    Just Love My Focus. — Although the model is almost 10 years old, until recent it could stand the compettion of some newer model of other producers. This car was build by enthusiasts and the three doors hatch back just looks, well, perfect. And still serves as the inspiration for todays cars. I love my Focus.

    Pros: Performance, Stability. Build quality. Appearance.

    Cons: Are there any ?

    A Great Family Car — Theres nothing i can say about this car that i hate, its really good overall, i bought it for room, as my children are in car seats, and they take up alot of room in the back, and with car seats in it gives plenty of leg room, the car is cheap on parts, cheap to run, and you get really good performance and mileage out of it the only reason im changing is coz i would likw something newer. performance - the car does everything i want, theres plenty of power when i need it, the braking is excellent, and the handling is great build quality - Ive a confession to make, ive had to do no repairs in over a year, tyres, exhaust are all A1 condition, its regularly serviced by the dealer, and they mention straight away if anything needs replacing and it hasnt, as i use this car with my family, i want everything perfect. Appearance - As the car is nearly 8 year old, it looks abit dated compared to todays cars, hence why im upgrading, the interior is great, all the gadgets are easily accessible, cost of ownership - CHEAP

    Pros: The car - its cheap and fun

    Cons: er...........nothing

    My First Brand New Car — This is my first baby. Eight years old and I still see it as a new car. I will drive it to it's death, or trade it in and upgrade it for another sporty five speed. It's fun to drive, though don't race anyone while you're using the A/C as that sucks all the power! Nowadays 130hp does not seem like a lot, but it's all in your reaction time, to be first off the line! Plus my son loves it when I accelerate fast! (He loves cars!) I have no idea what the cost of ownership is compared to other cars in it's class. It's a money pit, as all the parts have reached their life expectancy. Build Quality: In the beginning it was recall hell. Note to self: never buy a car in it's first model year, too many trips back to the dealer, I was on a first name basis with the service department. Interior: steam cleaned and detailed this summer. I love a clean car. Exterior: Often mistaken as a new car as the exterior styling has not changed much. Though with all the door dings and dents from other people's cars and rouge rocks hitting the car; it's looking it's age. New windshield slated for spring '09, if the crack does not spread any futher.

    Pros: Good on gas, if i drive like a Sunday Driver

    Cons: Replacing tail lighs, signal lights, license plate lights etc. is a job unto itself. A real pain.

    Ford Foucus Zetec, Nippy Bugger Creeps Up On You — I love this car, its very reliable and does get quite a good speed on it, its lovely to drive and in the 4 years i've had her the only things I have had to change are the tyres, Would def recommend this car. It hasnt got a cd player though or a sunroof and i would have thought that the time of year it was built those features should have been standard

    Pros: Comfy, quiet, looks nice, spacious, good boot size, easy to check oil water etc

    Cons: no sunroof, no cd player, highh insurance group

    2000 Ford Focus Lx — bought with 36K have put almost 30 k on it since 2004, biggest things were ignition needed to be replaced and the AC needs fixing. everything else is mediocre but it gets me places and is reliable tremendous amount of body roll in corners as there is no rear sway bar. Gas milage tends to be near 28 but can easily drop to 22 when doing spirited city driving No ABS is fun when you want to have fun but not good when you lock up tires during hard braking

    Pros: reliable, decent gas milage, small so it fits in small places

    Cons: little power

    Somewhat Sporty, Immesurably Practical — Whoever knocks on owning a hatchback should seriously consider a gen 1 Focus ZX3 (or equally fun to drive VW Golf/Rabbit/GTI). Sure it was a goofy looking pod for transportation, but the combination of a nearly flat, deep load floor and a straight roof made for superior hauling capability over most other compact cars on the road. With the seats folded up, it will swallow 5 people comfortably, 4 people and their golf clubs, or 3 people and luggage for a 10 day vacation (no lie). The interior design was equally as goofy as the exterior, and it was a sea of black plastic, however it proved durable over 5 years and 80k miles of ownership (from 2003-2008). The sound quality of the stereo was acceptable. The front seats actually proved quite supportive and more comfortable than one would expect from a small car. The Zetec engine was eager, but hampered by the Ford 4-speed transaxle. Acceleration was anemic for highway merging, but the okay torque was completely adequate around town. Despite these woes, highway mileage was decent enough, and it didn't hunt for gears on hills at highway speed. Durability was acceptable, but not stellar. No major problems came up, however I had to remember that no matter how hard I push it, it will never be as fast as my Mustang or the Jags. Handling, on the other hand, was a major strong point for the car. It took corners with ease, very little body roll, or tire noise. The ride quality was equally impressive (even with the 16 inch alloys and 205/45R tires). Engine and wind noise were rather excessive at highway speeds, however a good set of tires can cure any road noise issues you may have.

    Pros: utility, seating comfort, RIDE/HANDLING BALANCE, fuel economy, interior and exterior materials durability

    Cons: transmission hampered acceleration, styling not for everyone, old-car problems came on a little early in its life (around 90k miles, as opposed to about 120k for my Mustang)
