i get around just fine in the snow with my focus and it a manual transmition

Only problems I've had were a broken passenger side mirror (thanks to an in a truck who can't watch where he's going when he pulls out of parallel parking), a transmission solenoid A, a bad wheel bearing, and a loose heat shield. BTW...my car is an '03 ZX3 with just over 86k on it.

The only problem I have with my Focus currently is the windshield sounds like it is whistling (like it was replaced and they didnt seal it properly) and it idles high. I will be stopped at a stop light and it will sound like im reving the engine. nothing serious yet (knock on wood). Its a much better purchase than the piece of crap dodge neon i used to have
