Pros: "very comfortable, easy to drive"

Cons: "basic inside"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 6

"This has been my second car ) the first being a 94 ford escort) and I have to say I have loved this car. its a little loud but gas is pretty good, inside is comfortable and it has lasted through a lot of rough use. its a great second car for someone in their early to mid 20's. Not a beater but not a super fancy car. It gets the job done."

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

"I have owned this car for last 8 years, I have done breaks and replaced a battery but that's about it. It had 15k miles on it when I purchased it. It has original engine never touched and original transmission never touched. Still drives like a dream and I get over 30 miles per gallon, best mpg was about 34 when I baby it. Her paint is faded in a few spots that's really only defect car has had but I also leave it outside all the time."

"Except for the alternator and normal consumables (brakes, oil, tires), this Focus ST has been pretty amazing. 181k, all original. I took good care of the car, the car took good care of me. Pep Boys finally got the alternator straightened out, and my life-long relationship with Ford was reinforced with this car. Can't wait till i'm back in my next ST."

Pros: "Great design and gas mileage, hauls anything"

Cons: "They don't sell in US anymore"

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

"I absolutely loved this car and drove it for over 200000 miles with no major problems. Ford, Ford, please come to your senses and begin selling in the US again. Body style much more dignified than the Volkswagon. Beats Volkswagon with fuel economy too. Was totally ahead of its time. I've held out 13 years, but I'm afraid I'm finally going to have to give it up."

"My only complaint about this car, is the 'paint' - I got it second hand in'08, and noticed paint peeling/bubbling on the grill. After 2 more years, I saw rust forming on the lower doors and below the quarter panels on the trim."

"Got this car in 2011, and have loved it since. Sleek in appearance, and solidly built, I know I can trust it for many years to come. Comfortable interior, and great space in the front and back. Easy to maintain, too. I do all my own maintenance, and it hardly takes any time at all. Great handling, the steering is very responsive. Will definitely be sticking with Ford Focuses in the future!"
