I've had a new Ford Focus 1.6LX for almost 3 years and 49000 miles. I imported it from http://www.ford-delta.com for a bit under £10,000, including the Reflex and Climate options packs. I went for the 1.6 instead of the 1.8 because it was about £250 cheaper. It's got an aluminium block which means it ends up being about 40kg lighter. This translates into better handling and fuel economy (1.5mpg or so). You lose about a second of the 0-60 time, but you gain in smoothness - the torque curve of the 1.8 has a flat spot about 3500rpm. The 1.6 engine was designed by Yamaha whilst the 1.8 is derived from the old Ford engines (from the Sierra?). The 1.6 revs ... Read the complete review

Well at long last, I have returned to using a Ford Focus. After using a Fiesta Fusion for the last year which my wife and I found annoying; we knew it was time to return to the good times. After crunching my last Focus which was the only reason we changed it, we bought the Fusion for My wife's ease of a smaller car. The other Focus was an estate but a great car and had I had time I would have repaired it myself with the right tooling. The Fusion was a let-down with its semi-automatic drive gearbox which appeared temperamental at times when standing at junctions. But forget about the past, we now have this 1.6LX Auto which I get on better with than the ... Read the complete review

I have just reached my six month anniversary with my Ford Focus. I write this opinion in celebration for it has been a happy relationship. I was a little worried at the start because I began this affair of the heart while on the rebound from a Nissan Primera. (I still cannot believe how a car can be so spiteful and cause so much pain.) I just didn't want to be hurt again. I was first attracted to my Focus because of her looks. Being an estate she had a fuller figure than most, but she looked so young and pretty with her cute triangles and graceful arcs. As I held her gently by the wheel and gazed upon her instruments, I could see the quality of her design in ... Read the complete review

Ford's latest family car is very in-Focus indeed! My opinion is based over a very extensive drive over a weekend's car hire. We travelled through all types of road conditions - motorway (straight), town (urban), country (twisty & bumpy) etc. It was a pleasure to drive, very comfortable both as a driver and both rear and front passenger. The layout of the controls were excellent. All the controls were within quick and easy reach, best described as very ergodynamic (whatever that means!). It's handling across town, motorway, country lanes was superb. You could read a paper going through very bumpy country lanes without getting sick - it was that good! The Focus's looks Read the complete review

Five months previous i purchased my first ford focus. I was a previous ford owner having owned a number of ford fiestas dating back to models from the 1980s, my previous being a 2006 model so i was all ready pretty impressed by the ford name. However since my purchase i have been even more impressed by my 51 plate focus. Its nippy, which in fairness being a diesel engine is quite impressive as often diesel engine cars can take a while to get going, it looks good and is a comfortable drive. It has a rather deceiving amount of boot space which looking at the picture above may be considered small but does carry a suprising amount of storage. On the negative side being a ...
