2001 Focus Lx — Basic commuter car is all a Focus is. No power, sub par handling, and just ok braking. Fuel millage is decent however, mine had engine problems, so it wasn't what it could have been. Still, there was somethin I liked about the car. It definitely wasn't a bad lookin car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fuel milage, styling, price

Cons: reliability, size, performance

Ford Focus...the Mighty Little Car — A great little car for the money. Good pickup and braking. Lots of leg and head room in the front. The backseat is a little small. Pretty decent steering. All around a fun car to drive. I love it the car/

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Price, performance

Cons: Limited backseat space.

2001 Ford Focus SE WagonReview

How Can Something So Big Be So Small? — When viewed as a stand alone vehicle, the Focus Wagon SE was a perfectly workable solution for a mother and her children, but don't ask dad to ride along because he won't fit if he's above average height. Headroom isn't a problem, the wagon has an extended roof line. No, the front seats simply don't travel far enough for dad to get his legs unfolded, and the front passenger seat is like a torture device for gents over 6' tall. The car is adequately powered, but fuel economy is not up to snuff at about 25 MPG. We traded a 1998 Escort SE Sedan for this car and the performance and fuel economy drop off was astonishing. My wife misses this car because she could fit in it just fine, but I did a happy dance the day we sold it.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Huge cargo area

Cons: Tiny front seats

Boring Car. — It was an OK car. It was either but this or buy a people carrier and I would rather walk than drive a people carrier. It was nothing special, it was ok at the time as I had a newborn baby.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: It wasn't a people carrier.

Cons: It was boring.

If You Want Something To Start With And Want Something Durable,this Is A Good Car. — the audio is really amazing depending on what you're listening.it's my first car and it's great when you're just starting...plus low gas mileage,the accelaration is good but i've seen better,the interior is comfortable and there's enough space. =D

Pros: low gas mileage

Cons: if you're looking for high performance avoid it.
