ITT: We post our boring, reliable, economical, daily drivers + We say one good/one bad thing about them.

>2013 Focus sedan
>auto slushbox is 'nice' for Houston clusterfuck traffic
>it has less power than a tiny little hatchback and has a 0-60 time of 'eventually'
Nice. '13 Focus sedan too, but with a 5-speed.
'09 Focus 5spd
>gud - mpg
>bad - could use another 100hp
i get 29 city / 41 hwy, how much you get?
Nice! This was my first Auto, always been against them as 'lazy' etc etc.

But after driving in London rush hour for years in a manual, then Houston rush hour in a manual, I was ready to be able to drive home with one finger and one toe.

When I find myself on a windy road while out for lunch? I regret the auto.

When I'm driving home at 11pm and I can hardly stay away, and it's stop and go traffic?? God fucking damn I LOVE that auto.

Plus it makes hauling ass in a manual all the more enjoyable.
I'm jealous of you guys. I didn't properly think of shit and went with a "fuck it do it all" hot hatch as my dd and fun car. I should have gone cheap shit box for dd and less cheap shit box for fun. I get 26ish highway and pay 40 a fill up with 93 (hurray turbos).

I almost made the same mistake, it was my need for a Auto that saved me.

Nice, the fiesta is a little too small for me tho. I'm 6ft and the focus is about as small as I can go.

Now that's what this tread is about son, cheap and reliable!

Right around 40 mpg, it takes forever to run out of gas. Actually just made an 1800 mile trip across the country in it last month and squeezed 400 miles out of every tank. I hate the wheels though, they came on the car when I bought it. Previous owner had awful taste in aftermarket products

forgot to add

-it's pretty cheap to own. much cheaper than my old bmw or audi.
-mine's a very nice color. i like it, atleast.
-midengine layout makes it interesting
-has a fuckload of trunkspace with the 2 combines

-interior is fucking cramped
-its not short people friendly, or tall people friendly. I'm kinda short, so i have to have the seat fairly forwards and it makes stepping in and stepping out a fucking nightmare. (this is honestly what annoys me the most)
-no aux from factory ofc but i can add it with a cable.
-rear plastic window in soft top is yellowed.
-my car alog with the 996 is known to grade its engine because of the IMS issue. especially lower mileage cars. like mine.
-stock exhaust is too quiet, cutting the muffler out makes it too loud.
-stereo sounds like fucking SHIT because there are only speakers infront of you, and not a single thing behind.
-gets a lot of unwanted attention sometimes, normies think im loaded and i really dont like that.
-my car and 996 are known to have shitty 2nd gear syncros. mine has them.
-its honestly not that fast.

thinking of selling it and getting an old lightning.
Did someone say cheap and reliable?

...oh who the fuck am I kidding. This thing is a 1991 and things are wearing out left and right.
Nice. And agree on the wheels, kinda ugly and do not suit the car at all.

You could prob sell them to some dumbass kid for way too much and get a decent set of something more understated.

>40k for a focus
>slower than a 2k Honda with 8k of parts.
I hope you're lying, coz if not you're dumb as fuck!!

I like your style! Always avoided BMWs coz they are too hard for me to work on, but with newer cars it hardly makes a difference, they so fuckin awful to do anything with.

>rear defroster only half of the fucking window
The fuck, you're kidding?? How can they even think that's a good idea?
>not as reliable when tuned

Not entirely true. All it needs is a more aggressive maintenance schedule. It also have supporting mods like oil cooler, oil catch can, and gauge hijack for knock warnings and AFR meter. 8k miles on tune and as far as I can tell no ill effects.

tuned =/= abuse
redneck detected.

Get that piece of shit mid-life-crisis mobile outta here. Get a fucking life you trailer trash.
It wouldn't get walked by a $10k mustang with bolt-ons. But I imagine you're just exaggerating.

It could get walked by a $20k mustang with a blower and bolt-ons though.

It could also get walked by a $7500 motorcycle.

