Lot of perks for you bucks

Great gas mileage. It is a 4 door model and I really like how the back seats can fold down into the trunk. Both or separately. Depending on what space I need. The trunk is large and deep too but sometimes I need a longer space for items. I have never ridden in the back seat but it looks like the seat is kind of short for tall people. Replacement parts are inexpensive. Tires are inexpensive too. It is easy to work on. I like to do the maintenance stuff like changing the oil myself. It gives me a chance to look it over, see if anything is leaking, or appears to be working. It turns on a dime. Very maneuverable. I like the way it looks too. A lot like much more expensive cars. It is one of the best cars I have owned.

Recommendations and Brief Evaluation of 2004 Ford Focus

The Ford Focus is not what I would deem an unreliable vehicle, nor even a bad choice of a vehicle. Perhaps not the most luxurious or comfortable, I would highly recommend this vehicle for a beginner. The interior is quite compact; with the fabric upholstery it can make for quite a stuffy environment. The top complaint on my particular vehicle are the brakes and shock system, though wear and tear is to be expected of a vehicle of this age. So while this vehicle does not drive as smooth as newer models, I would still highly recommend for an individual not seeking a higher end, luxurious car.

Ford focus: awesomeness in a car.

I like the size of the car. I like the miles per gallon that I get. The heater and air conditioner work very well. It has a good strong motor. Does not burn oil. My Ford focus is very roomie. The trunk is very spacious. I can fit several bodies in it. Just kidding. My car has very low miles for how old it is. It is still going strong. The headlights are very bright and they light up a large area when driving at night. I like that I can see blind spots well. All in all I feel that the Ford focus is a great car.
