I've rented the ford-focus a couple of times while in US.. The car is fast and steady.. But nowhere as close as the Toyota corolla and the Honda Civic.. Infact the best car i drove in the US was the mitsubishi Mirage..

Ford focus also consumes more fuel per mile than the japanese cars.. Performance is good.. But breaks down far too often.. Reliability is a big suspect from Ford..

I wouldn't drive any ford other than the Mustangs..

Cheers,
Manish.

Any clue whatever happened to the Ford Focus - Sedan and Hatchback? It was to be released in India (AFAIK) ~2 years ago and it still isn't here! The Focus is a runaway hit across the world. Wonder why Ford is delaying the launch in India?
