Loved It Until My Grandchildren Out Grew The Back Seat — Loved the ride, the options and the gas mileage! The heated seats were very nice in the winter and the back up camera was a nice feature, even for parking, The car would be perfet for a small family vehicle.

Pros

Cheap to run, zippy and fun to drive in manual transmission, great design and looks, practical, sporty, Bluetooth, USB connection, steering wheel controls, voice control, easy to maintain.

Cons

Not a fast car but manual transmission helps, back seats could be tight if driver and front passenger are over 6ft tall.

Cheap To Run And Maintain + Fun And Zippy To Drive = A Great Little Car — Appearance - exciting European aesthetics makes the car look fast and sporty. Build quality - everything is well put together. No rattles. No repairs whatsoever since new, super cheap to maintain, and to run. Performance - although not a fast car, but the manual transmission really helps to speed things up, and keep things exciting for the driver. The clutch feels light and easy to use. Braking is sensitive when needed, and not overly so. The handling of the car is well balanced - European style suspension inspires sporty handling, but soaks up bumps easily when going over pot holes, and cracks.

Pros

carbon free driving!  This car is also perfectly silent while running and has world class fuel economy for local driving

Cons

Very small trunk due to battery bank taking half of it.  I would love to have more range (only has 75 miles/charge) but I was fully aware of range limitations when I leased it.

Exciting, Futuristic And Well Engineered Earth Friendly Vehicle — Love this car, I have had it for 6 months, will write more later. Carbon free driving, charged by solar energy on my own home, silent, looks like a regular car, just like the normal Focus. Great blue tooth synch capabilities. I can stream pandora off my phone through the car speakers and control it from the touch screen.

Pros

This car handles like a 35k sports car. It's a very solid driving car that sips gas. It looks great, and you can't go wrong with the leather / heated seat interior. This is a great car that is an awesome value.

Cons

I wish the truck were bigger for when I go golfing with my buddys. The seats can go down to accomidate more than a standard trunk but that's tough when you also have other people in the car.

Excellent Handling, Gas Saving, Butt Warming, Value Car :) — This car has everything I wanted when I shopped for something affordable, with quality and expectations of reliability. You know that you're going to get big milage out of a quality vehicle like this and for 25k it's tough to beat. You could get a kia, or nissan, but something made in America that handles like it's from Japan, sips fuel like it's from Germany, and has the lure of Americana. I just really like it. Feel safe driving it. Very responsive to drivers input. Good acceleration with better breaking. Low maintence costs.

Great style, always an interesting drive, rear-view cam very helpful

Cons

Ford Touch screen draws attention from driving, not always reliable.

Fun, A Bit Funny — Certainly and exciting car with character busting from the seams. It's not luxury, but it's by no means economy either. The sport mode is nifty for getting that extra kick while entering the interstate or passing. Typical drive mode keeps the MPG right around 29 with typical mixed driving around town. Rear-view camera is a necessity in this vehicle-- the back window is tiny!

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

Pros

Fantastic handling for FWD car!!.  Great power, peak torque @ 2500rpm. Fantastic gearbox, Fantastic Brakes, real drivers car.

Cons

In town Gas MPG is average at best. Seats are tight and may not be comfortable for most over sized persons..  Turning radius is quite large for such small car.

Excellent Drivers Car — Best car I have ever owned. One of the most fun cars I have ever driven. Great compromise on price, performance and economy. very reliable, would definitely purchase the new RS focus on the heels of owning the ST, if the new RS focus wasn't 40k+!!

Leading In The Sport Compact Class! — One of the best vehicles in the sport compact class. Miles ahead of other cars in the class like the MAZDASPEED3, Volkswagen GTI, Honda Civic SI, Dodge Dart, and any other car in the FWD category. Fantastic ride, and a perfect choice for driving enthusiasts and manual fans alike.

Pros

Driving this you would never know there is a 2.0L - 4 Cylinder engine. The car goes, and goes quick. The handling is superb and drives like a race car. It hugs the road really well, and I have never been so impressed by a Ford product.

Cons

None yet.

Ford Focus - If You Like Quick, This Is It. — I don't dislike anything about this vehicle. I will keep you updated. I have some issues with the CVT transmission, but only because this is my first vehicle with this type of drivetrain. I find it feels as thought it is slipping and over-revving, but I can't pin point it yet. The car sounds good too. I never thought an Inline-4 could be so beautiful.
