Liked everything there's nothing I don't like about it it is the special edition sport loaded with accessories built in sub woofer leather seating and 5 speed manual transmission. Excellent in the snow power windows and a exodus to systome sounds great

I like the gas mileage, but once one little thing went wrong it started to be a money pit. Great if you do a lot of stop and go. I had it serviced every 3 months so I don't see why it broke down so fast.
Utility, price, size, MPG. I wish that Ford made a Focus SW again. 2007 was the last year. Why? i'll never know. My car is not garaged, and yet it still sparkles after the car wash. I'm thinking of changing the original plugs and battery some day soon out of guilt!
This was purchased brand new for my wife on her birthday back in 2000. Because of the four transmission failures and continuing transmission "glitches" we haven't taken the car on trips of more than 100 miles or so since 2004, so it has less than 64,000 miles on the odometer. Putting a review on a 14 year old car might be a waste of my time, but hey, if you find one cheap (and at 14 years, they are now cheap) make darn sure the transmission shifts good! For peace of mind have a AAA membership or another towing service in case it dies, we have Good Samaritan Club from Camping World since we have an RV. The greatest thing about having Good Sam or AAA is when your car dies in the middle of nowhere there is no feeling of panic when you have a person to talk to who will summon help and call you back to make sure you are being taken care of. We like Good Sam because they will tow you an unlimited distance to a location that can service your vehicle's problem. Like the time my truck broke down at 10,000 feet in the mountains of Colorado...
I swore I would never have another I swore I would never have another Ford after dealing with the Taurus from h--l, but this car has surprised me. I bought mine new in 2007 in Arizona and had problems with the cooling system and the air conditioning. It now has 133,000 miles on it and I am passing it on to my daughter with full confidence that she is driving a safe car. We recently took a 6,000 mile trip and there were no problems except for a cracked radiator hose when I arrived home.
