Nothing wrong with the focus following the escort. Can you look back on the cavailer and the neon and see a all wheel drive turbo bass in it. I think not.

This person ruined a few nice pieces... The bumper appears to have some sort of lip or splitter on it.

My focus is currently waiting on it's third engine. My wife has owned both the 2.2 and the 2.4 cavaliers, the 2.4 was on it third engine aswell. I can tell you the focus is a dream when it comes to reliabilty next either of those. We traded her 2.4 in on the focus they gave us $700 for it. They had it for sale the next day for $700 as is. They only think that worked correctly on it was the alternator. I would drop 1600 a year into it, any one who knows me or have seen they way I took care of the spi would tell you I do more than regular maintentance. No matter how much work I put into it I could never make a dent in the issues it had. I even took it to a mechanic it took him three months to fix it you can ask my wife. When the abs wnet out twice in a year not allowing the car to stop on dry pavement we decided it was done.

They are good cars, but I don't see the point in bashing other brands. You know: Dart is a Neon, and the like. The Focus cannot compare to a lot that has been mentioned it the past 10 or 15 posts, but who cares?

That car is the failure of the Focus community. The last pic I saw of it, it had kaminari sideskirts painted orange and an orange interior. Every community has spectacular fails, this is ours
