It's been very low maintenance! I have only ever had to take it to the shop for problems maybe once or twice in the almost 10 years I've owned it.

It's been a great car and it has comfortably driven me and my family through life for the last several years. The moonroof is fun and stylish while the creature comforts are lovely such as the heated seats and customizable footwell lighting. The audiophile speaker and 6-disk CD changer are amazing. The faults I find it however are that it's pretty cramped, without a lot of legroom for backseat passengers and a short bench so most people have to squeeze. One other hugely annoying thing is there are no lights in the backseat. If it's dark and you need to find something, you need a flashlight or you're out of luck. That certainly makes it difficult getting an infant or toddler fastened in or taken out of the vehicle. The backseat also dips back instead of laying flat, which also makes installing a child's car seat very challenging. Overall I'd say it's a good car for people without young children but it's not a family friendly vehicle.

A number of problems, but still strong after 160,000 miles

The car is pretty good, but has had enough problems that I can't call it reliable. After about 100,000 miles, the driver side car door failed, meaning that if you pulled on the handle, it wouldn't unlatch the door and you couldn't open it. The air conditioning has also completely stopped working, and Ford doesn't sell the individual parts for the A/C and heating system, so to fix it I would've had to but a whole new system instead of replacing the compressor. The power steering also completely failed for a time, and turning the steering wheel was extremely difficult. No one has explained to me how that even happened. In an effort to be fair, those are the only major issues I've had with my car, and it's at about 160,000 miles, so maybe it's normal for cars to get like that when they get so old.

The Perfect Beginner Car - Simple and Easy

My car is definitely a used car it has its problems, but I take care of it the best I can. I find the seats very comfortable for long drives in the front seats as well as the back seats. I fits up to 5 people in the car, but comfortably fits 3 to 4. My focus gets really good gas mileage averaging around 28 miles per gallon. My car is the basic model that has no extra buttons, but I find it to be a perfect first car for drivers that are learning because there are no distractions and everything is so simple to work and that is what I really do love about my focus, it is simple and perfect for me a college student that has used this car for four years and it has done the job perfectly for me.

Blue ford focus - reliable and functional.

This car is my first car. It is a wonderful starter car. Reliable in perfect conditions. If the tires are low and it is raining, it does not drive very well and in the winter it is not the most reliable. The dashboard vibrates most of the time but other than that, it is great. I constantly have to check the pressure in my tires because they run low usually. I get really good gas mileage, I only really have to fill up about every 2 weeks, possibly less than that. It depends on where I am driving. The trunk is very spacious, I used my car to move and I could fit most of my things in my car, which was surprising. Overall, it is been good to me for the past 2 years.

Reliable vehicle with great gas mileage.

I occasionally have problems with the car when I try to start it and it does not turn over unless I take the key out and try again a few minutes later, turning the key very aggressively. Other than that I love this car; it gets great gas mileage and has enough room for me to move myself to and from college every year. I have never had any problems with it other than the starter, and I have owned it for one year. My car has an auxiliary cord input and is equipped with Sirius XM radio. It has cloth seats that are very comfortable, but sitting in this car does sometimes make my back hurt even though I have never had this kind of problem in previous vehicles.

2008 Ford Focus - great mileage but poor shock system.

While I love the gas mileage for this Ford Focus sedan (averages about 33 mpg, which is pretty darn good) the one thing I detest is that the shocks are pathetic. We have gone through SO many tires, it's not even funny. Granted, we have put a TON of miles on the vehicle, and the roads in our area are full of potholes, but after purchasing the car (it was an emergency purchase, no time to research, which is entirely our fault) we realized that this model was notorious for this issue. Would I buy another Ford Focus? Yes, PROVIDED that it was a more recent model and one that this issue had been resolved!

- Sandy M

It's good value for the price and can really rack up the miles.

The main reason I picked a Ford Focus is because I'm familiar with Ford vehicles and I wanted fuel efficiency. I like that I can get to and from work for an entire week before having to refuel. I also like that it has a good amount of head room for someone of my height (6'+). The main thing I dislike is that it seems like some of the engine parts are cheap plastic and tend to fail over the life of the car. A plastic coolant line failed, and the replacement part was made of metal. I wish they had just started out with a metal part so I would have had to replace it. Otherwise I'm pretty happy with it.

- Joseph M

Great mileage and a dependable ride. I

My car is getting up there in mileage and it is ten years old. I think through the years it has been dependable and reliable, not too high on comfortable. With it's mileage comes some performance issues, it is not as smooth driving as in the past. The AC does not work well and that's not so good in late July. My Ford has not disappointed me. Considering the age of my vehicle, it has definitely been a good bargain to me. My Auto was good on miles per gallon and maintenance was not a problem generally. I respect the Ford brand and would consider it when buying a new car.

Ford focus review: the good and the bad.

I really like my car! I often drive back and forth to my school and home which is about 300 miles. I take this trip about once a month and my car does great during it! My ford focus has great gas mileage and is compact enough to fit into small parking spacing. Since it is a 2009, there are some things that are outdated about it, such as no Bluetooth connectivity, but I still enjoy that the features on the car are fairly simple. The age of the car does not affect the way it runs. It is efficient and there has been little mechanical problems since I have had the car.

- Natalie B

I love my amazing Ford Focus and the enjoyment I get from driving it.

My Ford Focus is an amazing small car. It gets great gas mileage. I have had my Focus for 9 years and I have never had a major problem with it. I drive everyday and my Focus is so dependable. It is comfortable and fun to drive. I am able to make the driver's seat which is more comfortable for me. When I open my trunk, people are always amazed at how roomy it is. I have hauled many things in my Focus during times when I have changed residences. I would definitely encourage others to purchase a Ford Focus. When I am in the market, I will purchase another Ford Focus.

- Lori L

2009 Ford Focus is great!

I love my Ford Focus! It is 10 years old and still going strong. We have had very minimal issues with it and I still feel confident driving around with my infant son after 10 years. We've never had any serious problems, just basic maintenance issues (battery replacement, squeaky brakes, etc). We have taken many road trips comfortably in this car. The backseat is a little tight on space, but that would be my only complaint. Gas mileage is GREAT! Would highly recommend this vehicle for anyone looking for reliable transportation that will last them many years.

- Jessica B

Ford has made a believer out of me for American made products the last.

What I love most is the excellent gas mileage. The easy of drive and controlled handling in all weather issues. I am a fan of the compact size which allows me to fit in any parking spot with the comfort of knowing - I fit. The trunk still is a great size for my things although it is a compact vehicle. I have managed to log over 180, 000 miles and the car still drives great. I wish my a/c wasn't giving me trouble or that to undercoating in rusting out the bottom frame. Because those are the only two reasons I am looking for a newer car.

- Robyn B

Overall, my vehicle is reliable, it just needs a little work.

