I own a Lincoln MKX and was looking for a second commuting vehicle that was cheap in price and on gas. I am happy with my purchase of the Focus because it's built well and handles alot better than other cars that I test drove (Nissan Sentra, Toyota Carola). The interior is not the best quality however, it looks nice all lit up at night (If you take care of your car the interior should hold up just fine). The SYNC system is easy to use and very practical. The trunk is big on this little car.
Great gas mileage, big trunk, Sirius radio and SYNC.
Ford vehicles seem to have interiors that look cheap however, I think Ford spent the money well on the safety and comfort systems in this vehicle.
