    2006 Ford Focus

    Pros: Quality and performance - saved my huband's life!!!

    Cons: Having to say goodbye to our focus

    Never thought it would happen to us, but last week my husband was in a serious accident in our 2006 Ford Focus. The car didn't make it, but my hubby is going to be fine (many bumps and bruises!) ! When we went to look at the car in the tow yard, it was hard to see. But the best part was inside the vehicle and seeing the small spot where Jeff had to crunch into to avoid more severe injuries. Without the airbag and seatbelt (nasty bruisis), he would not have survived that crash. Thank you! Thank you! Thank You!!!

    2006 Ford Focus - SE (710A) 4dr Hatchback

    Pros: the I tec engine is very good...16' wheels

    Cons: how costly the repair have been, poor warranty

    Advice: rear left axle broke, could have taken my life, a/c fan had to replace, radio volum broke, the automatic transmission. the o/d stopped working.. haven't had the money to fix it yet, rear wheel bearing went.

    The Focus has a tendency to sway at higher speeds mostly on concrete roads...good visibility, comfort, don't buy one I did and have had more out of packet expense than any other new car I have purchased.

    2006 Ford Focus - SE (410A) Sedan

    Pros: MP3 player, gas mileage, driving dynamics

    Cons: Noisy at highway speeds on rough roads or windy days

    Advice: Drive the vehicle. It might not be for you, but I found it very good for its class.

    I absolutely love my Focus. I'm a high mileage commuter and now have about 20k on the car in under a year. Not a single problem or unexpected wear. The handling is spectacular. Road noise is a little loud, but not obnoxious. I bought this car over a Civic, Corolla and Cobalt. The Focus was better than the Corolla and Cobalt and while trailing the new Civic in overall package, the Civic was not so good that I would have paid nearly $5k more for it.

    2006 Ford Focus - SE (710A) 4dr Hatchback

    Pros: Handling, MPG and price.

    Cons: Gasoline problem

    Advice: Give the Focus serious consideration for a nice economical car.

    I've driven my new Focus over 750 miles and it's alot of fun to drive. However, it's now in the shop being repaired for a defective gas filler neck. On my first fill up, the gas immediately backed up and shot out of the tank soaking me with gasoline! Apparently, the filler neck was smashed somehow during factory installation. Hopefully, it will be properly repaired. Otherwise, it's a really enjoyable car to drive.