My car was a hand me down and it has worked great for many years. Recently the AC has not worked as well as it has when it was first bought, I need to go over 2 rpms to have it blow out even a little cold air. Then there is the rattling. The plexiglass that is over the speedometer and what not is not in correctly I guess and it rattles and makes the car sound like it is falling apart. In the rain, no matter what type of tires are on the car, it always is slower to take off from a stop and the wheels rotate a little before taking off.

- Jennifer L

Fun, cute and reliable car to own.

This car has needed very few repairs. Motor mounts were replaced at 82,000 miles under the certified warranty and air conditioner has needed charged twice. The handling in wet conditions is very good but in snow it has some issues getting going on a hill, although I only have all season tires not snow tires. I have owned the car for six years and have replaced the tires twice, the front tires seem to wear out a bit quicker than they should. The car is fun to drive and has been very reliable. I plan to keep it at least another year.

- Angela H

How to check fluids and other necessary functions.

I was in need of a "new" car quickly because of an auto accident. My cousin gave me this car which she had cared for very well, so I have a good feeling based on her good will. It is very easy to turn and maneuver, good on gas, handles well in snow and bad weather. There is nothing I really dislike. My previous car was a Honda fit and I liked the position of the cup holder which was to the left of the steering wheel at dashboard level, much more convenient than the location of my focus, which is between the seats, at seat level.

- Elaine L

Overall this is a great choice for a vehicle.

I got my ford focus about 1 year ago, when I first got the vehicle, I noticed that it rides smooth and not to close to the ground and low. I love the fact that I can fill up my tank with only 20 dollars, it is very cheap on gas and takes you where you need to go. I traveled from Valdosta, ga all the way to Saint Petersburg, Florida no problem. I like the USB inputs and I also love the aux core feature, not to mention the a/c and heat works great in this model of car overall it is family friendly and a bet dependable car.

- Jake S

White Ford Focus 2009 4 seats.

This is a great vehicle for private use. It's a pretty outdated model now but, for someone who just needs to get from point A to point B it does its job. It also features heated, leather seats (easy to clean and wont stain), a roof window, AUX input, USB input, flame lighter unit and cruise control function. The only con I can think of is that it does not have a rear window wiper. Inconvenient when it rains and in harsh weather because I have to clear it by hand otherwise I can't see behind me.

- Lena C

Convenience and efficient.

I haven't had any problems with my car, it runs great, and has been running great for the three years I have had it. It's just the right size. Has satellite radio capabilities, two hookups for lighter connection phone charging. The car is not too low or too high, it's easily accessible for my elderly mother to get in and out of. I like that the seat backs can lay down if you have something long to haul. You have a choice of putting down the large side or the smaller side.

- Violet W

Ford focus 2009 reliable but cheap.

Brakes constantly need to be fixed, I have roll up windows, the seat quality is cheap and stains easily, then the numbers on the radio rubbed off. The CD player broke and just spits out the CDs off, the aux cord is a plus though I am glad I can use my mobile phone to play through the speakers. It gets really good gas mileage so I only have to refill once a month, and it is so reliable I have only had one issue with the battery.

- Cheyenne R

It does not stand up to being in wrecks or the test of time very well.

Overall, I've loved my car since the day I picked it out. Unfortunately, I've been in several accidents, and that coupled with the age has me wanting a new car. I really like the good gas mileage I get and that it has been fairly reliable, but it seems like as it gets older, parts are wearing out quicker and it isn't holding up to the test of time very well. I'm really disappointed in the trade in value on it at this point.

- Dan P

It starts and stops smoothly each time I take it anywhere.

My Ford Focus is painted a lovely, calm light blue. It has excellent interior design with tan leather seats. It averages about 34 miles per gallon on a trip. The air conditioner works well and keeps the interior at a comfortable temperature. It has a comfortable and roomy interior with plenty of legroom and seats that support you. It has a moon roof that is unique and adds to the great design of this 2009 Ford Focus.

- Joseph D

The gas mileage, it's very good and affordable.

My car is a Ford Focus. One problem it has is oil leaks, and it is naturally, a manual car, so it's features are limited. However, it has excellent speed, excellent function overall of the car, and an awesome gas mileage. It is reliable and a great size. Overall, it is a very comfortable car with plenty of space, except the back seat, the back seat is a bit cramped. But, it is an excellent, reliable and also stylish car.

- Amanda N

Super reliable and excellent visibility.

Perfect size for a one person household. Excellent visibility, practically no blind spots. Extremely reliable. No issues with the car not caused by collisions. Gas mileage is average. Has a great kick to it, and the brakes are very sensitive. No USB port, only AUX cord, no hands free devices. Speakers are great! I have driven it to about 150k miles so far and it runs pretty much the same as it did 100k ago.

- Laura J

Awesome gas mileage this thing gets like 37 miles per gallon on the highway and it gets 30 at least in town you in it's a great car.

I love this car because it is spacious the trunk is accessible from the backseat very convenient with kids. Also there is factory-installed option button at the bottom of the radio section that changes to seven different colors in the cup holders and in Lighting on the floors in the front and back seats and it's really cool for the kids it has Microsoft sync Sirius XM radio awesome car great gas mileage.

- Amanda M

I love my Focus! 10/10 Car.

Absolutely good with gas mileage! My cost of gas went down once I bought and switched to my Ford Focus. It has very comfortable seats. Front seats have the heating option which I love during the winter time or when by back is hurting. It also has plenty of room in the backseat. The backseats actually fold down to make it possible to haul longer, or more, objects than your trunk can hold.

- Adrian C

Getting old but works just fine.

The engine's starting to sound a little weird, the headlights look a little uneven, when the engine's on the right headlight vibrates furiously, and sometimes the car will not accelerate as fast as you tell it to, but the speakers are pretty good, the a/c and heating work really well, and the seats are comfortable. There's a surprising amount of space in the trunk.

- Joseph D

Ford Focus is the way to go!

Love my Ford Focus! Gets great gas mileage in town and on highway and is small enough to park in smaller spaces downtown. I have a 4 door, the backseat does not have a lot of legroom, but the trunk is larger and can expand into back seat with fold down seats. Has been very reliable and haven't had any mechanical issues in the 4 years I have had this Focus.

- Danielle D

Focus meets all my requirements.

I have a Ford Focus. The car gets good gas mileage. It just requires routine maintenance and still runs really well. Although it is a small car, I find it comfortable and have plenty of room. The back seats fold down, opening up the trunk to carry large items. It is a 4 cylinder and has excellent acceleration. Great car for a young person or a 2nd car.

- Lee S

Reliable with ample cargo space. A simple car that is fun to drive.

