    Embarrasing Ugly Car! — This car really was a piece... No matter how well I kept up the brakes, maintenance, etc.. it ALWAYS ran poorly.. (and the brakes always squealed - i was told this was a trait of Fords) It had little to no pickup and there wasnt anything great about the handling either. Also... what an UGLY model!!! .. I would guess the only good thing about this car was the gas mileage.. It normally only cost me about $40 to fill and it lasted a long time... Save yourself alot of headaches and dont buy a Ford...

    Pros: Good gas mileage

    Cons: pretty much everything other than the gas..

    Nice Used Ecnobox — It's a slower car, with only 130 hp, but its peppy enough to be fun, really solid handling, direct steering and good clutch with a smooth shifter, extremely reliable, not a single problem with it yet. It is also good on fuel, getting near as makes no difference 50 mpg (can gal.) on the highway

    Pros: Cheap reliable, fun to drive

    Cons: low on power, could be quieter

    Angelina — i bought my focus in january its solid and is amazing to drive. after owning it for a few month i wanted to make it look abit different because theres soo many about, so i tinted the rear three windows and got some 17 inch alloys. but ford archers are massive so the wheels looked small so i got it lowered 50mm it looks alot better and corners like its on rails without losing any ride comfort. im really proud of my car and would recommend it to anybody.

    Pros: looks, reliable, build quality

    Cons: only got a 1.6

    Its A Sportscar Disguised As A Fourdoor! — The preformance of the ZTS is iffy. It all ready depends on who is driving it. I, for example, love fast corners and huge accel. Therefore this is a fun fun fun car! The appearance is overall pretty and fun. Gas, on the other hand, is not so good for mileage. I'm constantly filling the damn thing.

    Pros: Fun, Fast, Powerful

    Cons: Gas

    2002 Ford Focus Zts — I bought this car used from a friend who had it since new. It is a well built very fuel efficient 4 cylinder car. I like the ZTS package for the sportier appearance and firmer suspension. For doors make it good for the family. Four cylinders make it good at the gas pump.

    Pros: fuel mileage, four doors

    Cons: low power, not a beautiful car

    Solid Focus — The Focus 2.0 Zetec was a useful car at the time after having a company car for 2 years. Much better performance than the usual 1.6l and 3 door looks helped with the sportier connotations. One service it needed was reasonable but it did go through 5 tyres in 1 year at £100 each for the 17" alloys. Overall was slightly boring!

    Pros: Running costs, good size, 2.0l engine

    Cons: Rather boring, tyre problem

    Would Recommend This Car, See Them Around A Lot My Sister Went Out And Brought One — General performance of my car is pretty good. Acceleration and brakings are smooth which gives good handling. Gear change is also smooth. Havnt had to get any repairs as yet. Have kept up with regular services, although will need new tyres soon. Interior and exterior are both excellent apart from a smoke burn on the roof inside from 1 of my idiot friends(spewing mad)!! All in all it is a great little car which I love!! Took a bit to get use to the europien type where indicators and windows are on opposite sides but all is gud. Great car which I love to drive!! Best car I've had yet apart from me Holden Sunbird!!

    Pros: Positives are that is a roomy little car, it has stereo control at the steering wheel, fog lights

    Cons: needs more storage compartments

    Kris Born's Ford Focus Se — I like the style of the 2000-2003 model the best, so I am happy with that, although later models have a bit of an edge on performance. I wish it was manual, but nonetheless it is still a smooth ride and can be quite fun if ran the right way. I wish it were sportier, but then it probably would have been a lot more expensive overall. I may end up putting some aftermarket parts on it to make it more appealing, and I have already added Fusion speakers in all doors which perform very well (especially with techno which fits well with the fact that Ford created this car off of a European inspired platform).

    Pros: Great on gas, looks appealing, smooth and fairly quiet ride.

    Cons: Not very sporty, could be more fun to drive, doesn't look like a Lambo :(
