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.
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
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.