The ford focus 4 door compact sedan is surprisingly reliable. I have had mine 10 years and have had no major problems. It handles easy and is comfortable. The only issues I have had in ten years are needing repairs to the stabilizer bars and alignment. No engine issues whatsoever. Even my mechanic is impressed with the engine reliability and stability.

- Britt A

Ford Focus 2009: a great little car.

I for the most part like my vehicle. I get great gas mileage. However, because it is an older vehicle, it does not have Bluetooth capabilities or a touch screen radio/monitor. I think if it had this then it would be the perfect vehicle for work and play. The only real problem I have is that the bottom of the doors and underneath the vehicle is rusty.

- Victoria M

Gas saver. Great car. Rarely ever breaks down.

I have had some transmission problems but that is because the previous owner had a crash in the car. But other than that I can put 20 dollars in my tank and it lasts me almost 2 weeks. Saves gas like a champ. Plus it is roomy and comfortable. Rides smooth not bumpy and low to the ground like some cars. Definitely a great car for first time drivers.

- Maria S

Great vehicle for an everyday driver

Very comfortable ride. Low cost of maintenance. Includes a sync system so you can use Bluetooth. Plenty of room for a smaller sedan. Great gas mileage. The only serious mechanical issue I had was that the part that recognizes your key had a small plastic piece break and I couldn't start the car. The piece had to be special ordered and cost $125.

- Austin N

2009 ford focus is a great car!

Love my ford focus! The car is the perfect size, not too big but not too small. It rides smoothly, and it is not too loud. I bought it used and haven't had any problems with my vehicle. It is very reliable. Good on gas mileage, I can get about thirty two miles per gallon. My favorite features are the bluetooth calling feature and heated seats.

- Donald B

Reliable and safe long term transportation

I've had my vehicle for 10 years, bought the extended care pkg, no real issues. The vehicle has been very reliable it has been used primarily as transportation back-and-forth across the state. I appreciate that the car came with Ford SYNC Which at the time was very useful it is still useful but the car seemed to not always understand me now

- Karen H

Voice command, fuel efficient.

This vehicle has good fuel efficiency and handles very well for my liking. I feel comfortable driving it in cramped spaces because of its size and it accelerates fairly quickly. Occasionally it seems to lag a little after sitting for an extended period of time, but other than that it is a comfortable vehicle with great Bluetooth capabilities.

- Madison M

Car runs well for all the miles I drive.

My 09 Ford Focus has been a great car. It replaced my 88 Ford tempo. I have put 200, 000 miles on my Focus without any thing more but oil changes and tires and front end alignments. I will be putting new brakes and tires on before winter. It does not use much oil. I go 5000 miles between changes since I drive 80 miles a day to work.

- Jim H

Best car for new drivers!

This car is one of the best! The interior is very comfy and it is always important to drive comfortably. This car has very little blind spots so it is a great car for those learning to drive or new drivers. I have had no mechanical issues with my car personally so that is great. The gas mileage is by far the best part!

- chloe J

My Ford focus is a reliable but no frills vehicle

My car is reliable but not fancy. It can feel a little flimsy at times. My children say it sounds a little clunky. However it has been a workhorse needing only minor repairs while I've owned it. The back seats don't have a lot of leg room which has caused problems for my family as the kids have gotten older and taller.

- Maria M

Ford Focus a great car to have and enjoy.

I have never had any problems with this car, dealers want to buy it from me. This was one of the best cars Ford made. I have over hundred thousand miles on it and it still runs good. If you could buy a Ford Focus now I would recommend it. This car did not have a lot of features nothing electrical roll down windows.

- Rebecca L

Ford focus 4 doors, black car with cloth grey seats.

Very reliable was bought with high mileage but very clean and taken care of, almost perfect on the outside, apart from a scratch. Has problems with the AC in the winter, often struggle with the steering wheel lowering itself involuntary. Very comfortable to carpool in, if anything would be changed it's the color.

- Lucia R

Great car for beginner drivers

I love my vehicle for being my first car. It is a great beginners car to have. It is small and comfy. I like the shape of the car, it is very sleek and simple. I have had engine troubles but this has been 2 years after owning the used car. It isn't the fastest car, as in it speeding up. Overall, it is reliable.

- Norma P

It's good on gas, so that is a plus!

I need a sensor because my engine light is on. I also need my back bumper fixed. Tires would be nice because 3 of them are losing traction. It also could use a paint job. My car is black and it has a lot of scratches on it!!Although I really appreciate and love my car, it could use some fixings to it! Thanks!

- Joy A

It gets fantastic gas mileage!

I love the low gas mileage it gets. I also love that it is compact and I can park it almost anywhere. Also, I have owned it for almost 10 years and other than regular upkeep and repairs, it hasn't needed any major repairs. The only complaint I have is that it's control panel does not display the temperature.

- Tracy E

My reliable vehicle, a two door Ford Focus.

It has stick shift that is easy to use. It is two doors with a hatchback trunk. Its driving performance is smooth and reliable. It has good fuel economy in the city and highway. It has many hazard lights to inform you if it is running low on something. It can drive 250, 000 miles and many parts replaceable.

- Dicky L

Forever Fan Ford Girl for Life

My focus has comfortable seating for short and long car trips. The gas mileage is fantastic on long drives. It is reliable and fuel efficient. The electronic components are easy to change and utilize as needed. Having the ability to play music from my phone through my car stereo is an additional bonus.

- Kat A

great gas mileage. Handles the road beautifully.

I bought the car when it was 5 years ol, I have done very little work to it in the last four years. I put new tires, and shocks on it, and it needs a little front end work, tie rods and ball joints but it is great on gas, 32 average mile per gallon and it handles beautifully. I would buy another for sure.

- Tammy B

It is a good size and it gets decent gas mileage on the highway.

It works well enough. The finish wore off quickly and isn't worth re-doing, but it looks terrible. The cruise control went out but I don't care to fix it. And the A/C required replacing last year for an exorbitant amount of money. I don't particularly like the car, but it gets me from point A to point B.

- Kathy V

Ford Focus has too many issues to list.

My Ford Focus handles fairly well. However, there are too many cosmetic issues that I constantly deal with. For instance, the side view mirror controls fell off. The overdrive button popped off and the check engine light came on as soon as I left the dealer's lot (I bought it used from a Kia dealership).

- George E

Not to reliable during the winter months

My car for the most part is good, doesn't do good during the winter months tho. Slides on snow and ice easy. Gas is pretty good about 32 miles per gallon. Just the right size, although it's a little tight on the drivers size for heavy people. My family fits good and is a great car to drive cross country.

- Avery L

Ford focus has great mileage but average features.

This car has great gas mileage, lots of space in the front seat and back. Everything is pretty general about it otherwise (sound system, storage space, comfort, etc. ) I would enjoy it more if it had cruise control, comfier seats & possibly even heated seats?! Overall though, I thoroughly enjoy this car.

