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!

Will Get A Rwd Car With 300hp Next :p — I only own the 1.6l so it only got 100hp, which is a bit to less 170-200hp would be perfect ;) Cost of the car is quite good, it only consumes 7,5l/100km with padel to the metal ;) steering and braking is top notch for a car in this price range

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: fun factor while driving and good value

Cons: Front-wheel-drive

Yes — I love my car to death. It's fun to drive, the Sync feature by Microsoft is awesome, it has a little bit of a sporty look to it.... I know it doesn't have the best performance but if your not looking for performance, look here.

Pros: Gas Mileage, Sync Voice Command, Quality

Cons: Loud on the highway, Not the fastest on the highway

Acceptable Low-end Car With Few Thrills. — I had an OK time driving the Ford Focus. The build quality itself was not bad, though the cheap plastic interior panels really made the car feel flimsy. Other than that, the car seemed like a solid vehicle to ride. Not enough bells and whistles for my taste, but overall on OK car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Seemed like a solid engine.

Cons: Cheap interior makes the rest of the car seem flimsy.

I Love It, I Only Wish It Had A Little More Power, But Don't We All? — Accelerates from 0-50 in first gear (That's always fun). Good brakes, decent handling. There is some creeking now and then, it's not exactly hand made, however I have not had a single problem yet, after 25,000 miles. It's a good looking a good looking car, and the interior is nice. Only bad thing about the interior is there is no light in the back so I had to put up a tap light ($10 fix, worth it :)). Great mileage, 24 mpg city, between 34-36 mpg highway, depending to road grade. It has a smaller gas tank however, so trips to the gas station are as often as with a lesser mileage car, So far no maintenance, I will have to replace the tires at the 30,000 mile tune up, which is sooner than expected. Fun car to drive! Handles windy backroads well. If youra driver in snow you can manage, however this car is so light that someone without snow experience shouldn't attempt to drive in snowy/icy conditions.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: The car does what you tell it to, in a timely and safe manner.

Cons: If you want to do anything more than drive on-road.

By Far The Best Car I've Owned Out Of The 9! — I have owned 9 vehicles.A Hyundai, Mercury, Chevy and several other Ford models. Out of all of those even the same model but a different year... I love my '08 focus the best. The handling is great and sporty. It accelerates beautifully.The gas mileage is awesome. I like this body style much better than the '04 and '07 focus I had before. I love the Sync feature. I don't even use the 6 disc changer or the radio. I only listen to my iPod. I would recommend the Focus to everyone out there.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Everything

Cons: Nothing
