My Focus is a daily commuter over highway and suburban roads so I'm in it a lot. The car has good extras, good pep, handles fine, has been reliable so far, and was reasonable to get into. I'd even go so far to say that it's fun to drive. Make sure you include it on your shopping list.
None stand out. Overall, it's just a good vehicle for a more-than-fair price.
Not crazy about the seat fabric - feels kinda like your grandma's couch. A few interior rattles (I'm very picky!)
