Best Car I've Owned So Far — I'm glad I bought this car. If it still had the room I needed I would have kept it. But I need something larger now. But It's a great car and I highly recommend purchasing one especially to drive to work.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Looks great, handles well, great gas mileage.

Cons: None really

08 Ford Focus Coupe — Great car for driving around town, commuting. Due to the two door model it's not going to be the family car! No major issues but easy to maintain. Stick Shift is fun to drive and handles well. Love Sync! Love the sporty looks but it has it's con's hard to fine all season tires in the size and at a good price, overall great car though.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Sync, Manual 5 sp, love the black and chrome look

Cons: tires are pricy (low profile 205/50/16), speedometer sensor went bad which causes issues.

I Love It! — I am in the market for a new car and the focus was my first choice. I have previoussly owned a 93 Thunderbird and a 97 Taurus and when I test drove the Focus I was in heaven. I loved the steering and the brakes. The get up and go was more than I expected, and I love the look of the car. All of the Focus' I have looked at seem to be great in price. I can't wait to have this Focus in my posession!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Apperance, Handling, Horsepower

Cons: No power seats
