The Family Car That Doesnt Make You Feel The Urge To Start A Family? — Amazingly the Ford Focus is not a bad car at all. Considering all the requirements and the huge variety of alternatives out there I couldn't find anything else that does the job as well as this. Of course its a minor bonus that the zetec engine is a good performer and the handling is top notch as is the long list of standard equipment that happened to come with the car. And my wife likes it!

Pros: Cheap to own and very practicable

Cons: Its a Ford. Just like your Dad would drive

Nothing But Trouble — Bought the car brand new - new brakes at 11,000 miles, new brakes at 26,000 miles and new brakes at 46,000 miles. This is a stick shift car and I SHOULD have burned the clutch out...engine light has been lit now for 4 months (this is after I got it fixed after it was on for 2 months)...mileage is never above 25mpg, no matter what!

Pros: Lots of room to haul stuff - turns easily - zippy

Cons: Low mileage - lots of repairs - 3 brake replacements under 50,000 miles!

Decent Car For Beginners — I got this car at age 16, and it was wonderful.... Learned to drive manual with the transmission, very smooth, very easy to learn on.

Pros: lightweight, zippy, and great handling

Cons: almost too light, loose backend at high speeds.

5 Door 2.0l Manual - This Time Was The Much Nicer European Version — Exterior and interior styling was fantastic. A very funky car. The 2.0L engine was very good and car was quite quick. Ride and handling was fantastic (of course, it's a Focus). The car took some seriuos beating and stayed in one piece... a great motor!

Pros: Performance, drive and handling, great interior and inexterior styling and craftmanship

Cons: Can't think of one

Great On Gas, Horrible In Races — 2.0L SPI engine, 5 Speed Manual Transmission, Tons of aftermarket performance parts make this car a decent car for the beginner tuner that would like to steer clear of the civic craze.

Pros: Excelent fuel milleage, tons of seating room, handles corners well with stock suspension, tons of aftermarket support

Cons: Car is too light, Typical ford wheel well rot.

Not My First Choice By Far..but Good Car Nonetheless — Now, im not a fan of Ford cars by ANY means.. except maybe the higher trim mustangs (Cobra, Mach1 anyone?) and this thing looks like a big rollerskate with tires.. but i'll be damned if it doesn't have a nice lil burst of speed when the pedal is punched, and handles corners like a champ..you can have some cheapo, hard as nails, wal-mart tires on there and it'll hug the road, and gas effecient..who'd figure?

Pros: aero-dynamic, good bit of pep to it, gas milage

Cons: the shape that gives it it's aero-dynamics, and it's namesake.

Relatively Boring To Drive Stock, Responds Well To Modifications. Reliable. — This car is relatively slow stock, but has plenty of room and is a comfortable vehicle. It handles very neutrally and makes for an easy car to own as a first vehicle. It responds extremely well to modifications, and when done right can be an absolute show-stopper.

Pros: Inexpensive parts, ease of repair, good gas mileage, reliable.

Cons: No OEM parts have failed on me from normal driving. I have no complaints because when the car is used within its intentions, it's an excellent vehicle.
