Most comfortable car I have owned! My Ford focus gives me peace of mind.

2006 Ford Focus SE

I bought my 2006 Ford focus new and it has been my primary vehicle for the past 13 years. It has been a wonderful car to drive as it is comfortable, the perfect size (roomy, but doesn't feel like you're driving a bigger car) and I have had very few mechanical issues with it, despite it now having over 205,000 miles. The cloth seats are comfortable and support my back. The back seat is in wonderful condition, despite my daughter's car seats and 'less than kind' care of it as she travels with me. Any mechanical issues have been simple and easily taken care of. I like having a Ford focus because the cost of parts isn't too expensive and my husband can do any necessary repairs himself. It has seen me through three accidents and many road trips. The car is reliable. I haven't had to worry about it breaking down or overheating. This was the first car I've had that hasn't caused me stress. It gives me peace of mind. Since it is an older model it has a CD player, which is fun because I still am able to listen to my CDs from years gone by. Also I am able to put an adapter in there to listen to music on my phone. It has working AC and heat, electric windows, and a sunroof. I would recommend a Ford focus to anyone that is looking for a cost-effective, comfortable car to last for many years to come. I am so thankful I made this purchase back in 2006.

Outdated car shines in reliability

2006 Ford Focus SE

Since it is an older vehicle, of course there are going to be problems. It makes this incredibly loud noise that no one can seem to figure out how to resolve it. When I accelerate it literally sounds like it is going to explode, however, the air conditioning works. The heat works. It gets me from point A to point B and ultimately serves its purpose of getting me where I need to. I just wish it was not so loud. It is great on gas mileage. I can make an entire tank of gas last two weeks, and it does not cost much to fill it up either. The paint is definitely weather worn. It is peeling. It is not the best looking car, but as far as reliability I have had no issues. It is nice knowing that when I leave to go to work I do not have to worry about whether or not my car will start. I do not have to worry about sweating on my way to work or on my way home. I do not have to worry about freezing to and from work in the winter time.

Long lasting and fantastic!

2006 Ford Focus SE

This car has been a champ since I got it! It is got wonderful mileage (for a car that is over 10 years old) and handles great. It came with a really nice stereo package and has been super reliable. The only issue is factory motor mounts, which do need to be replaced more often than they should be-but find a good aftermarket set and you are good to go! Acceleration is good and it is so cute! I have loved this car since day one and am dreading the day when I have to get a new one. I plan to keep it as long as possible.

Why a Ford Focus is a good cheap vehicle

2006 Ford Focus SE

Engine mounts need to be replaced every so often, alternators are known for going out prematurely, stock suspension gets old fast, intake manifolds are not reliable. Comfortable ride, interior is fine, exterior is fine besides the ugly headlights. Pretty good gas mileage, but I've had better. Rust is most common on the rockers. Loud vibrations from idle because of the motor mounts. Decently reliable from my experience, cheap parts.

- Kali S

An all around all American car perfect for the working mom on the go.

2006 Ford Focus SE

I really love my ford focus! It gets amazing gas mileage which is important. I've had my car for 5 years now and haven't had to do much to it outside of general maintenance. Oil changes fluid checks tires etc. It doesn't have power windows or locks but it's a great car. Perfect for my family. Its 4 door and the back seat is pretty roomy. It's definitely a car I would recommend to anyone.

Ford Focus reliability, safety and compatibility.

2006 Ford Focus SE

The Ford Focus is a really dependable and reliable vehicle. I have own my Focus for quite a few years and it keeps my mind at ease regarding its fuel consumption, reliability and safety. Due to its compact size it is easy to maneuver around town, it is also comfortable for a road trip or just a ride out in town. I'm happy with my vehicle and will keep it until the end of its time.

My car is very reliable and smooth drive

2006 Ford Focus SE

I love my car. I've always wanted a Ford Focus. I bought this one used a few years ago. It drives smooth and is very reliable. I have a few issues with it, but they might be due to the age of the car or the fact I bought it used. The muffler is loud when I first turn the car on, the defrost takes a long time, the air takes a while to get cold. Other than that I love this car

2006 ford focus is an excellent vehicle to buy!

