I previously had owned two Escorts before my Focus. When Ford quit making the Escort I was very upset because I always knew what car I'd be purchasing next - an Escort. However, I decided to give the Focus a chance, since it replaced the Escort, and I've really been happy with its performance and quality. The only maintenance I've had to perform so far is changing the oil and tires. I did have a problem with the truck when I first got it, but it was under warranty and Ford fixed it right away. It's been a great car and I will be purchasing another one really soon!
It has a very deep trunk space that I like very much.
Two drink holders in the back seat area instead of just one.
