    2008 Ford Focus

    compact with class

    Pros: gas mileage

    Cons: nothing

    i 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!!

    2003 Ford Focus

    Ford Focus wagon - little car that could

    Pros: tons of space

    Cons: looks too much like a mini van

    Had the car for almost 7 years. Still using the OEM battery. I've changed the oil/filters and tires - nothing else. No problems. 38 MPG on the highway (if I stay under 75) 30 mpg in town. I can haul my bikes, kayak, 4 people and a lot of camping gear with no problem. Need a dresser moved - no problem. Tons of space, great gas mileage and reliable - what else is there?

    2004 Ford Focus

    2.3 ZX3 Great little car.

    Pros: The 2.3 Liter Duratec/5-Speed combo

    Cons: The appearance from the rear.

    Peppy. The 2.3 easily out-accelerates average traffic and still gets 30+ mpg. Reasonably comfortable but a bit noisy. Handles well for a front-drive. Cheap to operate and insure. I drove a 2.0L SVT and it was a dog compared to the 2.3 Duratec. Trouble is, the 2.3 was only available in 2003-2004 in the 3-door model.
