Pros: "economical, serve a young person a good value."

Cons: "not many bells and wistles."

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

"I bought this car as a back up when my primary vehicles engine died on me. I was able to drive this car from Wisconsin to N.H and back plus many trips to MN where I live now. For a 2003 it got me my moneys worth. It averaged over 34 MPG's. I hate to sell it but just don't need 3 vehicles. Granted this vehicle is the bare bones minimum for comfort, It definately served it's purpose."

Pros: "Fun, Cheap, reliable"

Cons: "No Luxury, no feature creature baubles"

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

"If you are a JD Power feature creature who only looks at a vehicle as the equivalent of a living room sofa on wheels, you will hate this car. However, if you value a car as a car, you will LOVE the Focus as much as most auto critics do. It is simple yet delivers fun, crisp driving ideal for driving in town and with the MPG to obliterate commutes. You will not find endless baubles and sofa leather iPhone screens here whatsoever. This car is about a simple chassis, an engine, good suspension and MPG."

"Bought an 04 focus ZTS for my son who is learning to drive. Safety and reliability were tops on my list. I figured he could burn out the clutch on this instead of learning on my Audi (the clutch costs more than we paid for the focus) Im pretty happy with our choice. Understated, but a car he can be happy to be seen in, easy to drive, good on gas. Electronics issues are plaguing us, but I figure he can drive it into the ground and not waste a fortune."

Pros: "Easy to drive. Handles well. good acceleration"

Cons: "Use a rust retardent on underbody"

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

"Car was parked in a damp location for much of it's life, so it has rusted underneath. I would have put a rust retardant like fluid film on it, had I owned the car at that time. Also the heat shield is aluminum fastened to a steel body. Add some moisture and salt with two dissimilar metals and you have galvanic corrosion. Simple dielectric plastic spacers would have prevented this. Other than that the Focus is a good car for the money."
