Pros: Get up and go on the freeway
Advice: ResearchI have had my Focus since May 15, 2001, and this is the best car I have owned in my life. I know that when I drive in the fog, on the highway or in the mountains, my family and I will be safe. I don't know what this guy Ashanti is talking about. Maybe he uses his car just to race or whatever, but that's what happens when you put alot of hope in a vehicle and don't test drive other vehicles. Secondly, he obviously didn't do any research. I researched everything on the Focus for three months and did a test drive on the LX and ZX3 (approximatey 1 one apart from each test drive). Next time, YOU, ASHANTI, need to take some extra time in choosing a vehicle.

Advice: www.focaljet.com is a great online community to research this car.First Off the ZX3 is a different model than the LX Ashanti. ;) I have had my ZX3 since January of 2000. This car is just straight up fun to drive! In my opinion the Focus models are great values and offer an individual who enjoys driving a package which is hard to beat.
Pros: Head and hip room and fun to drive
Cons: Front seats don't flip forward on a spring for rear seat access
Advice: Make shure that you get the Zetec engineBought this car in Aug. 2000 and haven't had any complaints.Lots of head and cargo room.The car handles great but the tires that come stock are terrible in rain and snow.My Gas mileage is 27.5 MPG on average but can drop dramatically with hard driving.This car is a joy to drive.You can toss it around in traffic and it doesn't float around like most domestic cars.Car has had several recalls,but most were minor and all were fixed without any pain.

Pros: On Star
Cons: Payments but 0% is pretty good
Advice: Try it - you will like it.I have been looking for the right new car for several years. I finally saw the new Chevy Impala LS and fell in love with it. After driving it, I had to have it. I feel like I am driving a true luxury car. I love the heated leather seats, the programable driver center that show the direction I am traveling and the outside temperature. It also has 3 buttons that you can program for garage door openers. No more looking for the remote.
