    Good Reliable Transportation — I have experienced only one flaw with the vehicle. The rear window defrost has not fully worked since I got the car but I got it used. I have had great success in reliability and enjoy the manual transaxle. It shifts solid and the clutch does not seem to slip at all. I have got has high as 35 mpg on the highway avg and as bad as 24 mpg for around town avg.

    Pros: Reliable and fun to drive, ride quality is good and interior remains tight and no rattles

    Cons: Mine has no A/C or cruise so its hot in the summer and highway driving can be more tiring.

    Sporty Little Car — Excellent little car, sporty & fun! If set up right can have real performance! Recommend a cold air intake or chip or if you want real power, stick a mustang 5.0 with a set of shorty headers!

    Pros: EXCELLENT ACCELERATION, ALLOY WHEELS, DOHC

    Cons: SUSPENSION

    Good Commuter... — We bought this car new and honestly have had very few problems with it, its just that its not high quality (example we've had the carpet tear up for no real reason) but it drives fine - its solid, but the performance and quality is pretty low. It's a good little commuter car and we'll drive it until it dies!

    Pros: Economical, good gas mileage.

    Cons: Low performance/quality.

    An Economical, Practical Runabout — My focus was well priced and has been a good, reliable car it isn't the most glamorous or sporty vehicle but you could do a lot worse.

    Pros: Good boot and interior space, decent handling and fairly low maintenance.

    Cons: A little slow off the mark, not the prettiest of cars and the headlights aren't the best
