"This ford focus is a reliable car, yo can fill up the gas tank with 25-30 dollars. it is a 5 speed manual car and runs great. it has minor dents on the left side of the passengers seat. The front lip could use a paint touch up, but nothing serious. Clean in the inside, 2 small burn marks due to cigarets. A good stereo system, and comes in with A U haul bicycles mount. This car has never giving me a problem on the road, It could use very minor work nothing serious. your getting your moneys worth guaranteed!"

"What can I say? Went to a car dealer to buy a used PT Cruiser, and drove the Focus home as we got a better deal with lower payments on a new vehicle. 1. problems with the alarm system...finally just disconnected it. 2. Substandard ignition...got stuck 50 miles away from home with a car that wouldn't start. Cost over $500 for a new one. Went on the Internet and saw many, many people with the same problem. Should have been a no charge recall issue. 3. Can't begin to list the various repairs...new head gaskets...rebuilt tranny...valve job...etc."

"Great gas mileage both intown and highway. Great cargo space. Good driving - starts in cold weather (below 0 degrees), good pickup and comfortable long-range riding. Why did Ford stop making this model?"

"Loved this car, and I'd be buying my third one if they still made the wagon. Perfect size for one or two people. Ford, you broke my heart."

"i bought new in 2004, the car is a blast to drive, had a few MINOR warranty repairs when new(to be expected), but after 20,000m. have only had to do regular maint. i replaced the brakes at 50,000 but still had a lot of life left to them. the car is nimble at any speed, brakes some of the best for a small car, powers up to triple digits, and loves to cruise there, Power,reliability, and all while getting 34mpg. I don't see myself ever getting rid of this ride."
