What Our Members Are Saying about the Price of the the Ford Focus

Price of the Ford Focus: Pros
20094dr Sedan 140-horsepower 2.0L I4
5-speed manual FWD
The Focus is one of the cheapest new cars. There are others that are cheaper, but they basically come stripped of options like AC and radios.
20094dr Sedan 140-horsepower 2.0L I4
5-speed manual FWD
It gave me the payment i needed while still providing most of the things i need in a small sedan.
20094dr Sedan 140-horsepower 2.0L I4
5-speed manual FWD
$16,700 is quite a bit of money for a two-liter four sedan, but the Focus has build quality and content that justify it pretty well.
20094dr Sedan 140-horsepower 2.0L I4
5-speed manual FWD
Bought used 19k miles, good condition, $9,500
20082dr Coupe 140-horsepower 2.0L I4
5-speed manual FWD
Price was so low it was almost a concern.
Price of the Ford Focus: Cons
20074dr Sedan 136-horsepower 2.0L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
What can I say, it's a cheap car. At the time I purchased in 2009, the car was almost three years old and still had a sale price of $13000. It's currently only worth less than half of what was paid four years later. I purchased this car because of need and very limited time to make a choice. I knew I didn't want another Nissan because of their weak engines. My sister had just bought the 08 Focus SE model a few months before and was happy with hers, so I thought this might be an okay choice. Read on.
20034dr Hatch 170-horsepower 2.0L I4
6-speed manual FWD
The Focus SVT would have cost me about $5,000 more than the Mazda Protege5.