At the end of the day, I still have a hellcat, so I don't give a shit.
I am not fucking kidding. it only covers the bottom half of the fucking window. and thats the half i dont fucking need because of the god damn spoiler.

You'll love the scatpack if you get it. They're great.

It was either this or the zl1 or a '17 grand sport vette. All in the same price range pretty much. Ended up getting a great deal on the cat, and in the area I live it's rarer. I prefer the retro look a little more than the Camaro, but it's still a great looking pony.

I think they've fixed the DCT with the post-facelift. I have a slushbox and I've only had it shudder once or twice. I've also heard of people throwing a drop-in filter and it helps response and removes shudder completely; might give it a try.
the first two generations in the US came with a 5 speed manual until 1991 IIRC, later generations had manuals only in the lower trim levels

I drive uber in the wekends for some extra cash, in good weekends I can catch several consecutive +2.0x fares, pocketing myself $150 of so per night. But after many hours driving in the city my clutch leg gets sore and I wish I got the automatic instead. Sometimes I miss the clutch and grind the gears because my leg got numb for clutching in and out so much. But sometimes I can blast down some country roads, taking curves like a mad man and I feel it's worth it. it might be a little heavy and only 160hp but it's the fastest car I've owned and doesn't handle bad at all. Maybe I'll be a ble to afford a GTI or a MX-5 once I sort my life around.

I've also heard you need to take out a part of its intake snorkel to get the full effect. Forum I read it on has nothing but high praise for it (and dynos).
Eh, something for me to keep in mind, I guess.
I domt think 300hp in a fat ass truck is fast tho
That went over my head, but I'm definitely not him.
>dropping 50 grand on a useless ev
I got it for closer to 30.. but it's pretty comfy and gets looks. I like driving back and forth between my shop and home so it's the daily for now.
Autos are not nearly as bad. I autox in auto, too poor for manual, I have tons of fun.
The transmission debate is shit for fake enthusiasts
Why's that? Not 'Murican?
You should gut the batteries and shit in there and slap a bigger turbo on. It would be lighter and probably make more power.

But then it wouldnt be an ev eh?
Probably not worth it for how I drive it.
But there is someone with a vette engined swapped in.
If mine ever shits the bed I know what I'd do with it.
The 9 gallon tank would be a pain though.
Oh but it is. The 425 lb/ft of torque helps.
And missing part of the truck
Those used are like 50 to 60 grand how did you get for 30?
9gallon tank
Serious? What the point of this car?
It matters for four or five things

Serious track driving
Driving downhill (but some autos let you select more than first and second for this)
Comfort in an econobox (older/shittier automatic transmissions probably shift worse than you. see: corolla.)

And then that's the end of the auto vs. manual debate lest you get into the dreaded manual vs. other kinds of manual vs auto vs. other kinds of auto debate.
I have the same truck but without rust. Rust bucket over there isn't me.
Ah OK. That one in the picture needs help
Bought it from a friend of mine who needed more room in his garage for a tesla.
And yes the gas tank is around 9 gallons, it's an EV after all.
Fun can't be right or wrong because it's subjective

And here is around the point where the thread derails into bullshit like whether or not an SMG or DCT is a real manual and a motorcycle dude stopping by to inform us that car shifters suck
Where do i get rich friends?
Connections. Or your local yacht club
Motorcycle dude here, sequentials are the only real manuals
Own an auto repair/performance shop in a relatively wealthy area.
Then your regulars will become your friends and sell you the cars they don't want for cheap. Like my fisker
How old are you if you dont mind me asking?
How much did it cost to open shop?
40, don't doxx pls.
Cost was around 500k but that was back in '09 when property was cheap and I already had a loan for the equipment.

Basically something that drives similar but a bit more powerful. People have been saying get like a 330i or 135i instead. What would you get?
The 330i would be my choice, faster than the Nissan if you're talking about the turbo models, and handles a bit better as well. Nicer interior too.

You'd have to be a retard to lose control of this car under normal circumstances

Always want to go faster, huge money sink
Loud, near 0 soundproofing

DCT so it can't hold as much power as the 5MT, and it's a time bomb.