- Destiny P

The color is a non-traditional dark blue, not many cars are that color

The gas mileage on my car has been great, especially on the highway, not a gas guzzler. The dashboard makes a noise and almost sounds shaky, but so far there has never been a serious issue with it. The battery has need changing twice, but aside from that the car has never given me any serious problems.

- Megan G

I have a white Ford Focus four door.

This car is a good car for any teenager first car. It is always having maintenance problems and is always in the shop. Tires go bad really fast. Car is really bad in the winter time getting snow tires makes it much easier. I have put more money into getting the car fixed then what I paid for the car.

- Abby D

I love the heated seats and the bluetooth

I have a 2009 ford focus and I have had it for about 8 months and this car has only has one problem since I got it. The strut on the front right broke. Which is a common thing that happens. Other then that the car is great, it has leather interior, heated seats, aux, bluetooth, ac and cruise control.

- Abby J

The gas mileage is awesome

My Ford Focus is a very reliable car. The gas Mileage on the car is incredible. I have had no major issues with my car other than regular maintenance problems. Will drive this thing till it will not go anymore. Have driven my car from east coast to the west coast and never have had a problem with it.

- Nick C

Ford Focus, handles well and is a lifelong car.

Really nice handling, does tend to rust by the lower doors. Reliable and has nice horsepower for a smaller car. Since my vehicle is currently over 100 thousand miles, it still operates very well after a long highway usage. Overall, I am very pleased with my ford and how it has treated me for 10 years

- Phillip M

The Bluetooth accessibility

Really good affordable car. The gas mileage alone is by far awesome I have taken trips across many states and still have yet to have a problem. Great car I'd recommend it. As long as you keep up with maintenance it'll last you long time. Many family member have this car because of me recommending it.

- Carlos M

It is reliable transportation for all our traveling needs

We haven't experienced any problems on either vehicle. Regular. Maintenance oil changes; tire rotations and anything else was always done when it was needed we plan to always buy a ford with how reliable they've been for us. Ford is good quality and reliable compared to any other vehicle we've owned

- Tara S

The Cons of the Ford Focus.

The car gets terrible gas mileage. The windshield keeps cracking. The car vibrates and runs ruff. A/c is terrible. Seats are very uncomfortable. There is no trunk release button on the interior of the car. So if you lose the key fob you have to turn off the car to use the key to access the trunk.

- Stacy K

The 2009 Ford Focus is an ok car it is reliable and easy to fix.

Does not have cruise control. Has a lot of trunk space. Easy maintenance. Ok gas mileage. Car has space for 5 people 4 would be comfortable as the middle seat in the back is small. CD player. AUX cord. 2 Cigarette lighters/ charge areas. Mileage and gas are digital. Low gas warning at 50/25/10/0.

- Alexis W

Not a family car butt a good point A to point B.

It does not have electric windows or doors locks. The back seat does not have a lot of legroom for anyone who wants to sit back there that is taller than 4 feet. The front seat is not any better. It is an ok car to get to point A to point B but I do not recommend it for someone that has a family.

- Kristol M

Decent starter vehicle not a family car.

This is a decent point A to B car. Not a family car maybe a starter car for a college or high school student. Leg room in back is minimal not for anyone taller than 4 feet. Front seat is not any better. Not much storage space or cup holder space. Factory model does not have anything power on it.

- Kristol M

Ford Focus(es) on Performance and Reliability

The Ford Focus has been a reliable vehicle lasting me nearly 9 years with only minor issues. However, regular vehicle maintenance will help to keep the car in tip top shape and servicing you for a good length of time. I have had good gas mileage, good service, little down time and reliability.

- Tanya R

This car is small but it is wife proof.

It's a small car, good on gas, AC has gone out every year since I bought it. But It seems to be pretty sturdy. My wife had the fan belt come off where it sits and she drove it three miles like that, overheating. I thought the car was ruined but a buddy replaced the belt and the car runs fine

- Brian B

Great for being 10 years old

Got it second hand and it needed a new transmission. I've had no problems with it since. It's a ten year old car that has Bluetooth audio, great air conditioning, and lots of space for being a smaller car. The engine seems to be working well, as do the headlights, brakes, turn signals etc.

- Sam D

A really good compact car that is good on gas and has no problems.

I have had this car for two years. Before that my mother had the car. She bought it brand new from the lot. Other than normal wear and tear the car has had no major problems. Good on gas, enough room for my small family. Really wouldn't sell it unless I found something else I really liked.

- Williams W

Nice little car easy to drive and fuel efficient

Comfortable easy to drive and take care. I've never had trouble with it. Very fuel efficient. Oil is easy to change. If I need to look at the engine it's easy to find things and isn't hard to figure out what is wrong. Only think I don't like is that you have to have a key to the gas tank

- A D

The Ford Focus looks sharp love the color and drives smooth.

Very roomy, big trunk, runs smoothly, good on gas, love the deep blue color, crisp ac, Bluetooth compatible radio, am and FM, CD player, easy to keep clean, great family car, very reliable, love the body of the car, built very well, great to take on trips, not much maintenance required.

- Erin W

Ford Focus: Versatile and practical.

I have had my car for 6 years now and have had minimal problems. It is a good daily driver and has sufficient space for storage. It gets about 25 mpg in the city and drives very well. The only reason I will be upgrading from this car is for a car with more seating options for my family.

- Kayla L

Big problems, but great help.

It has a call back on it, so you really have to keep an eye on it and make sure you keep gas at half full, and kind of expensive to keep maintaining. Car once broke now in the middle of the highway it was a hassle. But it drives well and has Bluetooth in it which helps, and great space.

- Katrina V

No issues unless not maintained regularly.

I have only had the car for less than a month, as I bought it off someone else. It seems to run great and has comfortable seating. I have not had problems with it but the owner before did, however that was due to regular maintenance getting not done on time. I wish it had a back wiper.

- Lenor L

Old and rusty with holes on either side.

It has cloth seats that get stained and attracts dog hair which makes detailing the inside hard. Each rocker panel has rusted out and has holes in the side that need replacing. It is outdated. It is small and compact. Has too many blind spots since it is small and hides window views.

- Kristen F

I love it very much, and the mpg is very good.

My car works pretty well, I usually only drive it to work and back and it does a great job. Gas is very good, seeing how I have to drive 2 hours away to a dentist appointment almost every month. I enjoy the radio, and the speakers are very great. Everything in the motor is good also.

- Carol C

Silver Ford Fusion For The First Time Buyer

My vehicle is silver. Air conditioning does not work. Has had a few problems in the past with alternator, breaks,etc. Seats are comfortable. Black interior it's reliable for a few more years probably trunk is very large has plenty cup holders. Is a very good car for a first time car.

- Serenity R

Heated seats cannot be beat!

