Ford figured it out
By jimbelin on
2002 Ford Focus SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
The Ford Focus is one of the best economy compacts out there, period. Fine build quality, comfort for four adults, a joy to drive and great mileage (36.5 highway). It is every bit as good as its Japanese counterparts and thousands less, for a fully equipped car. Mine cost $10,027 for power everything (not seats), ABS, alloy wheels, front & side airbags, DOHC engine and a good sound system. Great commuter car, good first car for a teen driver or choose the wagon for a family in the making. Can't think of any negatives about this car.
Has good acceleration and solid handling. The gas mileage is a real plus. I never feel intimidated by other vehicles on the freeway.