Got a lot of Focus in this thread.
My daily is the 05 Focus. Dad's is the EK hatch, my summer shitbox/sunny day/sort of project car is the Benz in the background
small and light
"okay" gas mileage. About 30MPG regardless of how lightly or aggressively you drive
hatchback can throw 2 bikes inside no problem
don't care if it gets beat up a bit because of dust from work
fun to toss around
modern enough to have OBD2 but not too modern to be totally loaded down with bullshit
good aftermarket could go buy a prebuilt turbo kit for it right now
timing chain
oil changes are super easy
genuinely like the looks of it
can do like 110mph if pushed
really fun at like 5 in 1st gear, 30 in 3rd gear and like 85-90 in 5th gear
one of the last 3 door hatches around, and I like that
extremely easy to cut the front wheels loose
extremely easy to cut the front wheels loose
shitty interior
shitty plastics
paint is shit
body roll
not very fast
absolutely no traction in rain
just general shitty econobox/shitbox complaints
not that comfortable but OK I guess
door rattles when closed
driver side mirror literally always vibrates all over the place so basically useless other than distinguishing "there's a car somewhere in this area" but no way to see exactly where or what type of vehicle
no sunroof or anything, only two side windows for sunny days

it's been a reliable little guy though, not going to complain for a year now over 5K miles. Only thing I really do is oil changes and I beat the fuck out of this car. Only way I'm getting rid of it is if it goes to the scrapyard, I see no reason to change and every year at work they produce some of the worst dust known to man so no point in getting a really nice car. Google "asphalt grindings dust" or "RAP asphalt dust" and read horror stories. Fucking hate that shit but that's what's cutting my paycheck so whatever.

wish I actually had

but decided no because of aforementioned dust problem at work. Wouldn't want to ruin a perfectly fine SVT but goddamn do I want one so fucking bad...

Pretty sure it's the stripes and mudflaps. Mine (>>17064492) might as well be invisible, even with the white wheels, the only attention it gets is from other ST/RS owners.

How are you liking it? My friend got one in the trademark blue last week, and I just got to drive it on a twisty road last night. Really damn impressive car, and what really surprised me is how chill it is for normal driving. It really makes me wish my ST had the RS's adjustable suspension, steering, etc.

Ayy I just got one couple weeks ago. And I definitely agree with all your points. Love it to death though.
The only thing it's "sporty" compared to is a base model Fiesta; it's just a riced out econobox. I'm under the impression you just heard the word "sporty", absolutely HAD to buy a new car for unknown reason, didn't actually know anything about cars have never driven anything else in your life and need to convince yourself what you bought actually resembles a sports car in any way

Fuck I wish people would stop comparing their cars to sports cars when their frame of reference is econoboxes and slightly faster econoboxes
Eh, other people are listing more than one, so:
Very reliable, especially the N55 engine (N54 is a bit of turd)
One of my favorite looking cars period (way before I bought it)
Reasonably fast in a straight line (somewhere between upper 4 to 5 seconds to 60)
Handles surprisingly well, especially with M sport
Transmission is unbelievably smooth (most manual cars with 300+ hp will jerk you the fuck around)
Good driver feedback overall
Well-designed, quality interior
No discernible turbo lag
God-tier I6 engine
It's a modern car that actually has windows
I wasn't sure about the idrive system but now I really like it
The performance gap between it and the M3 isn't that large, especially compared to the gap between the E46 330i and M3
The seats aren't bad themselves, but as I said I cannot fucking set them right
Sometimes when shifting at lower RPMs there isn't really power for a second or two (BMW techs described this as "transmission lag", definitely not the turbo either way)
^ This isn't even a case of "muh haterz" it's just this board is all parroting memes and shitposting nowadays.
Alpine white has a yellow tint to it that annoys me

I will say, if anyone is interested in an E92 don't be put off by /o/ shitposts, it actually is a very good car all around, that said the 2 series (M240i if we're talking 335i) is really its spiritual successor while the actual successor, the 340i/F30 in general is pretty bad due to bloating and numbness. The 4 series is also a bit of a waste given it's 12k~ more over the equivalent 2 series for no real performance benefits
Dude, I don't know what your definition of "sporty" is, but it's definitely not the same one that the vast majority of people, including professional journalists, seem to have. Calling the ST "riced" is particularly ridiculous, unless you've never actually read up on them and think it's a bodykit package or something - it's as different from a normal Fiesta as an M3 is from a 328i or as a Boss Mustang is from a V6.

