Have owned my Focus since October of
2001. I get 27mpg in the city and
31mpg on the highway. Have experienced
no problems in 22,000 miles. It is fun
to drive and handles well in Michigan
winters. The trunk is huge for a small
car. Have had several passengers
express their suprise for how nicely
the car rides. The controls are placed
well. Ford appears to finally have
the 'world car' they have been trying
for since the Escort was introduced.
Hopefully, the problems they had when
the car was first introduced have been
resolved. My Focus has had no recalls.
Gas mileage, performance, ride.
Squeaky brakes in high humidity weather
and the driver side mirror trim is not
flush with the body.
