The biggest downer is its interior. A little bland. The build quality, inside and out, is good. The car drives great. The steering is tight and precise, and the engine has far more power than my old Civic. The ride is a little rough and the car a bit noisy when it's really windy, but overall for a car its price, I'm extremely satisfied. I test drove the Corolla, Civic, Jetta and Sentra before choosing the Focus.
