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."

Great car for the money.

"After about 14 years of driving this Focus, for the type of driving it is designed for it has proven to be a great car for the value. It is comfortable, drives well and gets good gas mileage. With routine maintainance and upkeep it has been reliable and trouble free, requiring seldom mechanical engine repair. The paint finish, body and glass have held up well. It has held up well. Great car for the money."

In driveway when new, looks the same today.

"For 100,000 this has been a very reliable vehicle. The 4 cylinder is adequate, however is sluggish when running AC. Have had no major repairs other than getting the suspension system stabilized early on. Tires were wearing out too quickly and I had rear stabilization installed by dealer. Mileage continues to be very good, (25 mpg in town and over 30 highway). Hot weather is about 3 MPG less when operating AC continually. The body and interior have held up very well. Car is always garaged at night so that helps with exterior."

"I love my car but when I first got it I did not know how to drive it as never had driven manual, but after I learned how to drive it I love it, also when I bought it the car dealership did not inform me there was a leak in power steering and so for the first 3 months it was slowly leaking until the pump broke and by then warranty was up and they refused to fix it. But otherwise I love it a lot like my Ford Escort I had."
