- Great handling, extremely quiet, very peppy little engine with low vibration levels
- The estimated fuel rating are a bit on the optimistic side, the ride is a bit harsh over rough road
I guess I've owned my Focus for a couple months now and so far it's proven to be a good little car. I was a bit reluctant to buy one as a workmate of mine owned an earlier model and had nothing but problems with his, in fact a wheel actually fell off his car while going down the road. I'm guessing they've worked all the bugs out of their assembly operation now as it hasn't given us any trouble. There are several things I don't like about the car but I guess you'll eventually find a dislike with any car. The ride is very harsh over rough road and there is a fair amount of audible tire noise when on rough or uneven pavement. What I do like is the peppy little engine, she gets up and goes, not going to break any acceleration records but does well. The engine is quiet for a 4 banger and is nearly vibration free once it's warmed up. Now for my wish list ! I wish I had heated mirrors, I wish I had an electrically adjustable drivers seat, I wish my armrests were padded instead of hard molded plastic to rest my arthritic elbows on, I wish my seat , mirrors and steering wheel would have a memory option so I wouldn't have to continually adjust them individually after my lovely bride uses the family buggy. Over all the Focus is a good value with few flaws and as of now I'd recommend one to most anybody, I guess time will tell if I continue to feel this way.
