If You Want Fuel Economy And Reliability. This Is The Car. — I have had this car for a year and am very happy. Getting 33-38 mpg on the highway which is why I bought this car. Very solid car. Looking forward to seeing the 2012 Focus, is much sportier looking.

Focus was a nice little car but not big enough for a family. It also didnt go anywhere in the snow.

2008 Ford Focus SE Review
says:
A good New Driver car. Simple, not too fast and generally aesthetically pleasing at a cheap price. I was a big fan of the color changing LEDs in the cupholders and footwells. Mine had a clicking strut and a front passenger brake that loved to stay loose. Very rough ride on stock low profile tires, the seats werent very comfortable. Very good in front end collisions at 60+ mph, it only sent me to the hospital with a very bruised sternum, and the car sent itself to the scrapyard. Would recommend as a learners car

Power Ranked 2007 Subaru Legacy 2.5i Special Edition better.
"The Legacy has more horsepower. That, and combined with the AWD itll outrace and out-tow any Ford Focus. "
Handling Ranked 2007 Subaru Legacy 2.5i Special Edition better.
"The AWD and wider body let me take harder turns at faster speeds. I believe the Legacy makes you feel like youre in direct control; no fighting the steering wheel. Instant response."
