Biggest drawback is that there's no spare tire! Also there is wind noise, and now that's it's 10 years old, it's starting to have issues, but it lasted this long with little maintenance and after being in an accident when it was new. Overall, a very good car :)
I’ve had my 2008 focus for 1 year I bought it with 119k miles and I am at close to 130k I absolutely love this car. I haven’t had a single issue yet all I’ve done is change the oil. Now I am going to buy some new tires and do some annual Maintance and that’s it. It drives like a dream and never fails me. Perfect little car.
I brought this car used with 100,000 miles flat. I live in north Jacksonville. I have drove this car to Orlando, Atlanta, West Palm Beach, Miami. I had to get one motor mount fixed and two transmission mounts fixed. But other then that it's great on gas, solid ride, but very loud.A lot of road noise. You can hear everything that's going on outside. And on windy days, that's all you hear.
