3rd one. Have rented a variety of vehicles for our trips. Drove my 1st Focus and said “I want this this car”. Brought one in 1998, then in 2000 (had over 200,000 miles w/no problems) and then traded it in for my third one. Travel about 120 miles a day and just thought it was time, each was an exceptional car. For a compact car it’s versatility is good, plently of room, especially head room. I recomend this car for fuel efficency, good city MPG/very good hwy MPG, has good accelertion. Nice riding car and very comfortable on trips. It’s underpriced considering its quality and reliablity. It’s everything I needed and more. When I’m ready to trade-in for a new vehicle, it will be another Focus!
Spacious, plenty of headroom, comfortable, CD & radio, removable cupholders, heat and a/c are both superb, steering, tilt & cruise control, good mpg both city & highway
Only complaint - the battery cables had to be replaced on my 2000 due to some corrosion, just need to make sure they're cleaned up on a regular basis
