2007 Ford Focus ZX3 SES 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
3 months, 4500 miles so far. Mileage is 32 highway with cruise control at 75 mph, 26 around town. Far better than my old Ranger, but less than EPA unrealistic estimates. No mechanical troubles or noises. Plenty of room in rear seat for most people. Handles very well around corners, much better than anything else I've owned. Pirelli P6 tires are quiet, but track pavement grooves. Acceleration is good for this size car, low end torque is also good. Go through the gears and be in 5th by 40 mph. Brakes good. I have the safety package with side seat airbags, haven't been able to find seat covers that don't interfere with airbags. Sun visors are wimpy and look too cheap. Overall very pleased.
MPG, cruise control, quiet, power windows, simple accessible engine, handling around corners.
Upgrade sun visors for better coverage, aftermarket items like air bag friendly seat covers and wheel splash guards.
