It is very practical
So far not too many thing have gone wrong. I do have a leak in the right wheel well, but that only happens when it rains very hard.
Other than that the rest was just been general maintenance.
My 2001 Ford Focus has been a great car even though it does not really fit me. I am a big guy (bout 6'2" and 250lbs) but I still fit in the car just fine.
The seats are very comfortable over long distances, I have to drive a lot for work and school that means 12 hour trips every couple of weekends.
The car is zippy, but not fast. The handling is great I really enjoy pushing it in the turns.
Over all I really enjoy the car and I think it does what it is made to do very well.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
