The Ford Focus: a good, dependable, compact, family car.
I own a 2003 Ford Focus. I bought it used and the biggest issues I have had were motor mounts are weak and I've had to replace all 4 of them. The oxygen sensors are difficult to replace. And the piston rings have worn out way b4 I believe they should have. But overall it has been a great car. Good on gas. Easy ride on the highway or in town. I like my 4 door version because it is easier to get kids in and out. I also love the amount of truck space and that there is easy access to the truck from the back seat. Also that both back seats lay flat to make more room in the truck for long objects. As long as you keep up with regular maintenance on these cars it is an overall good dependable compact family car. I highly recommend them and will probably buy a newer one soon.
