I have had my Focus for about six weeks and already have over 3000 miles. I am very happy with the decision to purchase this car. Fuel mileage is over the Ford rating and at times is bumping the 41+ mpg and is a fun car to drive. Great car by Ford for the money it can not be beat. I looked at the Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla, and Nissan Sentra prior to buying the Focus.
Fuel mileage, gauges, design
Ability in the early models to add cruise and other options which I have been told was not possible without changing the cars computer which I have been told was corrected in the later models. Ford would not update my car so that I could affordability add the speed control.