Zippy in town has 4 cylinders so sounds like it is really working hard. On cold windy winter day my car will easily blow across iced roads very comfortable. Hooray for heated seats for a midwestern winter drive. Lots of trunk room with fold down back seats. Gas mileage is fantastic.

- Dawn L

My awesome 2009 Ford focus with roomy interior and Sirius Radio.

I really like my Ford focus. It's not too big but it's roomy inside. It's white outside with tan interior. It can with Sirius Radio which I love. I've had this vehicle for the past 3 years and it still holds up and is in good condition and I hope to have it for many years to come.

- Maria A

Ford Focus 2009: nice interior, and runs well despite being an older car.

Vehicle still runs well even though I have had it for so many years. Haven't had many problems with it, although there was a leak that I had to get repaired around a year or two ago. Interior of the car is also very nice. Would recommend it for people looking into buying a used car.

- Hunter W

Does not drive very fast. Good for a first time car for first time drivers.

This car is fairly reliable. It runs well. It is kind of small. It gets awful gas mileage but gets me from point A to point B. I have had a few minor problems with it like the breaks but that is just because it is old. The wheel also shimmies but that could be any number of things.

- Alexa D

Ford focus is my #1 choice for a reliable most dependable car!

I have never had any major issues in the past five years I have had it. The little things that occurred were always replaceable from buying the inexpensive parts online and fixing it at home instead of paying an outrageous amount at an auto body shop. It also has great gas mileage!

- Elisabeth G

Family car with a budget.

The car handles well although an oil change is due. It handles well on long drives or short trips. Handles fuel real well for any amount of services. The car seems lacking in a decent engine performance although there is enough torque. Safety is top notch and shouldn't be changed.

- Richard O

Reliable car with great mileage and perfect size

Very reliable, good gas mileage, hardly any problems besides normal wear and tear. Coming up on 200,000 miles and still runs smoothly and is reliable. As far as comfort, it is average. After a while it can become uncomfortable. Cruise control, gas mileage, and size are all a plus.

- Eric G

The perfect Ford car for you.

My car has never given me any problems. Of course I have had to do routine touch ups such as tire changes and oil changes but other than that it runs perfectly fine. I'd definitely recommend this car to anyone. Its safe and reliable. It definitely had the perfect amount of space.

- Tiara W

Ford focus that seats family of 4 comfortably

Car has been extremely reliable. Currently has 172,203 miles and is still running strong. Highway mileage averages 36 to 39 mpg, depending on who is driving. Fit a family of four quite comfortably. Has Sirius radio capability and sync, 2 charging points along with 1 USB port

- Shelly M

The AC doesn't quite reach the bag of the car, especially on hot days.

I like it as a car overall, I think it's a pretty basic one. I like its Bluetooth capabilities and that it has a USB port. I don't like how the AC doesn't quite reach the back and the sound can be too loud in the back so much so that you can't hear the people in the front talk.

- Miranda H

Fun economical car to drive.

It is a 5 spd shift which is very economical to drive, simple to maintain and fun to drive. Did have trouble w manual gearbox in cold winter, must change the gearbox fluid every 75-100k miles or becomes gummy and doesn't shift very well. About the only trouble have had with it.

- David C

Ford Focus 09 review. Good and the ugly

Comfortable to drive and reliable. Great gas mileage. Modern technology in radio. Great Bluetooth. Not the prettiest, but very sturdy. Great life to it. Repairs infrequent. Durable car. The handling seems to be affected under severe weather conditions, may be experience based.

- Harrison C

It's a great first car. Not the greatest for the winter/ snow/ ice but still a valuable buy

Great vehicle, especially for a first car, which mine was. Its compact but still can fit a lot more that is appears. It's a poor ride for heavy winters which I have been in over that last few seasons, I got through but a car better suited for the weather would have been easier

- Camille r

the seats are very comfortable for long trips!

at about 135k miles the serpentine belt began to make noises. Easy and cheap fix. Motor mounts do go bad, I've had one replaced and another one needs to be replaced at 146k miles. Other than that it's a great car. Can go fast if you're not scared of really stepping on the gas

- Loren J

It's perfect for small statured people!

It's a fine car. Nothing special. Gets me from point A to point B. Its spacious, reliable, good on gas and mileage. It got me from Vegas to Portland with no problems. I am sure new it would have been great new, but I bought it from a friend, who bought it from a rental place.

- Stephanie S

The fact that my brakes still work as well as a new car is amazing to me.

I haven't had any problems with my car. The brakes are like brand new and it drives smoothly as far as features go, there are not very many but I do like the fact that there’s an AUX cord but overall it is just a super dependable car and I would buy it again in a heartbeat.

- Dana R

I would title my review, get up and go!

This car has low maintenance. Great for driving long distance or around town and fits 5 people comfortably. Is fully loaded and handles the road very well. Only problems I have had is, since this is an older car it makes noise under the hood. Not sure where it is coming from.

- Sherry M

I love being able to conduct vehicle health reports from my driveway with sync.

This car is great on gas! I love the sync system! It allows me to have hands-free phone calls and stream the music that I really want to hear. The interior lighting adds a cute touch of girly-ness to the car. I was very fortunate to find the car and at a great price as well!

- Acacia R

Ford Focus 2009 vehicle review.

The vehicle has been okay. I have had to replace the water pump and I know the clutch will be at some point in the future as well. My suspension is starting to make a slight noise which worries me. Overall, I have owned the car for a good period of time without major issues.

- Travis M

Its pretty and roomie and overall nice.

I love my car. I have had it for about 10 years with no major issues. Its roomie inside and can hold a large load of stuff. I like the color. Its has an AUX line so that's pretty helpful. It also has 2 charging ports for my phone which is nice when I ride with someone else.

- Laura B

Ford focus, great little car for students or commuters.

Great on gas, have had very few problems, replaced tires, brakes usual things, great in snow with winter tires, like the sync system, is comfortable on long trips, like driving standard, has lots of trunk room rear seats fold down, auto lock doors, ac did go after 9 years.

- Marjorie J

long lasting car

Well my Ford Focus has been great. Except for it attracts and unusual amount of deer. So far 3 deer have hit and damaged my vehicle. Sadly, none of the deer survived but the Focus is still ticking despite the headlight being destroyed and having a deer bounce off the door.

- Mer P

Rear view mirrors are heated.

The horn went out fairly quickly on the car it had gotten wet as to how it was placed in the car other than that it's good runs good another thing a light came on cause of something placed in the seat that is not a person and wont come off without going to the dealership.

- Joanna C

This car is not the best but does the job.

It always has problems. It vibrates a lot. Does not get very good gas mileage. It always has issues with the engine and body. Every time I start the car it takes a minute. I am always catching nails with my tires. The car shop guy always complains when I bring my car in.

