Awful car. How this old fashioned box is rated the class leader beats me. The engine is not as powerful as it should be; there is permananet interference on the radio ehich the dealer can't cure rendering it useless; the seats are small and uncomfortable. The rear windscreen wiper has a mind of its own despite every part being replaced. The dashboard is a mess of analogue, dot matrix and LCD. Engine lacks thrust, is under-geared and I can't get 50 mpg from no matter how carefully I drive. Reverse is usually difficult to engage despite new clutch, though in my opinon it was the supposedly excellent gearbox. Changing a headlamp bulb is a major feat of engineering. Braking is inconsistent and the discs prone to pitting from rusting. Small bits of trim break and fall off. Dealer unhelpful, quoting wear and tear on a sub 10k miles car under 18 months old. Servicing expensive, with no feedback or quality assurance from dealer. Radio almost impossible to upgrade; not been able to add full iPod link. Avoid this car.

The only problem with the car has been a minor niggle with the stereo unit which continually tries to load a cd which is not there and then throws the sysem out from aux mode to radio mode. this has only recently cropped up and the dealer has the car booked in for investigation. The car manufacturer gives a figure of 62.7mpg. whilst I am realistic and dont expect the car to actually achive this, it continually returns 52.5 mpg whilst being driven into and around the city of london on a regular basis. my daily commute is a 50/50 mix of dual carriageway and city driving along the a13 from m25 boundary the into london city centre at peak periods. to achieve this mpg for this daily commute is far more than my highest expectations. a brilliant car!!!

The st170 deserves to be rated seperately to other focus'. normal focus' are quite reliable, but the st was highly tuned without the use of a turbo. this brings all kinds of problems - such as the trick vvt system leaking on a regular basis, the inlet manifold breaking and the catalytic converter being in a strange place, with a special bracket. all of the special parts mean that, when things inevitably do go wrong, they are very expensive to fix. This is a two sided question. parts shared with a normal focus are very cheap indeed. but st-specific parts are sometimes over twice the price, and often very difficult to come by. I had to wait 2 weeks for an inlet manifold to be imported from germany!

Only had one issue with the 'blind spot assist' the warning/failure light came up on the dashboard saying the right hand wasnt working, however took it back to the dealers and they said there was nothing wrong with the car and that it was an electrical fault with the system check. The economy varies massively. ford claim 56.5 average mpg but I've only ever seen 50 at best when driving economically. however use the throttle more and this takes a significant dive. the worst average I've seen from it was 26.4mpg which is absolutely appalling from a 3 cylinder.servicing costs are reasonable and ford offer comprehensive service packages on purchase.

Fantastic, done 90,000 miles, only had leaking thermostat housing and thats all thats gone wrong, yes in 7 years! but I think the dmf and pressure plate/clutch is on the way out as its becoming more difficult to select gear. Best thing about my car! if I drove it like I stole it I still get 55mpg if I eco drive to and from work )32 miles each way) I can get over 80 mpg !!!! For a 1.6 diesel its goes very well, 50mph-80mph in 4th gear is suprisingly quick, also 2nd gear punch is brilliant for over taking tractors lorrys on rurual roads. seeing as the focus weighs 1400 kgs I am very happy!

1.8 petrol zetec, nicley specced. A little bouncy on rougher roads, not a mjor issue though. I chose 1.8 over 1.6 because of extra power and ford dealer had knocked £1700 off the price, was a bargain. I get 34mpg on average and that includes daily motorway commute at 70 mph maximum. Is fun to drive just not the most interesting to look at and it a common car on the road. I may purchase a diesel one in the future. Only major gripe is that the driver and passenger seat fabric is baggy, not sure why(am not overweight or anything).

This is my second focus, same engine, similar model. no major problems have occurred, but the gear lever return spring sheered off in this model. in the previous model, the heat shield fell off and the steering was beginning to creek badly at 65,000 miles. It doesn't match up to manufacturer mpg claims, as expected. it's not terrible but it isn't great either. older tech engine means a relatively pricey tax disc. overall, costs are manageable.

I've only owned the car since june, but it' as good as my other fords I've owned. I've picked an econetic model, with a smaller engine, ( went from 2lt in my last car to a 1.6lt). the economy is much better, but I want to achieve near the advertised mpg. the stop start is good and other eco measures work well but need to more to improve economy. Considering its eco measures I'm not expecting blistering performance

Excellent. never let me down! I only use main dealers. ford has introduced a "value service" for ł99, to tempt owners who have gone outside the warranty period back into the main dealerships. excellent. I quizzed the 2 main dealers near me, to see if "substandard" parts/oil were used. no. it's all good. genuine parts, and quality oil. can't go wrong for ł99, and I get a main dealer stamp in the service booklet.

This is the first car that I've enjoyed driving since my last Morris 1000. It's well-designed and well-made, and it just feels right. And you can trust it--I don't begrudge a car a new clutch at 120,000 miles, and I knew it was going for ages before I got around to replacing it. But the car never let me down. It's as steady on the motorway as much bigger cars, like the Peugot 406 I last owned.

In terms of driving experience, its a lot of car for th money. Handling is great and getting up to 60mpg is superb for a retired person living on a pension. I find the seat supports my back well on long journies and its ability to cruise at 70mph on motorways still with economy is all I could ask. For the money, (particularly second hand!), its a hell of a lot of metal!

Car has run fine between mots and services and has required relatively little work at service time. all mots have been passed without issue. All costs are considered reasonable - whilst car is 10 years old co2 emissions stil compare well to new cars (159g/km) and the car remains economical with average 39mpg on a fairly low mileage that includes a lot of short journeys.

Over the 103,000 miles that I have done so far in it I have had no problems at all. Cost of maintenance has been approximately the same as other cars I have had in the past, not overly expensive.

Ford is one of the worst CO2 liars in the marketplace. I maintain fuel consumption statistics religiously, and this car is 20% better than my previous car on paper, but probably less than 10% in real life.

Its exactly what I'd expect from a new car. Ford advertises and badges this as an econetic model, capable of 63mpg plus. I've only managed to achieve 55mpg.
