Automatic since my wife can't drive stick!

My Daily Driver — I wish I had a few more dollars so I could have gotten the SES, but other than that, I like the little thing...30MPG for the year so far, no complaints. Get's over 35 on long trips. I think I'll keep this one for a while!

Pros

Looks good, Great gas milage,  

Cons

Needs suspension update,  and a sportier look for the coupe.

115

Owner — Good acceleration, awsome gas milage (24-43mpg) numb suspension. Had a nock from the 1/2 shaft, was recalled (15,500mi), The flat bumpers collect dirt easly, and the roof line could be dropped about 3" to give a sportier look and less like a bubble. Fun little car grate for delivering pizza's or going to work.

Life With My '09 Focus 2.0 Duratec — Good looking car with a sporty line and nice handling, sometimes i feel it has a little bit lazy acceleration because its weight (1327 Kg), but stills a well built and reliable car. Very comfortable seats and has space for family and cargo...

Pros

Solid but not awe inspiring.

Cons

Understeer.

2009 Ford Focus Hatch — Not a bad car. A bit plain jane but it is 2 litre, not the 1.6 so it goes ok. Understeers too much which can be dangerous in the wet. Has been reliable so far. The tipronic is good but only a 4 speed.

2009 Ford Focus Se — I have been driving my focus for 2 years now. It's a good reliable car to get around town in. It handled nicely and and felt link i was fully in control. The steering was a bit to firm for me though.

Pros

Pickup, handling, awesome dashboard

Cons

Why isn't how great this car is better advertised?

65

I Have Driven A Ford Lately. — What a surprisingly nice vehicle. Plenty of pickup for a small, naturally aspirated car, and the Microsoft SYNC digital dashboard system is awesome. Gas mileage is also excellent according to the mileage indicator. Solid quality construction and thoughtful design touches rounded it out for me and made me want to trade in my existing car for one.
