How reliable is the Focus compared to a Honda Civic (not the SI)?
I've always been interested in getting a Honda Civic but I've been looking for months now for a used one but can't find any I like. Too much opitons, too much mileage, too little options... ugh. And the newer models are just out of my price range except for the base model which has like no options..
Anyway.. been offered a 2005 Focus for $9,500 because I knew someone who knew the dealer really well. I'm not really into ford though. The Focus doesn't look like a bad car..Looks like it gets as good gas mileage as the Civics. But I asked around and I keep getting told the Focuses are pos..lemon: and people having transmission and brake problems within a year..and other stupid little things that keep going wrong..
I don't want to get in debt over the Civic, but I also don't want to buy a car I can afford and have to fix it all the time anyway costing as much as a new Civic...
