I can't imagine there being a better car for the money.
I've kept up with the scheduled maintenance and change the oil every 5000 miles.
I put front brakes on at 35000 and new tires at 45000 (still had tread, but I wanted new tires before winter). I got Yokohama's and I love them.
I love this car more than I thought I would. I had not planned on buying a Focus, but it was 3000 dollars under sticker price, so I did.
I still get between 30 and 35 mpg.
The only bad thing I can say is the car loses a lot of power when the AC is on. I think that's pretty much any four cylinder car though.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
