$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.

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.

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.

The Focus SVT would have cost me about $5,000 more than the Mazda Protege5.
