I love my Ford Focus! The brakes do squeal, which I've heard many times is normal in a Focus. Had them replaced at about 15,000 miles, and haven't been a problem since then. Also, had a problem with the tie-rod, as well as a rough idle. But, once these problems were fixed, the car has been great! I drive my wife's Toyota Camry too, and my car is so much nicer! It's at the just right comfort level, so I don't fall asleep on long road trips. Also, it speeds up nicely. Has a couple dings, but I love my car, and will run it into the ground. Bought it new, and been driving it for 5 years now. I love the fact that I get 5 more mpg on highways than my wife, so we regularly take my car to Washington
34 MPG on freeways. Just the right comfort level so I don't fall asleep. Speeds up quickly. Lots of trunk space. Not too many problems with general running of car
Brakes squealing is a tad bit annoying. Stinks that I don't have air conditioning. Could use some plate armor to reduce tendency to ding up. Also, in place of windshields, could use that material used to hold the whale in Star Trek IV. Then it wouldn't crack
