    I Would Not Trade Her For The World... Well Maybe For My Girlfriend... — With the performance parts on her her acceleration is great with all around outstanding handling and braking. With the custom paint job the appearance isnt too bad just needs a new color. Great gas mileage and fun to drive around.

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

    Pros: The handling is the best part of the vehicle

    Cons: Avoid her because she will own you

    The Great Focus — looks great. European styled. built ford tough, and it handles amazing. in the 60 ft slalom its faster then a vette. exterior looks sporty in my opinion better then the svt focus looks. the interior is very roomy even the rear seats. mpg are great can get 30 mpg easy.

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

    Pros: handling is amazing

    Cons: not as good as the mk1 in europe

    Neutral — Where to start: Well I do think the car has its issues. The transmission has been replaced and the shop did a terrible job. The car has absolutely no acceleration. However, after replacing several parts of the suspension, the car does handle pretty well.

    Pros: Handling

    Cons: Acceleration

    Ford Focus — performance is quite good it has slight mods like k&n modified intake uprated front discs but it is non abs which is a big downer especially this time of year,acceleration ok if you can get the power down and its very revvy with the black top zetec much better engine than the earlier zetec no problems with valve or lambda sencor i ve had it for 12 months and covered 8000 miles not failed me yet, and not used a drop of oil, needed a wheel bearing for mot which was £15 and 10 mins work so no problem, fuel wise it gives me 35 to gallon and i would say im heavy footed so thats reasonable, build quality is exellent these more modern ford are much better built than earlier ones no rust the chassis is alley lined and wheel arches are plastic lined , inside the car is not too flash but it has power windows, pas, a/c, heated sceens, heated elec mirrors, it handles great for a car it size on the m way and round town its even better it just grabs the road and grabs it right, and the seats hold you just right and it quite comfortable, on the out side no major styling a set of diamond cut fox rs3 sit under the arches but the car need a drop of at least 50 mm its a 3 door so it looks sleeker and less grandad it just needs some tints and s/s exhaust.

    Pros: handling, reliable, good looks, economical, comfortable, sounds great, and its quick.

    Cons: but not quick enough,

    Fun Focus — One of the best fords around in my opinion. Its a real nice looking hatchback which looks good both interior and exterior. Lots of luggage space! Pretty quick, especially through 2nd and 3rd Good MPG's, can do around 50+ if driven like a nun! Fun to drive, its solid and handles well.

    Pros: Looks good, quick, good mpg's, handles well, comfy

    Cons: sounds like a tractor in the cold, few scratches on paint

    Absolutely Phenomenal Car — Incredibly solid car. The original clutch lasted for over 160,00 miles. Handles well, has a 2.0L 4 cyl. which is surprising quick (acceleration, speed, etc.). Has had very low maintenance costs and gets great fuel economy. Good looking car and (I own a sitck) fun to drive. Highly recommended. My mechanic has recommended it over many fancier european models.

    Pros: Inexpensive, easy to maintain, great fuel economy

    Cons: Not the most luxourious car

    Cookie's Focus — The only real complaint I have about my car is that the paint SUCKS!! It was poorly applied at the factory and now it's in the process of peeling off at the fenders; the hood looks like it has hair in it and the roof looks like it's been washed with sandpaper. Performance-wise, the car is a blast to drive. It may not be the fastest machine to burn up a road, but the Focus corners like it's a go-cart. Braking leaves something to be desired, with small, single piston disc brakes in front and puny, almost embarassing drums in the rear. My particular car doesn't have ABS. Cargo space is good, I can load up a week's worth of camping for me and my girlfriend, take lumber, move beds (up to queen-size!) or haul Ikea stuff home (if I take it outta the box and build it around my son)! Fuel economy is good, I get about 500 kms out of a 50 litre tank, The best range I've obtined was 618 kms. For a car that hardly costs anything to purchase, It's a stellar buy. Resale value (being an American car) is deplorable; you can buy a 2000 Focus these days for less than four grand Canadian.But, my cost of ownership is almost nothing. I've put on one set of tires, one set of brakes, one timing belt (it snapped at 200,000 kms), one ignition lock cylinder spark plugs (that was 100,000 kms ago-it's due again) and regular oil changes. It needs shocks at all corners and rear springs, but it's 8 years old with 212,000 kns on it, so I can't complain. I would (and have!) recommend this car to anyone looking for something cheap, reliable, good on gas and most of all, FUN! to drive.

    Pros: good on gas, decent cargo space, reliable, fun to drive

    Cons: paint was bad from factory, can't fold down only one half of rear seat, as the bottom or rear seats is bench-style.

    European 2000 Ford Focus 1.6 Trend By B-norway — Awsome handling! Engine could be stronger (1.6 litre 100bhp), but car still seems quicker than other brands with same specs. But the chassis.... love it!! Rust is a bit of a problem, but got this fixed, so mine is totally free from corrosion.. The 1998-2002 european focus is (in my opinion) the best looking focus until the 2008 models came... I've ordered white turn signal lamps, to replace the original orange, and expect this to make one h.... of a diffference on the car's apperance. Cost of Ownweship... Gets good gas mileage, due to the tiny engine.. About 0.6 litres per 10 km... (sorry about the metric figures here...) The funniest compact I have ever driven.. Only wish I could afford an engine...

    Pros: Amazing chassis... Handles almost like a sportscar, at a quater of the price

    Cons: Rust, small engines (1.4 an 1.6 most common, look for the 2.0), not the coolest image

    My First Car — This was my first car. It's nice looking and provides good service. Has a lot of room for passengers and in the trunk. The only drawback that I found was it's lack of acceleration. Services are economic. Has good fuel economy. I'd recommend it to a friend. Nice nice nice.

    Pros: Good quality, interiors and fuel economy

    Cons: Poor acceleration, average handling
