Best As A First Car — Since this was my first car and a generous hand-me-down from my uncle, I didn't have much of a choice. I've been driving it for more than a year now. I've had to fix the brakes many times. Braking is kind of slow and a bit unresponsive. The exhaust is very loud and rumbles the car, which a mechanic told me is very typical of old Focuses. It is a "cute" car, but does not have a front end that I particularly like (reminds me of a shark nose?). As it got older, gas mileage got worse and worse. I even took note: 6.750 gallons of gas only got me 145 miles - that's only 21.5 mpg FOR A 4-CYLINDER! Honestly, I feel that anything that can go wrong with this car....eventually will. Thankfully, the parts are generic and not too expensive. I do like that it is small and can "squeeze" into spaces and the blindspot is not bad either. Overall, it's a great first car, but I need an upgrade.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Not expensive to repair, small, spacious

Cons: Bad gas mileage as it ages, acceleration gets "stuck"

Amazing Car To Drive — i have owned this car for 2 years and it is definitely a work in progress still ... its always changing the appearance and style but its so much fun ... custom led taillights ... hid headlights ... eibach sportline lowering springs ... custom painted stock 5 spoke rims ... interior neons ... cold air intake ... alpine stereo ... amp and 2 - 15 inch kicker subs ... and the gas mileage is amazing even driving with a lead foot ... my next purchase is definately going to be a ford focus zx3 svt ... faster and better looking car in my opinion ... i love my car ... enough said lol

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

Pros: sporty economy car and the handling is excellent and its even better with a lowering kit

Cons: could be faster

3/5 Stars. — Perf: Acceleration is alright. Not stellar. Braking is excellent, can stop on a dime. Handling is quite remarkable. Easily takes corners at 80kph+. (Granted, my car is lowered 2"). Speed: I have personally reached ~175kph. Car maxes out at around 190kph. Build: Not so great. You get the lousy groan from the power steering pump. (Standard with all Fords after 10yrs). Tends to shake a bit over 150kph. Appearance: dents easily and looks like a shrunken minivan, but looks pretty shnazzy. Cost: Very cheap. Original price is usually below $2500, and it gets about 30mpg. Fun Factor: awesome. Not jaw-dropping or head turning, but hauls ass pretty well.

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

Pros: Fast, fun, good handling and seats 5!

Cons: Lousy Ford parts.

Its An Average Car. Can't Say Much. I Have It So Obviously It Seemed Like A Good Deal. —

Preformance: Acceleration is below average (4 cylinders, stock, but good for a plain 4 cylinder) Brakes are great. It will stop quick if you have dy tarmac under the wheels. It handles verry well, hard to get it to slide unless its in the winter. its too light and being fwd it gets tricky to handle. Build Quality: The exhaust has a hole rusted into it, and one of the exhaust supports rusted off. its rusting below the front doors twords the front wheels. Its holding togeather well for all the stuff they put on the roads here. Appearance: The interior is alright, few stains here and there on the seats. besides that, its average. nothing too fancy (its a focus, its what i'd expect from this kind of car). Outside, it looks like a focus, thats about all i can say. Cost Of Ownership: Mileage is in the mid/high 20's (normally around 26). Some of the pieces in the exhaust have rusted out, but a coat hanger and a spare piece of steel fixed the problem. Its a good car, but the grime in the winter eats away little by little. Fun Factor: its an alright car to drive. fun to take on the back roads. no complaints as far as this goes. if you want to have fun, you can have fun with it, but its not like you get that feeling turning the key or anything like that.

Pros: Great mileage, hugs the road nicely.

Cons: slow to get up to speed, not good in snow.

Not Sure I Will Ever Let It Go :) — Almost 140,000 miles and no major problem. Why buy a new car when a few thousands added in aftermarket parts make it still turn heads on the street... I am looking forward to the next 140,000 miles :) Never had any problem, knocking on wood!!!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: I love it!!!

Cons: It's mine :)

Good Car If You Want Good Gas Mileage. — When I first got it, there was a hole punched in the vacuum line. My friend's dad ordered me a new one. Now it gets unbelievable gas mileage. However, I've had to put in some more money with this car (new transmission, etc.)

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great MPG - 35+/- city 40+/- hwy

Cons: Unreliable
