I myself own both a focus and a mazda 3. to me the mazda has more power stock and has a better interior. BUT the focus handles better, looks a littzle better. their both good cars in their OWN WAY. my focus I believe was a lemon and I put in to much to keep it on the road wich convinced me to get the mazda and since I rebuilt and boosted the focus. but this is my third focus ive owned. love the cars. such great handling and pep to them and style is of great quality. focus fanatic at heart for sure. haven't had one problem with my mazda in the three years ive owned it. just normal wear and tear. i.e breaks and belts.
