It is very poor car, drinking engine oil all the time. I have to top up every 500 miles. I will never ever buy Ford car again… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/12/2010 by angie K (1 review written)

I am very pleased with this car. I previously owned a focus zetec 1.6 for 10 years which was very reliable but was getting a bit long in the tooth.
The ghia is smoother at higher speeds but I prefer the longer 1st gear on the zetec. The ghia is well equipped and costs less on road tax (lower emmissions) The only big gripe I have is the fuel comsuption, no matter where
I am driving in town or on the motorway the computer always hovers around
30 mpg average. I don't think this is very good!! It… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/12/2010

Bought my Ghia from a dealer in July this year and I LOVE it - it's such a comfortable car, almost everyone I've had on board has commented on this too. Have had to replace bushings prior to MOT as they were cracked but other than this, have had no issues whatsoever... hope the problem-free spell continues. Since buying, three of my mates have bought a Focus! So would definately recommend. What a fab car :)… Read Full Review

“This is the wifes car, not mine. I drive it only on...”

Written on: 25/11/2008

This is the wifes car, not mine. I drive it only on occasion, and I find it a good car over all. She's had the car from new (2002) and the only repair has been a steering rack that developed a leak a couple of years back (just out of warrenty, typical!).
The only real critisism I have is boot access. Who the hell designed the opening?! There are 2 panel's that cut the opening appature down either side of the car. Why? I can only presume it's for strength, however a work colleague has the estate… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/08/2008

My parents bought a Ford Focus two years ago and my, is it a good car. The 1.6 litre petrol engine isn't what I'd call truly fast, but it certainly is no slouch either, and it pulls nicely through all gears. Makes a very satisfying growl as well. Speaking of gears, the fifth one leaves something to be desired. At speeds under 100km/h, everything's fine. But when you hit the highway speed of 120km/h, the rev counter should show around 3000RPM, which isn't catashtrophic but it could sting your… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/10/2007 by Natalie Basanta (1 review written)

I am satisfied with the purchase of this particular vehicle. Drives really well and does long distances reliably. It's a comfortable car inside. On the downside, however, some parts of the interior wears away quite easily. Sun Visors the plastic hold parts basically fall apart with just taking a little sun. The steering wheel also melts with a little heat from the sun. My seat warmers could work better - it's very weak… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/11/2006 by kosmo (7 reviews written)

Love the looks and enjoy driving it. I drove my Ford Focus 1.6 Ghia 5dr for 14 hours without stop once and never felt tired. I have the Ghia version with all the extras and the accessories I have are simply spoiling me.

One drawback is the fuel consumption. Never managed to go under 8 Lt/100km even at low speed on highway cruise. My 2.0 Lt. Opel Vectra Automatic can live on 6,5 Lt/100km under similar conditions. The gearbox kicks down unnecessarily early, causing the engine to rev very… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/12/2001 by GV. (1 review written)

I brought the car in 1999 and have loved it since. This is the Ghia version ( 1.6). Having driven the Golf, I think that time will show the Focus will prove to be a superior car. It has lost none of it's driveability and still feels like new. Yes, I have serviced it regularly. I have also driven other cars ( Mercedes C Class and Audi A3) and have found them poor in comparison. The test drives were with a need to upgrade but I think Focus drivers will be hard driven to find a better car. Superb… Read Full Review
