It's not the best little car in world but it's fun to drive and it's got some kind of charm to it. Maybe I have an underdog syndrome or something. I can't think of another car in this price range that would really appeal to me. Everything else either feels over done or uninspired. There's just something about a focus. What is it?
I like mine because it's by an American company, assembled in Michican, and doesn't take a back seat to anything in its class. It's more inspired, fun to drive, and it's a car for which I don't mind spending money on preventative maintenance, because I actually want to be driving it in ten years.

I can't say that about any other car I've driven...I knew I would eventually tire of them. Not this one.

cbr1100xx I don't know. I just really like my '10. Put a Steeda shifter in there and SVT springs/shocks and for 12,400 (w/just under 22K mi when I got it)'s a lot of fun for not much money. And it's comfortable and has everything I need. And it's American. :)

UnbridledCarnage first was an 07 sedan and 2nd is my 03 zx3

i love people asking me "why" why mod a focus? its a grocery getter, its a family car, its a "girls car" (no offense ladies) you dont see them every day modded, and NO ONE expects ANYTHING it does! thats why i love it!

04SVTZX5 I had a 2000 SE (1st Focus) Great car.
2nd Focus is a 2002 ZX5. Still have it 200K miles. SVT susp/wheels
3rd Focus was a 2004 SVT ZX5. Should of kept that one. Blue
4th Focus is 2011 SES. Wife's car. Great ride. Blue
5th Focus is a 2013 ST. Black. Oh what a ride. Its awesome.

I am a diehard Ford guy and have had great luck with My Focus vehicles.
Also a Cobra and Lightning guy too. Cobras-93,93R,95R,03,04. Lightnings 95,00,04.
My next ride will be either a LS Boss or GT500 next year. Have not decided yet.

RedComet All really good cars have an ineffable quality to them that makes their owners love them and appreciate what they do, even when there are other cars (maybe even for not a whole lot more money) that flatly outclass them.

My 2012 SE Focus is fun to drive, reasonably quick for what I paid for it and its size, comfortable, and stylish. It definitely doesn't blend in, and it isn't a 'motoring appliance'. You just don't get that joie de vive and driving experience out of a new car these days for that kind of money, in a car I can still fit music equipment, groceries, and road trip stuff in easily.

these are why i got it. I wanted a hactchback, and I didnt want to be like the millions of golfs and civics out there.

plus it helps that there were $5500 is factory incentives at the time (i bought an 04 after the 05s came out and they were trying to clear stock)

Focusblackzx5 Had a 2003 sedan SE (2011-2012) first car
Now a 2005 zx5 SES (2012-????) second car
want a 2010 Coup SES (in 5-6 years maybe :P)

I love this car, the hatch trim is unique (00-07). Matrix, Vibe, Astra, all look the same,boring to drive, but the Focus is different, sportier looking and so much fun to drive !
