    Friendly Review. — It had been customized.. (Audio system, Performance and interior appearance.) it gives me about 35 milles per gallon on high ways and 30 in the city. mechanical problems? none. and it is nice to drive,, soft and flexible to do 360* on a narrow 2 ways road. lol.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: it has 4 wheels that take me to work and school! lol

    Cons: all interior is made of plastic or any cheap material....

    She's A Good Little Car And I Plan On Having Her For A While — I got this cause my other new vehicles had all been trucks and i didn't really have any truck space. Now I have a nice size trunk and it still seats four even though its only a two door, but being a hatchback it also saves me from the sport classification on insurance.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: To go to work

    Cons: The a/c compressor shuts off during acceleration to save on the engine, bad for AZ.

    Join Focusfanatics.com! — It has lots of options for the windshield wiper speed which I Love! Then, there's a convenient CD holder on the left underside of the dash. It's fun to drive and able to weave in and out of traffic =] And, the seats are comfy.

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

    Pros: It's awesome because it's mine :P and I made it purple on the inside.

    Cons: I didn't like the green lighting for the interior stuff.

    I Love My Focus — I love my Focus, she took a bad hit and kept me safe! Bonus is unless you are me you would never know her entire ass end was trashed. She is a fun little car to drive even though she is missing a few cyclinders.

    Pros: fun to drive

    Cons: only one power outlet and it's on the dashboard

    Yes I Would Recommend This Car — performance-good over all Quality built very poor paint- chippping on front but never seen dirt roads. For a small car very roomy- can carry a lot with back seats folding down. Gas mileage could be better for a small car. I love driving it- can turn on a dime so never get lost.

    Pros: roomy, fun to drive

    Cons: should be better gas mileage-(understand new ones are better)  poor paint job

    Sporty — Sporty It's got a pretty good handling system on it. Pretty happy with the sound system for stock. I really enjoy driving it for the sake of it keeping up with my shifting, braking, and turns. I like the exterior looks, but would rather have a nicer color such as black or white. I however do not like the interior that Ford decided to go with, they could have gone sportier. I like the mileage it gets and the maintnance is simple! All in all a great car.

    Pros: Fun to drive, Speedy, Stock sound system

    Cons: Color, Interior
