Cheap, Reliable And Fun — very fun, reliable and cheap car. pretty sporty considering its entry class level and fun to look at. serious exterior design, and pretty basic interior. seats are good but it does get somewhat uncomfortable after some hours driving. engine performs superb and its very efficient. suspension is way too soft, under sporty driving conditions understeer is unacceptable. brakes are good, but fade quickly and have to be replaced every now and then. steering is precise and keeps you connected to road surface roughness. while responding well to sudden changes. (except for suspension)

Pros: serious clean design
domestic
cheap
fun

Cons: tachometer missing
engine output
body roll (suspension)

Very Good Family Car — Very good family car. Roomy for the kids and the dog at the back. Not very impressed with it dying twice now on the side of the road. And no one seems to know what the problem is. Why is that fuse burning out!!!

A Cheap Reliable Car Thats Ok All Around. — It gets ok gas mileage, its needs a few things done to it to be a better car but its been very reliable to me and i love it for that. It is a base model car so there is not much on the car to brake. Its performance for a commuting car is very nice i think.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Its not a bad car over all, very reliable, 29 MPG over all

Cons: Its a base model car so there isnt much to it

Great Car Overall, Has Potential But Lacks The Engineering. Very Modifiable. — Fuel economy: Great! Handling: Above average; with suspension mods and Dunlop SP60's (passenger tire with an aggressive tread) I drive a lot of dirt roads ;) Power... ok. Surprised me the first couple times I punched it in bottom of 2nd. Ball joints are DANGEROUS! Tac weld some washers on top of them if you don't like trees, ditches, etc. 4 door model is decently roomy for 2 average sized people on a camping/whitewater kayaking trip. It's fun to drive, especially on back roads in the mountains.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fuel economy, handles well.

Cons: Suspension is cheap: sway bar and links, suspension knuckle, control arm, ball joints. Replace and WELD

Focus On It — First off I hate Focus's. the only reason I bought this is b/c It hadn' hit the books yet so I got it for 3k under the dealership retail price. That aside, It is a nice car and handles pretty well for stock. The mpg is another nice thing 25-28 city and about 30+ highway. I've had it for about 2 years now and its kind of grown on me. It's still NOT the fastest thing on the planet but i am starting to devise some plans.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: its reliable

Cons: its not a head turner
