"Bought this car in '05 with 24000 miles for $8000. Have owned several other similar Ford Focuses also very good. It is a hatchback so I sold my truck. Car has been very reliable and easy to drive, easy to park, and gets 33 to 34 miles per gallon. If you buy one, do as I have done and stick with the Zetec Dual Overhead Cam (DOHC) and avoid the SOHC Split Port Motor as they had some major engine issues. Great little car and lots of fun to drive too. Highly Recommended !"

"Quick nimble car that reliably gets you from point A to point B. It is a joy to throw around the curvy roads and makes a 30 minute commute bearable. I believe the car handles better than 85% of other vehicles on the road. I usually give up long before the handling does. Easy to park and maneuver and the hatch is the best thing ever."

"Focus, which I bought new, has been a great car! Almost 200M and still doesn't use oil. I have been very religous about oil and filter changes. Have had a few minor issues...fuel pump; motor mounts; electric windows on 2 rear doors gave me problems. A/C still will freeze you out. Usually get 40-50M out of front disc brakes. Never any transmission issues (but I serviced it on time!). No car is ever trouble-free, including this one...but it's over 13 years old and still going strong! (you're right, I'm a Ford person!)"

Pros: "Very reliable, great gas mileage, moon roof"

Cons: "low profile tires terrible in winter"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"I have owned this car for 7 years. I bought it when it had 10,000 miles on it and it now has 200,000 miles on it. It runs like a top. It has never failed me. Has always started even at 25 below zero. I love the moon roof. The only thing I've had go on it is the alternator and it warned me about 5 miles ahead of time on my radio display. So I was able to get to a garage before it stalled. My only complaint about this particular car is the tires. It has low profile tires on it, which look cool, but do not last as long as I would like and the rims have become bent up after this many miles, which causes my car to shimmy a bit. New tires help for a while, but as soon as they get some wear on them, it shimmys again. Apparently regular tires cannot be put on the rims I have and I don't want to spend the money for new rims at this point. So I will live with it a couple more years. Otherwise, this car gets close to 40 mpg. The older it gets the better gas mileage I seem to get. I commute every day over 100 miles. It runs great."
