Buy One.......or Two — theres nothing bad about this car.it gets great fuel mileage (30-45) when driven conservatively.at 70 it gets 35-37.its a great car to commute with i usually get 400-450 from 3/4 of a tank of gas (i never run past a 1/4 tank).it has excellent power adn lots of reserve for when you need to pass on those long 2 lane highways (138).

Pros: fuel economy

Cons: none what so ever

Good Backup Car — I got this car as a backup for when my regular vehicles are broken down, the car had been wrecked priore to my owning it so I knew would have some isues befor I bought it. Overall the car has been good to me. The main complaint I have is that the door handles are complete junk and are always braking.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It runs fine

Cons: The Doors handles are bad

Love It ! — above average performance in all aspects(122 bhp-6500rpm 0-100km/h: 10.5 top speed: 210 km/h or 130 mph), great quality,low noise level at normal speeds, very few repairs (within logical mileage), stylish but not very fancy either, "thirsty" if driven fast, too fun to drive - the best on that pricetag if you ask me- always predictable though, whenever I'm in my focus no matter where I go I always want to drive it as fast as I can! because this is the way cars like this should be driven... I know there are much faster and much better cars than mine, I overtake them often LOL

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: top of its class as far as driving fast is concerned

Cons: no rear disk brakes

Great Practical Small Car Thats Cheap To Run And Great To Drive. — Performance is adequate - 3rd gear is quite tall and, therefore, useful on twisty roads with short straight sections. Brakes are good - not too sharp - but easy to modulate in heavy traffic. Handling is very good - low speed ride is unsettled. Very reliable and tough, but some unexplained noises have developed - either suspension or steering. Styling hasn't dated - very distinctive. Interior quality has been surpassed by more modern designs, but controls are simple to use. Seat comfort could be better. It has been very cheap to run in terms of servicing and repairs, 42mpg economy out of town. Overall, good fun to drive but too much road noise.

Pros: Handling - feels very secure on twisty roads.

Cons: Firm ride in town, noisy at high speed

If Your Looking For A Cheap Way To Get About Town. A Focus Is The Way To Go — Great commuter car. Gets good fuel mileage in tow and highway. Its never left me stranded. Ive had to do relatively no major work to it other than normal maintenance. Its not a race car but its fun to take it out on the weekends and beat on it

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Fuel econmy

Cons: Not the most styleish

This Is An Excellent Car For Animal Owners! I Would Recommend This Car To Everyone. — I just bought my ford focus a few days ago... I love it. Great handling, smooth breaking, spacious interior.. Its perfect for my dog since the seats fold down. I was originally going to get a small suv because I like being able to put things in my car, but with this car I wont ever have that problem at all! Great for the city, easy to parallel park. Only complaint is some of the inside compartments are a little rattley. And there is a MAJOR blindspot on the drivers lefthand side. I like the simplicity of all the buttons.. Ive still got a 6cd changer, cruise control, and there are volume controls/radio seek on the side of the wheel, but they are all easy to operate. Its nice to have the bells and whistles of a 2010 car, but I dont want to feel like Im flying a spaceship! My car came with leather, which is high quality and a beautiful color. If you dont mind paying a little more, this would solve the upholstery issue everyone seems to have. A link to a picture of my car: http://i148.photobucket.com/albums/s23/mfergie889/car.jpg

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: spacious, smooth drive, quiet exceleration, not to mention beautiful.

Cons: rattley interior, big blindspot.

Its Good — Has pretty acceleration in first gear. my brakes always squeak but it breaks very effectively. handling is soso, body roll is way too much. hasnt needed repairs since ive owned it and i drive it pretty roughly. The radio stopped working though, itll turn on and off whenever it feels like it which is not often. interior is crappy, everything rattles (especially the air vents and side view mirrors) appearance is nice.the engine sounds really nice. its definitely not a car to be ashamed driving. car isnt wide making parking in tight spots easy. mine is black with black rims so im actually proud of how it looks. gas mileage is great if u drive within the speed limits. maintenance is minimal. its a fun car to drive because of the fact that it smokes stock honda civics and the quick acceleration

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Quick reliable car with great gas mileage

Cons: the vibrations rattle the air vents and side view mirrors.
