2012 FORD FOCUS
I bought this car because I needed a cheap car for various reasons. I'm a life-long Ford owner, and had great experiences with the Escort years ago. DON'T BUY THIS CAR. It has massive transmission problems and is put together cheaply. I expected better out of Ford. i only rated it with one star because it wouldn't let me submit the review without at least one star chosen.

2012 FORD FOCUS
Pros: Acceleration, gas saver, fun to drive. I drove 280 miles in highway with 8 gallons.
Cons: Hard seats. Transmission hesitate so it feels like failing.
