The reliability of the car? Thanks so much in advance!!
If you want a car that you can upgrade HP, get the 2.3L, if you want good gas mileage and less HP, get a 2.0

Since you're buying used, try to look for one with under 50k miles so you can can get some lifespan out of it.

Manual trannys are more fun and put more HP to the road than automatics, so I'd recommend getting a stick. Less to go wrong too.

The fOCUS is probably not as reliable as the honda civic, but way cooler and faster
