2004 Ford Focus Review
Tim says:
Great car loved the wagon for travelling and all and get me to work and to my girl but in the winter it handles really good but it also burns alot more gas so its like a V8 with only a 15 gal tank because it went from 2 or 3 weeks to not even 5 days also the transmission failed but you would expect that after 200K miles on it
vs2004 Nissan Altima

Power Ranked 2004 Nissan Altima worse.
"Never had that problem with getting up to 65 before the ramp ends and I need to merge the altima took a lil longer and considering my car is a 2.0L vs the altima 2.5 engine"
Handling Ranked 2004 Nissan Altima worse.
"unlike the altima it never got stuck in the snow with me going sideways and the focus feels a lot more responsive and quick which means it wont slide as easy"
Looks/Style Ranked 2004 Nissan Altima better.
"Focus for this generation was run down and basic the altima has some class to it"

"more comfortable and easy to adjust the focus was pushing on my body fat"
Back Seats Ranked 2004 Nissan Altima better.
"Larger can fit more comfortably"
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2004 Nissan Altima worse.
"i had a wagon so there was tons of room since altima never had a wagon version of the car"
Family Car Ranked 2004 Nissan Altima better.
"the fact that I know the altima has a lot better in the crash test rating unlike the focus"
Value Ranked 2004 Nissan Altima better.
"Get more for your money the check engine light came on only 8 times in 14 years vs me had 12 issues in 3"
Would Buy Ranked 2004 Nissan Altima worse.
"Better for hauling my stuff and not need to worry about the trunk when I can stack it up"

Great Handling, Sporty Little Pocket Rocket — I've owned this car for over 7 years. I'm still impressed with the comfort of the Recaro seats and the handling. It still has a contemporary look despite being 10 years old. Fortunately I don't have to ride in the back seat because it's too small for my 6'3" tall body. I've done the normal maintenance, brakes, oil changes, etc... Other than that the reliability has been great. I would recommend this car as it's a fun to drive, great handling, sporty little pocket rocket.

Pros: Handles great, excellent Recaro bucket seats.   Good gas mileage.  

Cons: Small back seat

Very Fun To Drive! — I have only had it for a short while but I love every inch of it so far. Gas mileage is great and plenty of "get up and go" for a 4 cylinder. I sold my saturn and bought this I like the sporty look of this one better.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: I just bought this car and I love it!! Fuel economy is awesome and handles great. I have always had 5-speed so acceleration is always good but this one has spunk!

Cons: My stereo doesn't work but that's an easy fix

Avoid It Unless Its In Your Price Range. Thats What Happened Too Me. — The acceleration is piss poor. The braking is sub par with rear drum brakes, the handling is decent. The only thing that is nice is the steering. It is tight quick and snappy. The build quality feels low and its been almost a month and three things don't work, the window, wipers, and AC. Its interior is basic at best, the exterior isn't great and its not sharp. Its just a compact sedan. Gas mileage could be better. Its No better than a six cylinder of the same year. Maintenance appears to be cheap from Google results. Its not really fun to drive, but what automatic car is.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Excellent Handling.

Cons: Shitty Acceleration and overall performance

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: fun!

Cons: its a ford

Not The Best But Good Value For Money. — Cheap to run, and decent performance. I have had no problems with this one so far and don't expect any. It's very practical and parts are easy to come by if you need them. I find the seats to be rock hard and there is no lumbar support so for long journeys its literally a pain in the you know what.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Relaibility

Cons: Nightmare to repair - the engine bay was designed by committe.e

No Comment Till I Get Real Car — this is a good little car but the problem is that its a little car but not as bad as other little eco cars. i also love the fact that its a ford and i still have that to be proud of.

Pros: cheap quality car that gets me from a->b

Cons: it has a straight 4 engine and no power

Great Car, Gets Me From Point A To Point B With No Stress. — Performance -Acceleration: decent for a 4 cylinder eco car. -Braking: smooth and precise -Handling: very sharp Build Quality -No repairs so far, no flaws either. Appearance -Comfy on the inside, simple on the outside Cost of ownership - Great on gas, gotta great warranty as well. Fun Factor -Great to cruise, not a sports car obviously. The best part is waiting for the gas to run out.

Pros: Top reason to drive this car: fuel economy & reliability

Cons: none I can think of unless if you want something fast.
