Ford Focus Zts 2.3l 4cyl 5speed —

I searched for over 4 months for a car before I found the Focus. I looked at A4s, Mustangs, Lancers, Imprezas, and so on before I realized I didnt want to spend 12k on a car with 100k miles on it. I got this Focus for $7500 from a dealer. It had only 55k miles, the 2.3l engine, manual trans, leather, power everything, 6 disc, speed control, and decent tires. I have put on around 2000 miles on this car and so far no complaints. This is the first manual trans car I have owned and I will never buy an automatic again. Sitting in traffic is my only problem, having to shift every five seconds gets old. But when the lanes clear up there is nothing like dropping it in third and before I know it the speedo reads 90. The ride is sporty so even at 60 on a cloverleaf feels stable. However a small dip or pothole will cause the car to sway a bit. My first few tanks of gas gave me about 26-28 mpg mixed. Im pretty happy with that considering my lead foot. At certain angles this car looks awesome, the back half riding tall with the spoiler especially. I am not a fan of the front end with the short hood and mini grill. This is a small car so it is very easy to park and navigate through the city. Im 6'2'' but I have plenty of head and leg room. The trunk is huge! A full size cooler, my lacrosse gear, spare tire, toolbox, and there is still room. The Focus is a fun little car that packs a punch for half the price.

Pros: Affordability, Mileage, Duratec power, Sporty ride, Rear end looks

Cons: Rear drum brakes, Front end looks, Weak head lights

My Ford Focus Edge — I have had my car 3 years and i adore it! It's a 1.6i and has all the extra perks - alloys, air con, cd player as standard. A pleasant car to drive and i have been miles in it - Gatwick, Manchester, Birmingham and around South Wales. Best car i have ever owned :)

Pros: Reliable, good on petrol, nice to look at...blah blah blah :)

Cons: Hasn't let me down yet....so far so good!

Mediocre — initially we really liked it. the stereo system was good apart from it got louder and quieter when you accelerated or breaked which got a bit annoying. Also i found when driving for long periods of time or frequently for numerous journeys i found the seats uncmfortable and my shoulders and lower back ached. It broke down when we were going somewhere important!

Pros: good looks, quite efficient on fuel. spacious in the back seat

Cons: impractical  for baby in 3 door version! not particularly comfortable

Oliver! — Ride comfort is fairly good. Its a good middle of the road car for someone who is just looking for that next step up from having a small car.

Good Engine, That's It — The Focus has good acceleration and pickup for a wagon, however I don't find much else to be good. The brake system is very abrupt, even for ABS. The trunk feels like a tin pan when you open and close it. Ample space in the trunk. The Focus handles like my Odyssey. The light and wiper controls are rather confusing. No adjustable steering wheel??

Pros: Acceleration, Pickup

Cons: Build Quality, Braking, Handling, Steering Wheel
