You'll want this car if you steer a lot. If you take most of your time on the highways, not so much. You might yell at it to accelerate a bit faster and without such a big grunt just to go from 45-60. But if you steer: It's like very smooth butter being sliced on bread. Steering = city streets and curved roads. It is reliable. 9 years only 1 repair. Sure, its suffered tire damage. But it spent most of its life in NYC! In a backyard full of nails and who knows what! That's to be expected! Sure its got just 50k and we treated it well, sort of. It's been in an accident once struck by a large car going 40mph on the side. What happened? The left door creaks. That's it. Perfect otherwise!
AMAZING handling, roomy for its small size, reliability, safety.
BRING THE EURO FOCUS! The current American one is junk! Rubbish, I tell ya!
