Why the 2007 Ford Focus?

Handling

I always liked how Focus rentals handled and this one was even better.

Powertrain performance

Not so much raw performance, but more the torquey character of the motor and the exhaust note. It's an engine & gearbox that you can rev out or just putter around short shifting and it handles both equally well.

Fuel economy

Mileage isn't that great for a car its size (28-30 mpg highway), but it's still pretty good in the scheme of things. Also helps that it works fine w/ 87 octane fuel.

Brand reputation & image

I've always liked Fords better than most other brands, and this was actually the first Ford I've owned.

Why Not the 2007 Ford Focus?

Front seat room

Another two inches of legroom sure would be nice.

Quietness

Definitely a bit noisy. Partly due to the exhaust (no muffler from the factory), part just general lack of soundproofing.

Rear seat room & comfort

Very average for its class. Not a place for grownups for long.

Color choices

Only four color choices is a little skimpy. Black, gray, silver & bright red. Boring. No blue? No white, no green or yellow? C'mon.
