Checks all my boxes

Reviewed by Rexaplenty
July 06, 2015

The Ford Focus ST I purchased at AutoNation Katy checks all the boxes I was wanting for a car. It is practical, yet it performs well. I'm running regular gas in this car (I only buy from majors - Shell, Exxon, Chevron etc.). I really like the feature that allows me to quickly determine which station in the area has the best price. The engine is still getting broke in - I'm getting a little over 21 mpg and expect that it will improve marginally. The car runs like it has a turbo button. I like high-performance cars, but I realize that this car is not a high performance car (like a Shelby Cobra or Corvette, for instance), but it has more than enough power and handling to hold its own on the highway. The interior is well appointed but a little stiff. I drove my Mustang Cobra for 12 years, so I expect I will get used to it as I drive. The Sony sound system is great, the Sirrius XM 5 year subscription is also good. Being as I am a commuter (about 50 miles/day), I also greatly appreciate the traffic reports, as they allow me to plan my commute a little more effectively. Ford Sync is also a great feature, the hands-free does not work as well as I want it to sometimes, but it is a great feature As far as reliability, I don't know how reliable this car will be as I have only put around 1300 miles on it. The warranty (36,000 bumper to bumper, 50,000 engine and drivetrain and 50,000 towing) is also a good feature (and one I hope I do not have to use). Lastly, I noted on my window sticker that this car also is one of the top safety picks, which is always a good thing if you're driving a small car - you want to be protected in the event you have an accident. I think the Focus ST is a great handling and good performing car that gets great gas mileage and is appointed nicely. I think this car was a great value for me, but I will need to see how the car holds up (20-30,000 miles) before I could give it the 5th star for reliability.

I have the ST3 with the wheels upgrade in Performance Blue. I love the look of the car inside and out. I have driven conservatively for the first 2K miles, but have now had a chance to romp on it a bit. Yes, torque steer, and they warn you about that, but it does like to move. Corners are fun as it sticks as good or better than my Subaru Impreza GT and rides flatter thru the turns. The RECARO seats really help keep you planted. It has a good sound system, the Sync is ok, a bit talkative for when it doesn't understand, but it works. I didn't have time to wait for the RS in 2016.

Focus st

The body is nice and it's comfortable. Not turbo lag but doesn't get traction and isn't that fast for a turbo car. If your looking for a car to keep stock this is might be the car to get. If your looking to mod it you will be very disappointed cause unless you up grade the turbo you won't gain much of anything. Then again if you upgrade the turbo then what is the point in getting a turbo car when any car can have a turbo put into it.

This is a working mans mustang and it fits a baby seat in the back. If you drive conservative its just a regular focus but if you step on it you'll get around a big rig in no time on the highway and it sounds great while your doing it. Big smiles all round.
