I have had this car for a while now, and I just love it. Most people seem to frown on Ford cars but I did my research before buying - and I'm glad I didn't listen to them. Only recently did I have a problem with the factory installed Blankrupt radio. Though a radio is nice, it's a minor problem to get fixed. If you are looking for a nice, dependable, well engineered vehicle - I recommend the Focus.
Comfort, ease of controls, not too big, not too small
From what I hear, the radio is a rare problem but not unheard of, so I think they should consider using another brand.