- Caitlin K

Basic car, has lasted years

Breaks are getting older but other than runs well. Sound system isn't that great and it came built in with Sirius which no longer is a good service in my opinion but that's not the fault of Ford. Also love the big trunk and takeaway bottom with space for a tire and more.

- Justice S

Dependable Ride at an affordable price, consistent performance

It's been a great car. Easy to maintain and dependable. It is good on gas. It feels safe. There isn't a lot of space for leg room, but the trunk is a decent size. The only issues I've had are tires and brakes. The paint isn't peeling. The air and heat are still working.

- Sarah L

Good car Ford Focus you should try it.

My car a Ford Focus 2009 is a very nice car runs smoothly minimal expense for upkeep easy to repair very good on gas mileage I may get a new one when this one is finally done I strongly / highly recommend this vehicle you will enjoy it for years to come that is it baby.

- Scott R

My car is gold. It is really easy to find in the parking lot.

I love driving my Ford Focus car. It handles very well on the road. It has an am- FM radio and CD player. It is really good on gas. You can move the seat so that someone that is short can drive it. My car has a really roomy trunk so you can put a lot of groceries in it.

- Melissa B

Ford focus is reliable and good on gas.

It has been a very reliable vehicle. I have never had a problem with it, and never had work done to it other than standard maintenance. It is the base model, so there’s nothing fancy about it, and has the performance and comfort you would expect for that kind of car.

- Diane S

There are lights that light up around the cup holders and middle thing.

It's recently in the shop right now. I've bought it in a used car dealership and there's just so much wrong with it. The key system was on theft mode and my throttle needed to be fixed as well. I put a lot on this car, but overall it's a pretty good car for a commuter.

- Tania Q

Great car for a young individual!

As someone who absolutely does not take care of my car the way I should my Ford Focus has been wonderful for me. I get good gas mileage and it has been very reliable. The biggest issue I have had is always seeming to run over sharp objects and having to get new tires.

- Morgan W

Very reliable, affordable, great on gas.

My 2009 Ford Focus is very reliable and I have yet to run into major problems with it at 150k miles. It is great on gas, has Bluetooth, great stereo system, comfortable leather seats, and easy to operate. It can go pretty fast as well since it's so small and powerful.

- Mariah S

I love the sync system on the car. I also love the changing floorboard lights.

The car has been pretty good except when it hit 217, 000 miles. The main problem that I have had with it is when a the oil cap exploded off and oil got everywhere. I think the starter might be going out on it. But, it has been extremely reliable. Really recommend it.

- Jessica W

the sync feature is awesome it allows me use of my cell phone hands free

The only problem I've ever had was a wheel bearing went bad, other than that no problems whatsoever. Very reliable and dependable car! Also the sync feature allows for easy hands free calling. It's fairly comfortable and great on gas mileage. Overall a great vehicle

- James H

First year ford focus car.

It's a great commuter car and gets decent gas mileage. When it's hot, the door stick and you can't open them from the inside or outside. The car makes a lot of noise and the engine just recently blew a piston. Overall it is not a bad car, especially for a first car.

- Kate A

One thing I like is the Bluetooth that is in the car

My car is very comfy for long drives. Has enough room when you have kids. Love the trunk space very good on gas the performance is great. The parts for the car are very cheap. Also is a nice low budget car great for a first time car. Also has Bluetooth added into it

- Jackie B

I absolutely love my vehicle. Great on gas, and fun details in the interior.

Great mpg highway/city, sync functions, Bluetooth, color changing features for the interior, extreme comfort breathable seats. Alignment issues are known with Ford Focuses and have had issues with alignment issues on my car that has been fixed on multiple occasions.

- Anna F

My gas tank can be filled up with only thirty dollars.

My car has auto pilot, ac and heat, it can fill up gas tank with only thirty dollars and only has fourteen thousand miles on it. My car drives so smooth and has perfectly working breaks. My car has strong windshield wipers, windshield wiper fluid, and a large trunk.

- Miranda B

My 2009 Ford Focus is a small, silver 4 door reliable vehicle.

My car is great on gas, it has been having trouble starting lately. It is sort of small, but big enough to carry the things I need. It been fairly reliable. Air did go out recently though. I put freon in it and it is fine now. It is great for me and my family of 3.

- Faith W

The speakers are my favorite because the bass in it is out of this world.

This only thing that is a disadvantage about this car is it is not a newer model. It is fast which I like but the programming is a little old. It is a perfect size for me. It is gets me where I have to go with really no problems minus the one that I just mentioned.

- Kendra W

Great car with great gas mileage.

I love my little 4 door, silver Ford Focus. It gets amazing gas mileage, and is perfect for my family and I. We love the trips we are able to take in it and barely spend any gas. I would highly recommend this vehicle to anyone looking to buy one in the near future.

- Faith W

Good on gas and it�s super cute

My car was sold to me with low miles on it. It's good on gas but it seems like my brakes went bad quick, I have an electrical problem, something is loose in my driver side door so it makes a rattling noise. It's light in the back so it slides easily in the winter

- Cassidy J

Solid and reliable vehicle

This is a really solid little car. Quite spacious for a compact, as my 6'4 husband has enough headspace and legroom. Took us reliably from California to Chicago when it was 8 years old. It's a bit noisy at this point, but has held up well for its age and mileage.

- Julia E

A Lemon. Sometimes the key will not fit into the ignition without help.

The rear bumper is falling off and is currently being held on with gorilla tape. It makes a lot of noise when driving on the highway but mechanic can find nothing wrong so it is just a loud car. The radio only picks up three FM stations and only one AM station.

- joyce L

Ford focus summary - over 100,000 miles has issues

After 100,000 miles it began to have transmission problems. It was worked on but the people who fixed it didn't do a very good job and now it jitters in certain areas. When it was under 100,000 there weren't any issues with it. I wouldn't recommend a ford though

- Christian T

It is a small car with comfort and sleekness to it.

The Ford Focus is usually pretty good with miles per gallon and gas, the interior is comfortable and sleek. The only problems I have had so far is just needing to replace certain parts that do not work anymore, but that is because my car is almost 10 years old.

- Stephanie L

Ford focus review of my experience.

The things that my car lacks is probably horsepower and advanced technology like Bluetooth. I do love the fact that it is good on gas as well as roomy enough for me. It is not that spacious for my two huskies though. Overall it is still a very reliable vehicle.

- Samantha V

Good Gas Mileage, Not-So-Good Sway Bar/Links

It is a fairly reliable car, and gets great gas mileage. However, I've had a handful of issues with the sway bar and sway bar links breaking and/or loosening up over time and needing maintenance. I have heard of other people with this car having the same issue.

- Mackenzie K

2009 silver Ford Focus good running car.

