Fun car! by evie_mun on 08/06/2005. Trim: 2001 Ford Focus SE, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Handles like a dream. It's nice that in Texas I can out-accelerate and out-handle most of the huge pickup trucks and SUVs. It's a cleanly built, easy to understand car which is honestly fun to drive. Great sound system, wonderful gas mileage. And it just plain looks good. A+ on passenger comfort, huge spacious trunk, comfortable on long drives.
Cons: None that I've found so far. There are some minor electrical problems like the open door light coming on when you don't shut the trunk just right, fuses being strange on the turn signals. It gets great economy on the highway, but not so good around town because of the fact that the accelerator is so jumpy.
Overall review: I would suggest this car to any parent as their teenager's first car, or to anyone on a budget. It's fun, sporty, and good looking. It gets econo car gas mileage, but isn't an econo car, which is the best thing about it. It seats 4 passengers and a driver perfectly comfortably, and it's just a well thought-out, well-built car.
