    I Wish I Got The 5 Door. It'd Make People Think I Have Friends. — I beat this car, hard. I've put over 60k miles on it, driving cross country. I bought it in 2006, and have just driven her in to the ground. She's a great, reliable car. The only problem I had was when the oil change place didn't screw the cap back on properly. Either way, this is a reliable car that puts up with all the abuse I give her.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Reliability

    Cons: Tiny engine

    My Focus — I love the handling and it gets pretty good gas mileage. Its fun to drive and the maintenance costs are very low. The only real issue I have is that my cigarette lighter/plug thingy doesn't work. I like it.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Looks Nice, Good Handling, Good Gas Mileage

    Cons: Plug doesn't work, keyhole is only on the driver's side

    What You'd Expect. — I had to drive one of these for a while. It was okay. The acceleration, braking, and handling were about what you'd expect from a modern economy car. Nothing special, although the steering was exceptionally precise. The interior was average, but why is the center storage unit right above the parking brake handle? And what's with the weird shaped steering wheel? Overall, not a bad ride, but it's still not up to Japanese quality.

    Pros: Good steering.

    Cons: Some weird ergonomics.

    2006 Focus St — It is a nice little car. Everything on the car except for the wheels and tires are straight from the factory. It has a pretty peppy Duritec 23 I-4 engine. The seat warmers were a necessary option for the Minnesota winter.

    Pros: Cheap but fun to drive

    Cons: I wish it was all wheel drive

    Ford Focus St 2 Fun, Fun, Fun. — Not once did this car ever disappoint! No one ever passed me or set off from a standing start ahead of me, I am a girl racer! haha. The noise was phenominal and the pure acceleration was a dream, i loved it! It gripped the road, was fast, fun and exciting - all a great fun car should be! (almost like a man! haha). Downside was the huge amount of fuel it drank! But still, small price for great fun!

    Pros: Great looking, great handling, fast, fun and fab.

    Cons: Lots of fuel required and v easy to be heavy footed!