I have a very good car, good on gas and maintenance, vey easy to keep up, good family car for everyday use, I would tell anyone to get one, even a manual Focus is easily maintained, just watch your foot on that clutch, the parts are inexpensive and easy to get.

- Candice D

Solid American car. Buy one!

It is like driving a rocket. I love it. I also think it is a well built vehicle. I did have a hydraulic problem with it, though, after hitting potholes. I have a lot of mileage on it, and it still runs terrific. I would recommend a ford to any decent American.

- Carrie A

It has great gas mileage since it is a 4 cylinder car.

My vehicle is a red 2009 Ford Focus SE. It is a 4 cylinder 2-door coupe. It is very small and great on gas mileage and I use it as a vehicle for going back and forth to work. I don't really think it will work long term though and I will need something larger.

- Janie K

It is a very good and reliable car.

I haven't had any problems with the vehicle. It runs great. It is very reliable. Gets me from point A to point B. It is very comfortable and I just love the car. The car came with the normal radio and all that. If need parts very easy to find and easy to fix.

- Alicia S

It's a perfect car for just about anything you could need a car for, family, work, friends, long hauls or short this car can work for everyone.

My car gets great mileage from highway and city both. It rides very smoothly and has been amazing as far as upkeep. I wish the in car SYNC system was more up to date as far as being a newer in car smart system for the year it's from, seems a little outdated.

- Charles R

Cars are good. It is amazing.

The performance is really good. Mine had a sunroof, moonroof, Bluetooth and it lights up with a click of a button. The gas mileage is pretty good as well. On average I get around 30 miles per gallon, and at the worst it is 25 miles per gallon. Excellent car.

- Dylan G

2009 Ford Focus. Great first car. It�s compact sedan with 4 doors.

It has no air conditioner right now and giving me a lot of problems. It's time for something new. I wish I could afford something new but would just be happy with air conditioning. Other than that it has served its purpose. It has four new tires and motor.

- Cheryl A

Smooth ride with great gas mileage.

Great on gas mileage and very smooth ride. I have had to replace multiple parts, sway bar, drive shaft, engine mounts, wheel bearings, etc.. All in the past year 2018 so really has held up since I bought it in 2009. Only had to put in regular maintenance.

- Amber C

The car is roomy for a small car.

It is a great car on the highway and on your gas. The inside is roomy for a little car, and I find there are only a few blind spots. The back seat was comfortable enough that my husband, two dogs, and myself drove cross country without much fuss at all!

- Courtney W

It has great gas mileage and a Bluetooth radio.

My Ford focus is a really good car. It has 13.5 gallon tank, and I can long car drives with filling once there and back. It takes 30 dollars from empty to full. It has a Bluetooth radio built into it. Also it's only comfortable for you and another person.

- Brennan S

The car is great. It is compact and super fun and easy to drive.

Over all this car is a great l, reliable car. There have been some issue. It vibrates when it is idling at a stop sign or red might. I feel as if the gas mileage should be better or the fuel tank to be larger. I am getting about 400 miles on a full tank.

- Jill O

I have no idea to as what to. Say here beside it is small and compact.

Having issues with the frame of the car plus cv joints and front in alignment off otherwise it is a very good model. Low on gas smooth ride clean inside out small compact love the seats this is the car for you if you like a compact car automatic love it.

- Yolanda Y

Dark grey Focus with black interior.

My vehicle is very reliable, I drive it to and from work every single day. I have only had minor issues with it; such as new brakes and tires or getting regular oil changes. It is very comfortable but black interior can get really hot in the summertime.

- Stephanie R

Awesome Ford Focus recommendations.

My Ford Focus is absolutely awesome. Reliable. I am never scared to go anywhere in it. I have not had and mechanical issues since I bought it over a year ago. It is beyond great. Would definitely recommend to anyone that is looking to buy a new vehicle.

- Julia B

I love my Focus never missing a day of work!

Very reliable I love my Ford Focus. I travel in my job so great gas mileage is a major plus! It's very comfortable and it has lots of trunk space. I have never had any major problems with performance. I would recommend to friends and family. I love it.

- Tamara F

Only 30,000 mile for a 2009

My car had only one owner before me so even though its a 2009, it has less than 30,000 miles!! I haven't had any car trouble yet. It runs great, it's comfortable, and extremely reliable! I get great gas Mileage on the highway and on the regular roads

- Elizabeth M

Get the SES package. It costs a bit more but it's totally worth it in the long run.

It's an amazing daily commuter, I've put at least a hundred and ten thousand miles on mine. I have the SES edition, which has leather and all the bells and whistles. Aside from it becoming increasingly fragile at its age, it's been a great car for me.

- Daniel P

Good gas mileage, but will not hold up well for over 10 years. If you are looking for a car that will stand the test of time, this is not it.

It gets pretty good gas mileage, but has not held up well over the years. The leather on the seats, fabric on the inside of the top of the car, the handles, are all falling off or apart. This is even with my car not being drive over 100k miles yet.

- Patty C

The great gas mileage both in the city and on the highway.

The get up and go is my biggest problem. The older it gets the worse the problem gets. It seems to always hesitate and then finally kick it up. Does not have a smooth acceleration. I do love my gas mileage, and I have never had any major problems.

- Lisa W

It gets pretty good mileage.

It is a pretty good car. There's not much room in the back seat but there's a lot of trunk room. It is not the best a driving on wet roads. I like the fact that it tells you how many miles you have left in your gas tank. It is a pretty comfy car.

- Haley W

It's a good daily driver and gets decent gas mileage. Better on long trips than short, but that's every car.

I love my car. My only complaints come from it being used - the interior trim is broken in places and the carpet isn't quite hooked down right. It doesn't affect how the car runs and I can't really afford to have it fixed, so I keep it as is.

- Paula H

Beware the model differentiations

It has held up incredibly well through 4 different owners and many years of constant use. It uses fully synthetic oil, which significantly increases the cost of oil changes. Mild factory issues, but none that harm the usefulness of the vehicle

- Jason E

Very reliable car, has gotten through a lot with 110000 miles.

Good reliable car, no issues besides maintenance just got new battery, tires, brakes. Has lasted and ran really good. No major issues. Car is very small though, have two car seats in the back and very hard to fit much else. Trunk is ok size.

- Jessica T

It is easy to handle on icy roads.

It is small. It is easy to drive. It has many good safety features. I especially like the abs. It does not slide when braking on slick roads. It can be paired with my cell phone. It gets really good gas mileage. Repairs are not expensive.

- Dianne N

I think they should know that my car is a great car to have because it's cheap to fuel up.

I love my car because it has great fuel mileage and easy to get in and out of parking spaces. The only thing I dislike about my car is that it's getting old. I had no problems with it besides changing starter and getting new tires.


The Ford focus gets excellent gas mileage.

