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.
