Good Gas Saver Not Very Fast — I did kinda alot to the motor and was not happy with the performance it gave me at all. it was decent for a 4cyl but wanted more. braking was great. handling was great. build quality was cheap. has plastic screws all over the car. loved the way the car looked and gave great gas mileage.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Gas saver

Cons: Slow

What You See Is What You Get... Cool, Fun And Pleasure — Good power but not excelent. Good economy but not excelent. Handling could be better... it's better to put some bags of potatoes in the back! I love the looks and the overall built quality is very good, with some minor downsides. But the best is the Ford's driving... dynamic, direct, responsive. Some kind of stiff to some people but I like it. I didn't drive yet the TDCI but people say that's much better engine than this one... and more expensive too...

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Looks; Driving; Big luggage; Ergonomics

Cons: Handling, rear a bit loose; Choose for the TDCI, if you find one cheap

Great Economical Car — I purchased this car for my mother, but soon discovered that it is an awesome car for my long commute. Now I drive it as often as I can. The gas mileage is awesome, and it lacks nothing in performance. The car has been trouble-free. The ride is surprisingly smooth for such a small car, and the engine is much more refined than my Escort. The Focus is everything I liked about my Escort...and then some. The heat and air conditioning in the Focus are also much better than the Escort although not quite as powerful as my Mercury Sable. Due to the ridiculous gas prices, I'm seriously considering a new Focus when it is time for another car. I just wish they still made the Focus as a station wagon.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great gas mileage, good seating position, comfortable

Cons: Too much road feel, could be a bit quieter on the highway

Cheep — gets me where i need to go. is good on gas. very clean. nice interior and the better wheels. bought it for $1500.00 us. for the most part its been a good investment in a used car. if you want a car that is cheep and easy to find used. if it has low enough miles and the price is right then get it.

Buy A Honda — The performance of this car is satisfactory due to the fact that it is on a sport suspension and the 5 speed manual transmission helps improve engine respnse pretty well. the build quality is alright. so far it hasnt fallen apart or broke down altogether. the appearance is pretty shaky. its got its bumps and dents but its holding out. the cost of ownership is super low. gas lasts forever and parts arent terribly expensive. fun factor. this car couldnt race much of anything but its somewhat entertaining to drive being a manual and the sport suspension.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: good on gas

Cons: Fix Or Repair Daily
