2000 Ford Focus LX 1.6 petrol from UK and Ireland
Twice as satisfying as a VW
Driver's remote centrol locking failed.
Windscreen wiper judders.
Tiny amount of rust on one rear door.
Cheap as chips to buy and run.
Nearly as economical as most diesels.
Handles well for a family car.
Dealers polite, helpful. If only they were cheap.
If you're prepared to put up with the "cheaper" feel of the interior and just how common these cars are - they really are common sense vehicles to own.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
