It's a waste of money! If you even knew what power is you should buy a XR6T.
40K for a 4 cylinder turbo charged hatch is a major rip off. Your car produces less than 120KW how is that power? What you drive is a Thailand made vacuum cleaner not a car!

BEST CAR I HAVE BOUGHT!!!!

published

This car is FANTASTIC ! I was looking for a roomy hatch with heaps of luggage space and something reliable & economical.....the Focus is perfect, have had the usual guff from mechanics about 'weird and wonderful' things they they're all well known for that will need to be replaced but it was a load of BS, honestly if your looking for the same thing this is the car for you! GERMAN built so they're well designed and reliable!
roomy, heaps of luggage space, economical, nippy when you boot it !
parts being expensive, not so nippy & economical when the a/c is on

Reliable and Comfortable

published

We have a 2006 Sedan, which has now lasted us 6 years. We have never had any problems with it and it has proven to be incredibly reliable . Since having a baby, we have found it still provides us enough room for weekend trips away without being uncomfortable. It is great on the highway, and cruise maintains speed really well. Around town we find it is small enough to be zippy, but still spacious that the back seats aren't a waste.
Reliable, great around town and on the highway. Plenty of room even though its a small car
Irritating beeping noise while reversing

Turbo diesel is a winner

published

The issue of petrol pricing has forever gone from my mind. This is the most powerful and fuel efficient hatch I've driven. I've never had a problem with it and my fuel costs are down 90%.
the turbo gives you all the power you need - its also 5 star ancap , sticks to the road like glue and a steal at around 20,000 AU
Fuel efficiency, road handling, sony sound system
Lots of glass which means gets very hot in summer and very cold in winter !

Lived up to expectations!

Was looking at the corolla, i30, mazda 3, golf, cruze, and the focus was just the obvious choice! absolutely love it! it is amazing to drive, very zippy, easy to park, and just goes. pretty powerful for a 1.6L engine, and i LOVE the audio system, the other cars could not compete with this exceptional audio system!
Really efficient on petrol, full tank goes 700km, the audio system is amazing, and travels so smoothly

Just got it and love it

Just bought a 2007 model, first registered in 2008, and couldn't be happier. What a terrific car, down to the leather interior, terrific hard top, 6 stacker cd player, heated seats, rear view mirror that adjusts according to following vehicles lights, rain censored wipers, electric seat adjustment, huge boot space even with the roof down, cruise control, audio adjustment on steering wheel, etc.
Just about everything, it is a terrific car.
Just a little underpowered for a 2L car, but at least it will be harder to speed.

I love this car. It is great to drive and easy to park. It's fuel economy is pretty good. It looks stylish too. It does get a bit small when you try to fit baby seats in the rear though. We have not have any problems with this car and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a small to med sized car. It's safety features are also very good.
This is a great car. It compact but has great safety features also. Pretty good price too.
The back seat is a bit small when you try to fit a couple of kids in.

Wonderful, sporty good looking car. Better value than most of it's competitors ie. Holden Astra Turbo, Subaru WRX, great handling and sweet ride and the color choices are hot. A great car for the driving fans and you will see it is a good car if you judge it on it's merits and ignore the Ford haters.
Focus XR5 Turbo: great power,superb and smooth handling, very sporty ride, awesome styling and body kit, good set of features above Zetec model, nice supportive Recaro seats, good premium sound system, not expensive in comparison to it's competition, nice slick 6 speed gear box
turbo insurance premium

I love it and dream about upgrading one day to an XR5!! Simply fabulous value for money and cute to boot. Having soo much room in the boot is excellent to
I love my focus. Its nippy and not too big but fits my 2 toddlers in just fine with big ass stroller room in the boot. Great petrol onsumpt. Mine is 3 yeas old and hasnt missed a beat. I simply cant ccomplain about reliability
the lack of console between seats and its a bit plasticy but you get what you pay for. Definately go for the smooth pack though with wheels rims and paower windows etc.

We bought a 2009 Focus hatch. It's lovely to drive. It has enough leg room in the back and front. A little squeezy in the back with a child car seat in the middle, but 2 people can squash in. We like the placement of things on the dashboard.
Great car to drive & comfortable. Feel like I'm sitting up higher than my older car. Back seats fold down flat and the boot is bigger than the other cars we test drove. Only have to have it serviced once a year. We can plug the ipod in.

Overall a great car would look at buying new version provided that the quality has picked up on this current model.
Focus XR5 Turbo: Power, style/looks, driving experience and cost
No cruise control or bluetooth and build quality in some areas namely paint and general finish.

The Ford Focus is a very nice looking motor car. It drives well and is appointed with practical and easy to use features. I would reccommend the Focus to anyone.
Bought a Focus LX model in 2006. Looks great, value for money. Has all the features you really need. Has a really big boot.
Every time you turn the ignition to "on", 6 warning beeps sound...very annoying, and the worst thing is that it cannot be dissabled.

Focus LW Mk1 (2011-2012)

anyone had issues with this model? looking to buy one as long as it's not a lemon ,and it is manual

Hi Peter, I probably can't make a comment on a manual MK1 but trust me if you think of buying an auto, my advise would be to RUN as fast as you can away from it. I have had nothing but trouble with the gearbox in mine and have just had it fixed for the 9th time, so fingers crossed they got it this time. Good luck but buy another brand.

Do you mean 19? IF IT IS the current model there are buttons between the temp dials for upper and lower air con outlets. Press for on or off.
