My Focus gets around 30-35 mpg, so with the gas prices the way they are now... goes a little easier than my last car, which was a 1998 Pontiac Sunfire Convertable (24-26 mpg). Despite the Focus' small size, the interior room is big and roomy. I've owned my Focus since early summer of 2005, and it has proven to be very reliable and has seen no shop time aside from the regular maintainance (oil changes, tire replacement, etc.).
My Ford Focus has a sporty, red color and is pleasing to me from every angle. The ride on the highway is smooth and surprisingly quiet, and the handling (partially due to my new tires) is very confident. The little road noise you can hear can easily be masked by the Focus' speed-sensative automatic stereo volume control... The faster you go, the louder the volume gets / the slower you go, the quieter it gets.
The one thing I really don't like about this car is the acceleration... but I understand that this is part of the reason it gets such great fuel economy. More annoying is the placement of the cupholders. If you have a larger drink, it will not fit. Also, there is only one cupholder for backseat passengers.
Overall, a great car and definately worth it to get one!
