2014 Ford FocusSean Mitchell - Colorado Springs, CO10/17/2016
So most people can't tell this car from a PT Cruiser. But most people can't tell a new Corvette from a Ferrari. Most people are pretty dim when it comes to cars, as evident in many of the reviews you'll read on here.
I'm coming off of a 2006 Audi S4 who's engine was a ticking time bomb. Great fun, very fast car, but ten year old German performance cars are not known for their reliability.
But I digress. It's saying something for the Focus ST that I am having just as much fun, if not more, than I was in the S4. This thing is like a go kart on a canyon road, while being practical for a family man. This car is universally loved by the automotive press.
High Power, Low Insurance!
2012 Ford FocusC C - Naples, FL05/28/2016
The smooth and instant acceleration for jumping on the freeway, out performs my old Camero, but about equal with my old Eclipse. I've always switched car brands at $30,000 but after test driving a lot of other current new brands/models, I'm still shopping because this car doesn't feel like a small engine while equal engines of other makes, make it so obvious. The gas milage is great too!
Cosmetically, I also love the white top stitching on seats..... All the chrome the Titanium has, grabs the attention of everyone that gets into my car. The screen is big but doesn't stick out like a sore thumb like my friends luxury cars either.
the only reason I don't 5 stars is the city driving acceleration has an occasional flaw...
2010 Ford FocusDanielle - El Paso, TX04/09/2015
Unfortunately I only had this vehicle for a short time. I bought it in January and then in April I was in an accident. I was at a dead stop at a red light and I was rear ended. The guy who rear ended me was in a Tahoe SUV and he was going about 40mph. My car ended up being totaled. Considering the horrible amount of damage and the fact that I only came out with whiplash and a sore back I was very very lucky. The Focus saved me. So I went out and bought another one. I've never had any problems with either car and I drive roughly 5,000 miles in three months. I'd recommend this car to everyone.
