Review

This was my first car and what a deal I got.:( Consistent recalls, having to replace rotors every year which run me $300+, starter blew after only 6months old, cheap rubber lining around outside door frame kept falling off (3xs), makes a lot of noise, hard to sell back for descent price. I wanted to stay and buy American but I'm going foriegn next. All other car dealerships can thank the makers of the Ford Focus for the increase in business.


Favorite Features

Great gas milage, good pick up for only 4 cylinders, and nice compact size.


Suggested Improvements

ROTORS, GET SOMETHING BETTER FORD!!!!!!

Review

I wanted to buy an economical car to do all the short trips to town in & to keep miles off my Grand Marquis. I never have been a big fan of any small car, but I was very impressed with the ride & handling of the Focus. My LX sedan was the hands down winner after I drove the Honda Civic, Dodge Neon & Toyota Corolla. My Focus is doing an excellent job doing what I 'hired' it to do. I recommend the Focus to anyone shopping for an economical car.


Favorite Features

Ride, Handling & fuel economy (30-34 mpg)with manual trans.


Suggested Improvements

Rear visibility. Exterior styling.

Review

This car has a lot of interior space for a compact car, and leg and head room are a feat of engineering genius. I have no complaints about the simple, ergonomic and functional accessories. Fantastic handling and manouverability, a tough little exterior, and great fuel economy. Problem is $500 rotors that can't be turned and need replacing every 10k miles. The brakes never make a sound so you can't tell when the pads are worn. Why build an economy car with BMW rotors? Remember when Ford used MacPherson Struts on the 1980 Ford Fairmont? The logic of this escapes me. Also if you have a chance, look at the FordFocusBrakeProblems.com site.


Favorite Features

Lots of leg, head, and trunk room. Organization of interior seems natural and intellinent. Good sound systems, and the 5 speed has great pick-up for a four-banger.


Suggested Improvements

Rotors! Consistency! Lose some of the cheaper nobs, give it better interior material (that cloth looks like a rug design in a daycare center) and make it a car that a person over the age of 20 would feel good in.

I need a good,reliable car for my son,I went and talked to a friend of mine at a local Ford dealership,I knew her for years,now she won't answer my calls.First repair took them 4xs to find problem,fire hazard recall,3xs because they forgot,still have many problems that they can't seem to find.Now they have conveniently canceled my extended warranty.Do yourself and/or your families a favor, don't rely on this lemon!

Review

Broken speaker, squeaky brakes, smell coming throught the vent, stalling. What more can I say? LEMON. I do not feel safe driving my son around in this car. Everything else is fixed, but the dealer can't seem to find the reason for the stalling. Need to get rid of it and buy something else.
