I bought a 1999 's' Registered ford focus back in 2008 off my (ex) partner who had upgraded to a newer model. I'd had a number of years experience as a passenger in the vehicle, and occasional driver but never really had a chance to put it through it's paces. Ford released the first Focus in 1998 to much acclaim, the styling both inside and out made it quickly become the best selling car in Europe. Certainly the inside of the car was revolutionary for the year and price bracket and the smooth curves and slopes made it appeal to drivers of all ages. It came with a variety engines and various styles on top of that. The petrol engine sizes were 1.4, 1.6, 1.8, ... Read the complete review

Ford Focus 1.8 Zetec has to be one of the most reliable cars out there in the market today. Having owned my Focus for over three years it has only played up on me once, but soldiered on and got me home nevertheless (all will become apparent later :-) The servicing costs are relatively cheap, or as cheap as they can physically be for a car due in part to the high numbers of these cars on the road. Spares for indicators etc are extremley easy to come by, I recommend taking a trip to your local scrap yard where I promise you there will be some ford Focus's. The only problem the car has given me, and the only extra cost apart from the annual ... Read the complete review

I own a 2002 1.6 Zetec. I have had this for 3 years and it has served me well. It is a rather dull car in all honesty, but it's reliability and comfort really makes it the type of car I would probably get again in the future, subject to me winning the lottery and buying an Impreza. The handling is really smooth and with Hancook tyres it grips the road in everything apart from snow. I drive it 50 odd miles a day, along windy country roads. The 1.6 is not enough to be able to hurtle past anyone and everyone, but when you do encounter the inevitable cautious driver doing 40mph, slipping it into 3rd and flooring it can easily get you by. The acceleration in ... Read the complete review

I'm currently driving a Ford Focus Zetec 1.6 Petrol. It's a great car! The car is now 9 years old but is in great nick, it has certainly lasted well but hasn't had much use over the period. The usual suspects are starting to appear, a little rust on the bottom of one of the back doors and a little rust on the inside of the bootlid. Apart from that though, it is lasting amazingly well. The handling of this car is great, for a bog standard not really sports orientate hatchback. The chassis copes with most fast driving situation on the road, wouldn't be anywhere near useful on a track though, just trying to give some perspective on road driving. The suspension is ...
