Awesome!!!!!!!!! — There isn't anything I didn't like about the car. The car is very fun to drive and very agile! You never feel "turbo lag" with this car. ford knocked it out of the ball park with the ST. The seat are comfortable and hug you tightly! The seats are one of the best features. You will fall in love with this car!

Great Looks And Fuel Economy But A Few Quirks. — I rented one of these and had it for about 2 weeks, it only had a few thousand miles. I expected the compact size to be an issue due to my size but it wasn't. I was very comfortable driving and as a front passenger as well. It was just my wife and I so we did not have anyone in the back. Which was good as I was able to move my seat back to a comfortable position. This did not leave much leg room for a rear passenger though if we would of had one I would of been forced to move my seat up and be a little crunched. The factory tires are bad in the snow, plan on needing a set of snow tires on the front. I got stuck in an inch of snow on a very slight incline and the transmission overheated within 2 minutes of trying to get out. The computer was polite enough to display a message asking me to apply the brake and displayed a countdown timer until it would be safe to go again. Also I could not get any traction when starting out from a stop in the snow when other drivers on either side of me had no issues. The trunk had a decent amount of space but the opening itself was not very wide. Larger laundry baskets were an issue in this sedan as you cannot get them into the decent size truck because of the opening itself being so small so you may want to opt for the hatchback if that is a concern. I had to put mine in the back seat. My wallet way pleased of course as driving half way across the state did not cost me much in fuel.

Small car ride

Love It — I like the fuel mileage and the fact that it’s a FORD. Its very fun to drive to and from work. The sound system links up to my Iphone and iy plays all my music from a USB port. No need to carry CD's in the car.

Pros

Long trips are relaxing, and the smoothness is excellent.

Cons

It can be difficult to see the hood, which can be a deterrent in figuring how to judge clearances.

Technologically Advanced With Style — Performance: Performance is quite excellent, although acceleration can be slightly tricky at times when at a full stop. Build Quality: The build quality is excellent, and at least the hood is big enough for any accident, if one were to occur. The only downside is having a disadvantage of not seeing the hood. Appearance: The appearance is decent. The front dashboard has excellent information that is clearly readable and easy to understand. The only downside is not having a lock on the glove compartment. Cost of Ownership: I never owned the vehicle since this is a rental. Fun Factor: It can be quite fun to drive. The information on the screen in front of you on the dashboard is quite excellent, and the CD player is fantastic. One can easily use that area as a car phone.

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

Ford Focus Titanium Is Worth It! — Love this car. Fully loaded. I can start it from my living room before I even leave the house. Great on fuel. Electronic features the best. Leather seats look like they are hand stiched. Best car .. besides my MGB.. I have ever owned. Thanks Ford!
