Fuel Efficient — I liked the fact that its good on gas! It rides very smooth also. Low mileage for its year. It doesnt really work well for me because I have a bigger family size and its too small for all of us.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: saves gas

Cons: too small for my family size

A Versatile And Efficient Design — This car has given reliable performance and consistent gas mileage (26 city / 35hwy) over 126,000 miles of ownership. Focus SE wagon has sport handling with nice manual shift. A very dog friendly cargo space that also has adapted easily for camping and other recreational use. The roof rack can also support luggage, snowboards, etc. adding to convenience on long trips. Interior trim has retained a clean, uncracked finish. Tires seemed to wear out more often, especially when failing to do regular rotation. When car is fully loaded the engine power is fine for flat interstates and modest grades, but challenged for steep mountain roads which require downshifting. No major problems after 10 years, only the usual replacements of tires, batteries, shocks.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Euro style sport handling, high MPG, good rear passenger space, generous cargo space, comfortable seats, smooth manual transmission

Cons: moderate noise from wind and road, less heat and ac for rear passengers, suspension squeaks and rattles at slow speeds.

Loves My Focus — good litle car. Had to only do minor repairs like thermostat, battery, spark plugs/wires, timing belt and maintenance services like fuel filter, transmission flush and oil changes. When I need to "go" this vehicle has plenty enough power to get me where I need to go. I can go weeks without filling up on gas. In the snow...I tried to skid for fun but the cars front wheel drive takes control

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: I own it

Cons: Its getting older

Ages Very Well. — Great car overall, very little to go wrong. If anything does go wrong it's very easy to do your own repairs. Parts are easily got. The build quality is excellent, and the handling is great in corners and twisty roads. The low engine models are underpowered. The 1.6/1.8 models onwards are the models to go for. This is a euro spec focus.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Handling, nice to drive and look at.

Cons: Go buy one already.

Overall A Good, Reliable Car. Decent Enough Power And Space (talking Europe Here!) — performance - acc. is ok (except for the electronics), braking ok, handling super quality - somewhat sluggish in some parts, but overall good German quality appearance - hey, this car was built in 2001 - so nothing really fancy now... but still somewhat cool... cost - hm, could have better fuel mileage and lower costs for inspections... but ok fun factor - yeah, if you don't care about fuel prices... or if you want to get new tires ;-)

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: reliable, easy to keep it happy ;-)

Cons: electronics... sometimes, it's better to stick to good 'ol mechanics...

Its A Way To Get Around, But Not Much Fun. — I dont really like it...Ive had alot of problems with it from widows that dont work to this random jerky thing it will do occasionally when Im cruising .. The catalytic converter is shout so my engine light is on all the time...The air doesnt work and it doesnt have much power now the CD player randomly goes off and I have to hit it like the Fonz to get it back on...it is a means to an end, it doesnt look too bad so thats a plus...the only thing about it that is in the same ballpark as my dream car is that its made by Ford...I'm a die hard Mustang gal...

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: its better than walkin

Cons: Its a pain in the ass, has no power and its boring.

Loved It And Lived It. — I posted a pretty bad picture of my focus, but anyways haha Looks great when cleaned! You can fit more people in the car than you would assume! Lots of trunk space. This thing is a tank and never let me down. I put over 60,000km on it in my first 11 months with this thing. Drove it all through highschool and in this picture it has approx. 130,000km (april 2010)

Pros: Reliable

Cons: It's just not a sports car hahaha
