“I love my car because … It’s  economical.  I was looking for cheap transportation to drive back and forth to work and was attracted to this little Ford Focus because of its price and excellent condition. It had been a one-owner car with only 24,000 miles on the odometer. The previous owner had used it as a tow vehicle behind his motor home. The creature comforts are limited, but it’s easy to drive and comfortable for distance and gets 38 miles per gallon. Mechanically, it’s easy to work on and simple to fix and the parts are cheap, readily available and easy to find.”
