I have a 2005 focus se and just went through 3 blizzards with this car. I am so impressed with the way it handled. I drove past other makes of cars and even a huge plow truck that ran off the road and kept on going. i feel as though i am pretty good driving in the snow, but it takes a good car to get you there.
the only place i got stuck was at the end of my driveway that had been plowed in. I just cannot explain how impressed I am. I wish I could afford to buy a new focus. My son is 17 and loves my “go cart” as he calls it. I have only ever had fords from a maverick, granada, thunderbird, contour and focus. All i can say is who needs an suv.