That said, the point of my post was kind of right in line with what I think you're trying to say - it's not a sports car, it's not even a hardcore "performance" car, it's a daily driver that's been upgraded to make it fun to drive and reasonably quick. Contrary to what you're guessing, I've owned and driven numerous sports and performance cars and used to build track/club racing cars for a living, and my ST is currently parked right next to my AP2 S2000. My frame of reference is souped-up BMWs, and, believe it or not, the ST is still very impressive for what it is. I'm not the only one who thinks so, either, for example my old boss, who dailies a C7 Z06 and also owns a modded 991 GT3 and an E92 M3 race car, drove it and loved it.

People seem to totally misunderstand the point of the ST and get all riled up because of it. I bought mine because I needed something that would be comfy, efficient, and reliable for my hour-long commute to work, capable of hauling reasonably bulky stuff around for personal or work errands, but which would still be fun to take to the canyons or the track. (My shop was 5 minutes from one of the best roads around and driving all the way home and back to get the S2000 would've been ridiculous.)
I got a 2016 Hellcat as well. You're a fucking madman for daily driving it. Mines strictly a weekend car. The round trip to my work would fucking kill me in gas.

I like it overall. I may be a little biased towards it considering it was my first car.

My plan is to take the factory 175 BHP\205 lb-ft and give it a nice boost to 400/430. I also plan on removing roughly 200-300 lbs. from the curb weight, which should put it around 2800-2900 lbs.

My '09 has only needed a sway bar endlink and a battery. Other than that just fluid changes and tires like every other car. Also, if you're getting a lot of rattles you might need to replace one(or more) of your motor mounts.

You can use the SVT suspension kit on your car with an omni kit from Massive. Highly worth it as it's around $300 and lowers and really tightens up the car.

Do you know if you have a factory RSB?

How's the auto stop/start feature in the RS? I don't know if that's exactly what it's called but I've heard Fatt Matt Farrah talking about it and I'm curious.
Yes, I'm planning on getting the Ford Racing kit, should lower it half an inch. A great deal. It needs shocks, just waiting to scrape up some cash to buy them.

What's a good set of wheels with 4-way symmetry for these cars? I want lower profile tires but not sure what to get, I want something lighter. Not super crazy light cause I don't want to spend too much but I want something like the Work Equip 01 (are these super expensive? Are they any good? I like the looks but I don't know much about them.)
What did you pay for it? All the rs's in mi are 50k
where are you from?
Recommend the Ford Fusion?
Been thinking of getting one.
2003 Acura RSX Type S
Had it for 6 years, but didn't know how to drive it so it sat. Been learning the last couple weeks.

2017's been having dead battery issues. I know sport's have been at least.

Hear that later manufacture dates have the problem fixed, computer systems staying on causing battery drain.

Otherwise, comfy car, but so many are around you won't feel like a special snowflake.
You mean you're fat. I'm 1.88 which is like 6'2 and a colleague of mine is 2.02 which is 6'5?? or so? I drive in a twingo 133 rs and he drives a c1, both no problems with space whatsoever
Guy you responded to here.
It's a pretty comfy car, but I moved up from a Kia Rio so everything about it seems good to me. Large interior, sensible button layout. Quiet inside. Feels a little sportier to drive than the Malibu etc I tested. It's no speed demon but it hasn't ever felt underpowered to me yet. "sport mode" button is fun but it just gives you better shift control and pours fuel on the engine making it go fast and sound cool. Got mine for just under 30k so don't settle for anything over
