4.0 out of 5 (24 reviews)

Its not bad

I didnt know this was a compact car. Its great on gas really depending how you drive. My gas last me a week and a half. Its kind of slow in accelerating. And the back is not very spacious at all for people. A person that an average height for 5ft 6 is enough to almost get their head hit. Not really enough leg room for the back if someone in the front passenger seat is sitting in front of them.

Love this car with a passion! but…

i love this car SO much. but after only having 64000 miles the motor blew up on me. but after being replaced i would still 10:10 recommend


  • Fuel Economy: it gets the BEST gas mileage and with these prices it’s so convenient


  • Cost to Maintain: the cost of a new engine was very pricey

- Madison Raulerson, 2017 Ford Focus

Very fun hatchback and well worth the price!

I have the ST trim which brings the Focus to life. You get more power yet still amazing handling for front wheel drive. The car has lots of room for daily use and is pretty good for long road trips. The only thing I don't like is how small the gas tank is at 12 gallons. It gets about 26 mpg but with that small of a tank I have to stop for gas about once a week. It's not a huge problem at all however.


  • Power: I like the performance.
  • Styling: The car is beautiful.
  • Cargo Space: It is a good amount for daily use.
