Offers nice handling and a tight ride
I have not had any problems with the Focus.
The only nuisance is that I have to pull pretty hard on the door handle when I want to unlatch the door.
Overall, I really like the car. It has a peppy little motor, handles very well, and what I like most is the tightness of the car and the handling. The interior is comfortable, and I feel the materials fit/finish is above average. My car is pretty much loaded with options and I am happy that it's loaded; the traction control, 16 inch sport wheels, and sunroof add a lot to the car. My only criticism is rear visibility, but I have noticed that most newer cars seem to have poor rear visibility.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
