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.

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
20084dr Sedan 140-horsepower 2.0L I4
5-speed manual FWD
Cheaper, with better standard features, than any competitors (Yaris, Honda Fit, Hyundai Accent).
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.
