2009 Ford Focus Se Coupe — I really like the performance; it has a manual transmission (thank God). Don't like the metallic paint job but all colors only come in metallic for this vehicle. Wish it had an oil pressure gauge and rear wheel disc brakes. It's a nice looking car otherwise.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Performance

Cons: Metallic paint

Focus St A Car You Just Can't Get Over The Pond. — Best Car I've ever owned. Best fun car makes me smile everyday! Great pick up, lovely engine note. Handles like Goege Best (before his drinking). Fantastic styling. Just a great car all round that does everthing you ask of it.

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

Pros: Handling & Acceleration

Cons: Likes to drink the gas

The Black Focus — I got it as a rental for a week and it was a really nice car to drive. The car got really good mileage and the inside was spacious too. I liked having the Sirus satelite radio and I didn't listen to regular radio all week. The two downsides were that 1.) The engine was not too responsive, I actually pushed the gas all the way down once just to get on the freeway and 2.) There was no cruise control and in Houston, you need cruise control with alll the highway driving people around here do everyday. Overall I liked the car and I actually miss driving it haha.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Economical, Sirus Satelite Radio, fun to drive, the driver is not too low to the ground, great MPG

Cons: NO CRUISE CONTROL, and the engine was weak

Focus — it was ok for a small car, sporty yet gutless. I would rather go for a car with a more performance tuned engine or a bigger engine, right now i'm happy with my V8 5.2 litre 4x4. I would like a sporty car in the future though

Pros: Sporty

Cons: Gutless

My Daily Driver — I wish I had a few more dollars so I could have gotten the SES, but other than that, I like the little thing...30MPG for the year so far, no complaints. Get's over 35 on long trips. I think I'll keep this one for a while!

Pros: Small, good MPG, Sirius, SYNC

Cons: Automatic since my wife can't drive stick!

Ford Focus Titanium Francorchamps 1.8 Tdci 115hp 2009 — Fun car too drive with a nice acceleration. Enough room for driver & passengers at the back as in the trunk. And with the aerodynamics kit of the econetic on the front & the special back skirt in grey (car is black) it makes the car even more beautiful. Affortable car with enough power for normal to sporty use

Pros: looks

Cons: haven't found one yet

Owner — Good acceleration, awsome gas milage (24-43mpg) numb suspension. Had a nock from the 1/2 shaft, was recalled (15,500mi), The flat bumpers collect dirt easly, and the roof line could be dropped about 3" to give a sportier look and less like a bubble. Fun little car grate for delivering pizza's or going to work.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Looks good, Great gas milage,  

Cons: Needs suspension update,  and a sportier look for the coupe.
