I love my Ford Focus. I really enjoy the way it drives--that was what convinced me to buy it in the first place. However, I wouldn't recommend it. Not this model at least. Later years seem to be a bit more reliable. My car was three years old when I bought it, and I have now owned it for three years. I have put thousands of dollars of repairs into it. It has needed brake work on two separate occasions, as well as a new starter. This is not an old car! As soon as I can afford it I will be looking for a new car.
CD player comes standard. I love the way it drives.
