Quick, economical, and happily eats up mile upon mile
Rear wiper washer didn't work - fixed by dealer under warranty.
Drivers side front wiper is terrible, even though it's been changed and adjusted. Smears rather than clears. Design fault?
This car is very quick considering it's only a 1.4. Feels just as powerful, if not more so, than my previous 1.6 Focus.
Steering is quick and responsive, and the car always feels nimble and glued to the road.
Comfortable and supportive seats make long journeys a pleasure.
Fuel economy is excellent. I regularly achieve 48mpg+ on longer trips, and average 39mpg in town.
The only down-sides are that I am questioning the build quality, as there are already a few squeaks and rattles, the stereo could give better sound, and road noise can be appalling depending on the surface.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