2006 Ford Focus SE

I have never had a problem with my car since I bought it in 2006. I have done general maintenance like oil changes, every 3000 miles. I put new tires, new battery but other than that no problems. I highly recommend a ford focus. It starts up on extremely cold days in winter and has never overheated in the summer weather. It drives very well and is excellent on gas mileage.

- Betty S

06 focus keeps going and going.

2006 Ford Focus SE

Has been a great car, almost 200,000 miles and haven't replaced as much as a spark plug engine wise. Have replaced tires and brakes a few times from normal wear and tear. The outside door handles eventually wear out. Other than that no complaints. Reliable and sporty, runs great. Would recommend to anyone looking for a nice car that does not kill you at the gas pump.

- Eric C

Ford Focus is a Super Buy

2006 Ford Focus SE

Very reliable. It has 144,000 miles and I have had very low maintenance on it. Regular pill changes and a new battery plus new tires. I would definitely consider purchasing another Ford when this one starts to bite the dust. It is a station wagon which I hesitated to get at first, but it's been great. Easy to transport walker, groceries and people.

- Sheila S

No CD player, electric windows, no sunroof, carpet seats and floor.

2006 Ford Focus SE

It has lasted longer than expected but takes a lot of upkeep. Ac, motor blower fan, thermostat, axle, muffler, calipers, plugs, catalytic converter, and more all went in a year's time. The car doesn't stay very balanced either but I have reached over 200,000 miles now so the wear is not uncommon just a lot went wrong all at once.

- Taler M

I love my ford focus. Smart and reliable.

2006 Ford Focus SE

It is very reliable, great on gas, plenty of trunk space as I can put the hatchback down and get more space. Two doors, would have liked 4 doors but it is a safe car. I bought the car brand new and have very little problems with replacing parts, keep oil changes up to date, tire rotation, etc. I love this car.

- Carene D

Great AC and a just a great car in general. Highly recommended

2006 Ford Focus SE

My car is a great car, it hold gas very well . $25 will fill it up, the car runs smooth and the AC puts out very well. I highly recommend this car for a beginner. Very great car ! The inside has many different features. The seats are comfortable and the car is easy to clean. High recommended and favored.

- Key asia S

Compact yet roomy dependable and affordable

2006 Ford Focus SE

My 2006 Ford Focus is very dependable ,incredibly good on gas. When I do need a minor repair or part I have found it to be affordable. I have never had a problem finding parts or service. It's reasonably priced and always dependable. To be a compact car its roomy and the trunk is large

- Lisa F

Still going strong 13 years later!

2006 Ford Focus SE

I have the SE Wagon. It currently has 250,000 miles on it and runs wonderfully. I get 35 miles per gallon of gas so it is performing well on the road. Being this old we have had a few cosmetic problems- paint flaking off the hood and a few rust spots but overall it's an awesome car.

- Jennifer B

This vehicle is reliable transportation.

2006 Ford Focus SE

The air conditioner never worked properly. The car has been very reliable. Good on gas, comfortable, roomy enough for me. It is a simple model but has been reliable with routine maintenance and oil changes. No complaints about the cars performance. I recommend this model.

- maureen M

Good car for price. Reliable.

2006 Ford Focus SE

Drives well manual transmission parts are cheap. Drives well. Ac is broken issues with emergency brake. But for the cost it's a great car. It drives well. So far has 150k and is still doing well. The hatchback is perfectly. Gives me great room. I love the. 2 door.

- Jeremy M

Ford focus focused on efficiency.

2006 Ford Focus SE

The ford focus is easy to work on, very smooth and easy to drive around locally. Gets good gas mileage. The main downside it faces is that it has no cruise control which can make driving on the highway a bit of a pain. Overall though a very good and practical car.

- Steve S

Clean grey fabric interior with amazing power for small 1.8 4 cylinder engine.

2006 Ford Focus SE

Has issues electronically. Headlights burn out often. Starter issues. It is great on gas. It is very spacious. Fun to drive if you have standard transmission. Brakes wear out a little uneven but it might just need to be aligned properly. Overall great vehicle.

- Alberto V

My review of my 2016 ford focus.

2006 Ford Focus SE

a lot of problems have been happening. I just spent 1500 on front end work. Right now I need a new water filter and new muffler system. Seats are comfy. I have plenty of room in my trunk. Every year I need new windshield wipers. for the front and the back.
