2012 Ford FocusEric - Stone Mountain, GA03/09/2015
This is a compact car that is great for commuters like me, and also quite sporty. It doesn't get the fuel economy of a Toyota Prius, the power of a SkyActiv Mazda3, or the front storage and passenger accommodation of a Chevrolet Cruze, but it does adequately well in all those areas and also provides a very responsive and feature-rich driving experience. The exterior styling is exciting, and the interior styling is decent with some nice materials. It has some undesirable characteristics in its transmission, cabin noise, and entertainment systems, but none of these things is too particularly bad, and my overall sentiment of the vehicle is very positive. I am wholly satisfied with my purchase, and I have no regrets about it.
Amazing car all around!
2013 Ford FocusMitchell Bazzano - Knoxville, TN09/12/2015
For the money you spend you get lots and lots of car. How does 252hp, a turbo charged six speed manual, and a fully loaded car all for under $30k sound? I love my ST! I have put good money into the car and plan on more. It is incredible from the recaro seats to the exhaust notes.
Economic but Troublesome
2014 Ford FocusGeorge Korakas - Las Vegas, NV05/02/2016
The car gets roughly 28mpg in the city and 40-50mpg highway doing better the longer you travel. The engine is made for Manual transmission so BEWARE, all small economic 2 liter engine cars have problems with transmission and are not strong engines. This car DOES NOT have a lot of power or torque. If you want an economical car to go to work to and back, this is a great choice.
