Tbd — It handles great, drives effiicently and looks sharp but I miss turbo torque from Saabs that I have owned. The Focus does have amazing ride and handling with the sport suspension package and 18" wheels with summer tires and I've averaged 31+ mpg in mixed driving. The DSG transmission rev matches seamlessly but 3rd gear is a somewhat sluggish. It's a little tight inside for cargo space but I like it overall. It just feels very solid (yet light) for a compact car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: TBD

Cons: TBD

Ford Focus Titanium — Overall really happy with this car despite the dual clutch being a bit all over the place and some rattles here and there...performance is good for a small car...excellent tech though.. sat nav, cornering lights, adaptive cruise, auto parking etc.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Technology

Cons: Rattles and rear leg room

A Departure. — It's different from what I normally get by about thirty miles, but so far I'm impressed. Ford's interiors have impressed me in the past three years or so and the third-generation Focus is no different. The MyFordTouch system, revised in this model, still has its bugs, but for the most part, and between putting almost five thousand miles on it in a month, I have not experienced any horror stories. The best part is spending but forty dollars to fill it all the way up from empty when gas is $3.89 a gallon.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Style, technology, fuel economy/range, surprising cargo capacity, interior quality, ride.

Cons: MyFordTouch still has a few kinks, doesn't have vehicle information other than fuel economy in the driver information screen.

If They Drop The Price On It I'll Recomend — Engine sounds loud for a focus, and price is too high, looks good from outside, SYNC doesn't interpret commands well.. Seats are pretty comfortable, responds to turns very well, gears for automatic transmission change rapidly. Everything else is good, but takes time to get used to menu on the screen and all the controls.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: lane change is smooth and fast

Cons: too much buttons

Pros: Ford Sync...I can talk to my car!

Cons: Small

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great looking car

Cons: A little small
