Iv'e driven a few of these cars, and had a rental 2006 Focus for a few weeks. They do get great gas milage, not very peppy cars, and they don't enjoy the hills of downtown Seattle (you will barely get out of second gear most of the time) these cars dont carry their power very well, what little power they have. The guy above me (joser93) did not beat any of those cars in a race, if this focus can beat a Audi s4 with over 260 horse stock then i would except it to go back in time also when it hits 88 mph. If you are looking for a reliable family car thats also great for the kids to learn on and use without worry of them getting into trouble then they are great. I'm 6'4 and it sat me 8/10 in comfort, the interment panel is pretty basic and easy to use. As far as performance i would compare this car to a Saturn Ion, and putting performance parts on this car makes about as much sense as putting parts on a Saturn Ion. Again if you are looking for a cheap car that will make it to a camping trip and back then this could be the car for you, but if you are looking for a race car then scratch that idea. My major issue with this car when i had a 06 with 130 horse stock was merging onto the freeway from a stop light, it would take so long to get up to speed and frankly made me nervous a handful of times getting onto I5 and i405.Report it
