Overall Average Rating: 85.75%
Position in the Top 100 cars: 43rd
All things considered, these are disappointing results for the nation’s best-selling compact family car.
Having finished 19th just two years ago, the Focus’s slide down the Driver Power 100 will give bosses serious cause for concern.
Despite posting great results for ride and handling, the Focus suffers in running costs, reliability and general build quality.
Manufacturer Verdict (Position: 21st)
Having made progress in 2008, Ford has dropped back again this year. It’s 12 places higher than rival Vauxhall, and its cars are rated for practicality and handling. Yet owners’ main gripe is reliability.
