just keep wanting more. I have it in the shop every couple weeks just to do the normal tune ups but other than that nothing majoy. It has 116,000 miles on it but it drives like it is brand new. I couldn't have asked for a more cost effective fun car to drive.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Great First Car — I bought my focus used but have no had any problems with it yet besides the usual wear and tear that comes from driving it every where and then some. I would not trade my car for the world it is perfect for me.

Pros

performance flexibility, noise when you gun it, quiet when you don't, ride and handling balance

Cons

If you are tightfisted and don't like using petrol!

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!
