Standard Car — This is the benchmark by which all other cars are judged. This is standard car #123456. It will get you to point A and back to point B with minimal fuss, though it won't look pretty doing it. The build quality is fine, though the bottom of it's trunk keeps slipping around, expsing the spare tire, which is just kinda annoying.

Great Little 2 Door — I can tow a trailer with this car, that hauls motorcycles, or jets skis, so works just fine for me. If I had a family I would need a small suv, and suffer the gas mileage. runs great, I have put on 30k miles in a year.

Great — Very nice economical car. Great gas mileage,looks,basic clean interior and Satellite radio is a definite plus. The SE model with power windows and locks and alloy rims looks sporty and sharp. Good size trunk for all my stuff

Best Used Car I've Ever Purchased — This is a great car for a single granny like me - it holds my grandsons in their car seats comfortably and I have no concerns about safety. It accelerates when I need it to, there are no rattles, and no blind spots.

Ford Focus 2010 — Love everything about, I never thought of Ford as a sporty car until I got mine. I get lots of compliments. Has plenty of get up and go for a 4 cyl. Handles great on the road. Hugs the corners.

Good Little Car — This is a fun car, great handling and my fuel mileage is way above EPA estimates. I get 29 in city driving and 39 on the hiway sometimes more if I am careful. Car reviewers and EPA testers must have lead foots.

Excellent Commuter, Or Fun Drive Anywhere Car On A Budget — Love this car. With a mix of street and freeway driving I am averaging over 31 mpg (manual transmission) and that's with a semi-heavy foot. This is an outstanding commuter car. I love the sync. The bluetooth phone feature is very easy to use along with the voice usb feature for my ipod. I really like the appearance of the car. I have the SES model with the 17 inch wheels and spoiler. The handling is phenomenal for a car that gets easily 30+ mpg. The sport suspension on the SES is highly worth the upgrade. The ride is surprisingly smooth considering the 17" wheels with 45 series low profile tires. Performance is very reasonable again considering the mileage it gets. I have no problems accelerating on large hills on the freeway and can easily maintain 80+ mph on those hills. Passing can slightly be a chore but is not a problem with a little room. I purchased this vehicle as a commuter but I truly enjoy driving it.

An Enjoyable Car To Drive Overall — Recently bought this car. I was impressed with the features that were standard adn the options that were on this particular car. Handling is good, haven't tried to see the limits yet. Mileage is better than expected, been getting about 36 highway, 24 around town, with the auto no less. I am actually excited to drive this car, which is something I haven't felt since my hot rod went away, lol. A few more ponies would have made it even better. It does have a bit of road noise depending on road surface conditions. Wind noise is minimal.

Pros

sporty styling, handles like a dream around corners, Great price for the amount of Car!  

Cons

If you will be using this car as a "people mover", look into a bigger model with more space for backseat passengers.  This car wasn't designed with the "adult" backseat passenger in mind.  The leg room is next to nothing when the front seats are fully slid back.

So Far, I Am Completely Satisfied With The Purchase I Made. — I've only owned this car for about 6 weeks and so far it's exceeded my expectations on just about every level. I had previously drove a fully loaded '07 Fusion SEL and the end of my lease was approaching so I went to the dealership, test drove a few new Fusions and they really didn't excite me like I thought they would. I looked around the lot and out of a handful of different trim level Focus's they had, THIS one said, "Hey, over here!" I test drove it and immediately was impressed with the "launch" this car had, considering I was used to a 3.0 liter V6, I figured this 2.0 liter "four-banger" would be a dog in comparison. I couldn't have been more wrong! WOW, pedal down and it want's to GO! And the acceleration didn't diminish as I was quickly approaching 50mph. I smashed the gas and it went from 50 to 90, in a snap! There are several key things that I would like to point out, but there is ONE major one that was a big selling point for me and it wasn't the dealership, nor the friendliness of the sales/financing staff. This car actually "sold itself" as soon as I sat behind the wheel. For me, a guy that stands over 6' and weighs in around 220, I feared this car would be small and uncomfortable but it wasn't at all! There's plenty of leg room and head room to go around. I can't say the same for the backseat though. Thanks FMC for yet again going above and beyond to satisfy your loyal customers, year after year. Keep up the good work and I will forever be a "Ford Tough" customer!

Fords Are Fit — Great car to fit your budget. I would prefer to spend my money on something else, but the car ran well. I like the sunroof and the gas mileage. Fords are cheap to repair, bu t break more often. Decent buy
