I bought the Focus for my daughter and drove it 850 miles to deliver it to her. Although I usually drive very large cars, it was very comfortable for a small car. Like all new models there were several recalls, but the car has done very well in the past 2 years. It's had none of the problems that I've read about in the other reviews, except for a brake problem that was fixed under warranty. It's been a very good car.
This is a small car that is easier to get in and out of than any other, even in the back seat. It has room. Taller drivers should love the headroom.
The brake dust is horrible, and the rotors don't last like a normal car. Maybe they could improve them.
