    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!

    Pros: Apperance, Handling, Horsepower

    Cons: No power seats

    Get It You'll Like It. — Overall an awesome car. 2.0L twin cam powered engine. 5sp man transmission. light weight and the looks to boot. It has a ton of multi media support inc. blue tooth for your phone. Agile car and quite fun to drive. gets well over 40 mpg if your cruising down the highway "the right way" ;-) and putting around town takes a week and half to drain the tank.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Fun quick and agile.

    Cons: Small. compact.

    Definitely The Best Car Out On The Market Right Now! — This car is fun to drive, and with 33 mpg, you can drive a lot! Easy handling, very good, dependable car. If I could go back and choose a car again, it'd definitely be the Ford Focus! Spacious, easy to maintain, definitely worth the money!

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

    Pros: Fuel Efficient, Style, Color, Sync, Sunroof

    Cons: Having a car payment is never fun!