This 4 door manual transmission sedan is perfect for me as a college student. I consistently get 30-36 mpg. Maintenance is cheap because the parts themselves are really cheap. I haven't had any breakdowns since I got it a year ago.

- Tres B

GREAT on gas! Totally recommend to every working college student

I love how good it is on gas. I have to travel pretty far daily for both work and school and it's super convenient how well it is on gs. Also, love the way it rides and all the added features it has and how small and compact it is.

- Mariah M

It is reliable and really fun to drive. It is a great option for when you want a car that looks good but aren't willing to spend your life's savings.

I like that it is small, compact, and gets me where I need to go. The color is pretty as well, ice blue. It also gets good gas mileage, which is a super plus! If I could change anything, it would be the interior colors.

- C C

Great fuel economy and sport so it's fun to drive. It has a good stereo and sync also.

I like my Focus because it gets great gas mileage. I used to like the manual transmission because it was fun to drive but I don't like driving it in cities any more. It has started to rust and I'm not happy about that.

- Brittany V

Ford focus 2009: dynamite comes in small packages.

The Ford focus 2009 model is a relatively small vehicle but it can sure travel long distances I. E Arizona to Vegas. The vehicle needs regular maintenance as most do but with regular upkeep, it is sure to keep going.

- Jc F

It is very dependable and no major expenditures or issues.

It has been a very dependable car. No major expenditures and I have over 80,000 miles. Only complaint is that it is a 4 cylinder and the air conditioning is not powerful for city driving and it is over 100 degrees.

- Pam M

It drives really nice. Handle the road good.

Faithful car with 200,000 miles. Only negatives is rust on the body. Great gas mileage. It works well in snow, blizzards (good tires help) and it has a good heater. Insurance is reasonable because it is a small car.

- Jim M

The driver must let the car warm up before using the air conditioning.

Overall, I like my Ford Focus. However, the sun visor fell off, along with a plastic piece on the frame of the door. The vehicle does run very hard when going over 60 mph on the freeway. Otherwise the car runs good.

- Cassandra P

Its kinda little so tall people should be careful getting in and out.

I have no real complaints about the make of my vehicle. The air conditioner is busted which will cost thousands to get fixed and it always seems like it comes out of alignment. Other than that my car is wonderful.

- Samantha T

It is great for city driving and parking

It's conveniently sized for driving around the city and finding parking. It has good pick-up and gets decent gas mileage. It's not great for carrying more than 3 people or for road trips because of limited space.

- Sarah P

It is a very sturdy car. I commute in this car daily and it a workhorse.

My Ford Focus is a very reliable car. It has limited interior space. It is hard to have child seats in the back seat and still room for a comfortable passenger. I find it to be reliable and good on gas mileage.

- Anna D

It is very safe for child and adults.

Our engine light keeps coming on and off but other then that it good on gas it is a 4 cylinder. The seats are very comfortable and a nice sized truck does not have a lot of room but it perfect for a family car.

- Anya B

It gets you from point A to point B. That's about it.

I have had problems from the start with this car. Doors not shutting all the way, the locks not working. Horrible customer service from FORD. I would never buy this car again nor would I ever buy another Ford.

- Emma W

That once it actually gets going, the ride is still as smooth as it was when new.

I like the fact that I still get decent mileage from my car. I like that it's comfortable and still does most of the things I want it to do. Unfortunately it's starting to have troubles, especially in winter.

- Brian W

It could use a better shock-absorber system as it tend to transfer every bump the car drives over to the passengers.

It's a sturdy vehicle with a lot of room inside and good trunk space. The shocks could be better as you tend to feel every little bump on the road when driving. Has good gas mileage and easy maintenance.

- Roger-Cyndy W

The rotors suck, the a/c has been fixed twice. Got new tires 3 times. It doesn't get as much gas mileage as it claims. Changed the brakes 3 times. I don't feel safe in it.

I have had nothing but issues with this car. I will not buy another Ford. If I could afford a new car now I would get one. This just gets me back and forth to work. Thank God I only work 10 miles away.

- Kim N

Love the fact that it is a smooth ride.

Absolutely love this car. Only negative I have is that the tire pressure seems to be off so the indication on dashboard stays on as well as the horn has went out. Other then that the engine is supreme.

- Angelica W

Great gas mileage. It is safe and great for a first car.

My car is durable. I have been in 2 accidents and it is held up. It also has very cheap maintenance. I have had it for about 4 years and it's been so fun to drive and easy to fix if something's wrong.

- Harley O

It gets great gas mileage, it runs well for an older car, and it's reliable.

It gets great gas mileage, it runs well for an older vehicle (knock on wood), and it is reliable. I wish it was bigger (more storage) since we have a child, but it serves it purpose for our family.

- Andrea L

My favorite basic, dependable American made car

Reliable car, never had serious issues, only regular maintenance performed, slight issue with sound coming into cabin, replacement parts are not too expensive neither is cost of working on vehicle

- Jane F

Great car for commuting to work

I really enjoy my car. It is very comfortable and has a fairly large trunk considering that it is a small car. I am started to have to make more repairs, but the costs are still quite reasonable.

- Kristin C

The engine is absolutely fantastic.

I love the engine, the car really has some "get up and go." It is also fairly low maintenance. I dislike the way the car feels when driving, though, it is rough and bumpy, rather like a go-kart.

- Megan L

I love my Ford Focus! Great, reliable car!

I love my car! I bought it new nine years ago, and I have had to do nothing to it other than routine maintenance. It has been very reliable. It gets great gas mileage and is very comfortable.

- Tracy P

It is a good car to get you to where you need to go. It may not be the most stylish but it gets the job done.

It is a good car for the year it is. I have over a hundred thousand miles on it and it is still doing good. I've only had to change the tires and oil, never had any crazy maintenance repairs.

- Angela W

The Focus is small but it is very comfortable for its size. I'm 6'1'' and I have no problems driving this car. It can fit a surprising amount of stuff in it.

Car has 175,000 miles on it and is very reliable. Gas mileage is great, only issues involve shocks/tie rods/axles (likely due to Michigan roads). Small car but comfortable, reliable, durable.

- Tom H

My car is fuel efficient and fun to drive!

I like that my car is fuel efficient. I used to drive Ford Explorers and spent a fortune on gas. Now I fill up every 3 weeks. My car is small enough to be sporty and big enough to be useful.

- Nancy S

It does not have cruise control, but gets good mileage.

It does not have cruise control. Seats 5, has great gas mileage. The speedometer goes up to 120. I have only had to replace tires and the keypad since I bought it. The seats are not heated.

- Audrey Y

The gas mileage is great.

I bought my focus for traveling cross country and it has worked beautifully. The gas mileage is the best part of the car. For being such a small car there is a lot of room to pack stuff in.
