Pros: gas mileage
Cons: nothingi hadn't owned an american car since the middle nineties. i hadn't owned a ford since the early sixties. ford has manufactured a gem in the focus. upkeep and maintenance is inexpensive and minimal. enough power from the 4 banger to cruise the interstate and not get blown off the road by trucks and larger cars. gas mileage in my car has been phenomenal and better than advertised. in town mileage is between 25-27 mpg and if i can leave it on cruise control on the highway, my mileage is an astounding 40-45 mpg. finally an american company making a quality automobile. thank you ford!!
Cons: cramped entryBetter car than I expcted when I bought it. Should have bought more equipment.
Cons: cloth seats
