    "Great family car"



    We have a 58 plate petrol Style model. I enjoy driving it, it's easy enough to park and I find that it handles well. Easily enough space for two adults and two DC in car seats, although we couldn't fit a third passenger in the back with or without a car seat (I've tried). Loads of boot space to fit a folded pushchair (Bee+), a weekly food shop and an assortment of junk. Leg room is fairly decent for both front and rear passengers. A tank of petrol gets me about 340 miles driving around town with a few longer drives mixed in.

    The interior is fairly basic but I'm not too fussed about that. I've managed to break the radio somehow so need to get that looked at.

    "Very reliable - keeps going and going"



    We have had our Ford Focus for many years now, and it's very reliable - done 120,000 miles so far and still going strong. It's perfectly comfortable to drive. Everyone said when DD1 came along that we'd need a bigger car - nope. Then they said the same when DD2 came - nope, still happy with the Focus. We use a roof box once or twice a year, but the rest of the time the boot is absolutely fine for shopping, a pushchair etc.
