Overall reliability

Relaible and pleasant to live with

I´m a proud owner of a 1,4 LX focus. In spite of all car magazines pointed this version as slow at low revs due to high weight and "best avoid", I can assure that it is quite reliable and fun to drive and at the motorway if I can step on it, is isn´t so slow and gives me good perfomance. Ergonomics are perfect and driving position good. Till now I never had problems. The car is been assisted at Ford dealers. Every time I sit on it I fell a sensation of soundness and comfort. Yes, it´s a little bit slow at starts but develops quite good when I reached a certain speed. It´s that kind of car you can depend on. Overall quality is fine and style stills modern and attractive after all these years, never boring. Major poinst are: stability, build quality, reliablity, brakes, gerabox, comfort and always actual design. On the other hand, suspention is on the steady side and sometimes (on B roads) not comfortable and fuel consumption can be a little bit high on traffic jams. I highly advice this car to anyone.
