Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
We traded this truck in for a later model. We should have kept it! What a solid vehicle. Although the look was a bit long-in-the-tooth at the time, I like it's rugged, truck-like appearance. It is a solid truck/SUV with a lot of body panel strength and solid doors. The third row seat is very heavy and should be taken out by two people only. All features worked as designed and no frequent failures occurred.
Not at all impressed with the fit and finish of this car. Multiple failed window regulators, and leaking factory sunroof. Maybe it was an issue since this was a first year model.
I bought mine as a new vehicle and still love it after 160K miles. I couldn't survive without the keypad entry. They hooked me with that feature!
Pros: Quality and performance - saved my huband's life!!!
Cons: Having to say goodbye to our focusNever 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!!!
safe, comfortable, reliable
Pros: ride height
Cons: trunk accessPerfect sedan in terms of cost and value. Plenty of interior room and consistent 27-28 mpg highway.
I love the space in this vehicle.
worked for me
Pros: lots of cargo space for such a small car
Cons: seat belts not easily accesibleWhen i bought this car i just needed something to get back and forth to work in. Turns out this has been the most hassle free car i've ever had. I plan on keeping this thing until the wheels fall off. I've got my money's worth...and more.
