Ford Focus Excellence
Pros: Small enough to fit just about anywhere
Cons: It is a stick shiftMy 2003 Ford Focus ZX 5 Hatchback has been with us since zero miles. Given that we are up to date with its maintenance, it has never given us any mechanical problems. With its 1.8L motor and 5-shift gears, it allows us to climb the Imperial-San Diego with ease and power. With its 5 seating cabin, it allows my whole 5-member family to ride comfortably. The cargo area allows 2-medium and 2-small pieces of luggage, enough for a week-long vacation. Its 4 cylinder engine makes it a powerful runner and at the same time it is a very fuel-efficient machine.
Best vehicle ever
Cons: colorMy wife just loves this car. We are retired and up there and we need a car this is comfortable and this car is the best. Other people have gotten this car because of us.After they drove ours they got one too.
2010 Fusion Hybrid
Pros: high mpg
Cons: lack of power (I'm used to V-8)One of my only complaints is the cloth interior on the Hybrid. It is supposed to be recycled Denim material, but it seems very delicate, not like denim. I have to small tears or cuts after only a few thousand miles. I have a (7) year old truck, that the interior still looks like new, so I'm not hard on an interior.
Outstanding Vehicle w/Exceptional Quality
Cons: NothingDrove 3400 miles on trip w/average of 39.65 mpg which included full day of mountain driving.
