Great Price, Great Dependibility — Great Car All Around. Handles light and zippy, manual transmission is great around town and getting to highway speeds in a jiffy. HUGE cargo room for this little Hatchback. I moved to and from college and all over the country with no problem by putting down the back seats and using a roof rack. I have barely put any money into it except basic maintenance, tires, brakes, oil, Came with a great stereo, but I had to have the 6CD changer replaced six or seven times while under warranty. Now it hasn't had a problem Manual Transmission in crawling traffic is a pain (but that is with any car). The Blower Capacitor goes out almost every spring due to condensation. A $20 dollar part but still a pain when it is hot. Seats are kind of junky, my rear seat tore from some one sitting on it and it was just a normal person.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Super Dependable
Low maintenance
Great Driver
Huge cargo space
Good All around Gas Mileage

Cons: Back seat is only good for short rides

Decent Transportation, Not Much More — I stumbled into my Focus in the winter of 04, when my mx6 broke down, and I regret deciding to do so. She was unreliable, had a faulty transmission, and got 15 mpg on a 4 cylinder. $13000? Child, please. This one got wrecked into a hill at Metro Airport when an ex-friend of mine drunkenly stole it from me, with me in the passenger seat. Insurance wrote us a check, and I don't miss it at all.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: GREAT handling, easy modability.

Cons: Slow, unreliable, no support from dealer, bad gas mileage.

The 5 was very useful for the time I had one. At 5 9 tall, this vehicle was a comfortable drive. Very good on gas.
