    Great For A Daily Driver And With A Little Modding A Contender At The Track — Performance : the ford focus is pretty quick for a 2.0 liter 4 cylinder and the handling is amazing for an econobox car with its control blade rear suspension and through the cones has a faster time than a jag xj8 or a bentley continental. Build quality : the only issue i have had personally with build quality is the springs break but the problem is eliminated with the svt springs or aftermarkets Appearance : im not a fan of economy cars but its better looking imo than a 02 civic or a chevy aveo so as economy cars go its one of the better looking ones Cost of ownership : 30 - 35 mpg and parts are cheap when they need repair Fun factor : if your into drag racing you may not have fun in a focus but for auto x or really anything with turns its a great car because the handling if you put a 21mm swaybar in the rear the handling will amaze you

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: the cornering

    Cons: if you dont work on your own car

    50-50. — Fun to drive, very versatile. Before I bought it, I was hoping that I could get away with little repairs after re-assembling the clutch. But to no avail. It seems like one thing goes wrong, right after I fix the last.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Fun to drive.

    Cons: Time-consuming maintenence.

    Very Fun To Drive — It gives you good quality and performance for what you pay for it. The quality it offers isnĀ“t the best but you get lots of accesories. It is very fun to drive even with its FWD. If you really want fun you have to unlimit the speed chip.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Price

    Cons: It is a Ford

    Its A Good Little Car — its just a base modle with A/C 2.0 liter split port with a 5 speed manual trans. I have upgraded the tires to performance Falken ZE 923. the exterior of the car is a little rock chipped but the paint is otherwise good. The interior is factory exept the stereo which is a pioneer 4500mp with dual 10" subs. Gas mileage is good, going 650km on a 45liter tank

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: i love the gas mileage and the acceleration of the manual trans

    Great Car That Is Inexpensive To Buy And Operate — Overall a very good car. It has decent room inside, rides well, and gets great gas mileage with its 2.0L 4cyl. rated @ 110hp & 125 ft-lbs with a 4 speed auto transmission. Wind noise is a slight issue though. The car has excellent suspension and soaks up bumps well yet is a bit sporty. The rear suspension pioneered a new multi-link system that is cheap to build like torsion suspensions. In a slalom test it was faster than luxury sports cars. The SE has alloy rims standard with disk brakes in front and drums in the rear. Stopping distance isn't bad. Power locks and windows also are standard. with SE. It has a very room trunk for its size. Mine has key-less entry as an option which is a nice extra. I haven't had it long but reliability should be average to good.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: gas mileage, interior room, inexpensive

    Cons: acceleration, speed

    Ford Focus 1.8 Zetec 2002 — Performance-acceleration is great for a heavyish family car,braking is sharp but not as strong as other cars.mynes sitting on eibachs, handling is the best! build quality-no repairs so far, no squeaks or rattles,any work that does need doing can be done yourself, easy car to work on. appearance-fantastic looking car,made even more exciting by mods which are relatively cheap and easy to replace Costs-cheapest car to run ive had despite larger engine size, over past 10 months only had to change the plugs and leads.(leads were only to personal preferance) fun factor- Amazing car to drive, sounds great with induction and exhaust, through this car into any corner (fast or tricky), you'll come out the other end with a huuuge grin on your face! :)

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: everything

    Cons: none known as of yet...had no problems

    You Cant Go Wrong With One — I've owned many fords, fiesta right up to transit and of course a couple of Focus's. If you want a car that is built well, drives well, reasonable economy and performance and stick like glue, you can't go wrong with one of these. Must say that I would like to get my hands on a new RS - YUMMY

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Steady as a rock in corners

    Cons: You want to go off road, in Afganistan
