"This is my second Focus. I love how this car drives and how much space it has. The trunk on the Focus is surprisingly big. I fit four golf bags with clubs and a cooler all in side the trunk at the same time!"
"The Focus is exactly what it's supposed to be - it just works. It carries a lot of people & stuff (big trunk!), and does so without a fuss. I've put 53K mostly highway miles on it without problems. It's not particularly thrilling to drive, with only 110 horsepower but it's not intended to be. Steering feel and suspension are pretty well-sorted, so it handles OK (the OE tires are well-matched to the car).
The CD/MP3 player was a nice touch, as are the telescoping steering wheel and alloy wheels, on a $16K car. Seats are pretty comfortable too. MPG was easily over 30 if you're nice to it and use the cruise.
Overall, for basic transportation of a small family, it does the job perfectly well."
