Life With My '09 Focus 2.0 Duratec — Good looking car with a sporty line and nice handling, sometimes i feel it has a little bit lazy acceleration because its weight (1327 Kg), but stills a well built and reliable car. Very comfortable seats and has space for family and cargo...

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Still looking great after 4 years of being owned.

Cons: Only two airbags and a has no USB port on the stereo system, noisy engine...

2009 Ford Focus Hatch — Not a bad car. A bit plain jane but it is 2 litre, not the 1.6 so it goes ok. Understeers too much which can be dangerous in the wet. Has been reliable so far. The tipronic is good but only a 4 speed.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Solid but not awe inspiring.

Cons: Understeer.

2009 Ford Focus Se — I have been driving my focus for 2 years now. It's a good reliable car to get around town in. It handled nicely and and felt link i was fully in control. The steering was a bit to firm for me though.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: fast and peppy

Cons: Little to low to the ground.

Hot Ride — Appearance: appearance is classy both exterior and interior Performance: Acceleration is good even on the steep heel while driving on gear 5, breaking is not really reliable when you hit a dead break, handling is brilliant especially on water driveway

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It can disappear and fuel is efficient

Cons: not smooth on the bumpy roads

Great Little Car — I like it . I would get buy again , Being a big guy , I fit well in it . I have had it fully load with 4 people and the trunk full . The little car still had tons of power! Would love to see 4 wheel disc brakes!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: With the miles I drive , its a good little car .

Cons: 4 wheel disc brakes would have been nice!

Love My Focus! — I'd recommend this car for anyone who wants something small and relatively inexpensive. It fits my purposes -- and I'm happy with it.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Love my car!  Sporty-looking, surprisingly big interior with lots of front seat leg room for my 6'6" husband and son.  Huge trunk with fold-down back seat makes it easy to fit longer purchases.  Terrific gas milage -- in the low-mid 30's for city driving.  Powerful AC/heater.  Good radio/stereo.  Perfect size to buzz around in...

Cons: Not the greatest car in the winter. Think I'm going to invest in snow tires, as my all-weather radials aren't cutting it. Doesn't have the best power on steep hills at higher speeds.  Back seat is a little cramped for my tall kids.

Overall...this Car, In My Opinion, Is Better Than The Mazda 3 Or The Civic. — Performance is above average. I wish it had a bit more power. Maybe after I install better exhaust, intake, and tweak the CPU a bit I'll definitely see a difference in the power. Also once I lower and stiffen the suspension the overall look of the car will be more aggressive...much like how I drive. Once the performance chip is modified, the gas mileage should get even better. This is really a fun car to drive along with your friends.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: The Sync System on this car is what places it above anything else in it's class.

Cons: I wish it had a bit more power and torque and a little lowered suspension, but for what it came with for the price I paid, it was a steal.
