    Avvvvvvveeeeerrrrrrrraaaaaage! — It had much better handling than I thought it would. Other than that, it was average in each and every way. It's a good car to buy if you really want simple and practical transport for a good price. I'd recommend it to a friend, but I'd never want one for myself. Too boring.

    Pros: handling, price, interior room

    Cons: boring as hell.

    Lots Of Small Problems — This car will keep you paying for repairs. Over the past year along, the following issues have arisen: -- read window rail broke - $350 -- Car floods when it rains - a puddle of water on the passenger front side -- heat and A/C blower out -- dashboard light out

    2002 Wasn't A Good Year, I Think. — It was good until one day on a road trip when the engine completly stopped on the freeway. After that it was always going into the shop.

    Pros: It was good on gas.

    Cons: There was always something wrong with it.

    5 Door, 2.0l Manual - A Lovely Car, Much Nicer Than The Us 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 car!

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

    Cons: I got too many speeding tickets

    It Just Wants To Have Fun. — I can't tell you how well this car handles. It's mackin' awesome, seriously. The steering response is tight, and the body roll is minimal. It's got a 130hp four cilinder DOHC, so if you really push it, it'll rev up to 6k and move along pretty good. If you don't push it though, it'll sip gas pretty nice. The interior and exterior are nice, but not at all perfect. One of the doors feels a little bit clunky, arm rest barely works, etc. But the steering wheel and seats are excellent.

    Pros: Handles EXCELLENT. Can accelerate decently fast if you really push it, but gets pretty good gas mileage too. Looks great,very few mechanical probs (so far). Soooo fun to drive.

    Cons: It's not by any means a speedster when it comes to just straight line acceleration. There's a coolant leak on the thermostat housing. Other than that, nothing.

    Only Problem So Far Was With The Ignition. — I have kept up with most of the preventive maintenance and she has come through like a charm. I drive many highway miles and with gas prices skyrocketing, it pays to drive a Focus.

    Owner for 2 years, 6 months

    Miles Driven per Year:141

    Pros: Still getting about 30-33 miles/gal on the highway

    Cons: One can only unlock the car from the drivers side.  Mine has no remote.
