I've been a driver of a Ford Ranger for the last 18 years (2 different trucks). My driving needs changed in the last 6 months and I needed a car. I looked at many different vehicles, Mini Cooper, VW, BMW, GM, and Dodge. For the price, features, and performance to my needs the Focus was the best choice for me. I was very pleased upon getting in and out of the vehicle that it was at a comfortable level. Coming from a truck I didn't want the vehicle to be to low to the ground. The gas mileage has been great. I drive about 90 miles round trip to work now and it's a combination of highway and city driving. I've been getting over 34 mpg. The ability to use my iPod with the sync system is great.
