    Default a 2009 ford focus

    hello, has any one got any info on the focus 1.6 zetec? I have found one on low miles at a good price and a very good price for my vec,, but have heard they are not so good on juice. If I had lisitened to people I would never have bought my vec every one said they were bad on the juice but mine has averaged 38 mpg over the three and a half years I have had it. so any info on the focus please, thanks ANT.

    So just before you bought your Vectra lots of people said they're poor on fuel consumption, and you're saying they were all wrong, and now you want people's opinions on the Focus' fuel consumption....what if they're wrong again, and are you going to heed their advice anyway given that you're crowing that you didn't listen last time?

    not crowing,, the reason that I bought this vec was simple,,, it was dirt cheap, most people who gave advice last time had NEVER OWNED a vec, so I took no notice. thats why I would have liked advice from people who have owned a 1.6 focus, but never mind, thanks for your reply.

    My mother in law has an 06 1.6 focus. She does a two mile journey to work twice a day and then for tootling around to the shops etc. she averages 28mpg. She used to get better mpg out of her old 1st gen 1.8 focus and that liked a drink! I can only think its cos the newer focus is a lot heavier therefore making the engine work harder

    1 x 2.0 zetec Mondeo and did 120k

    never had an issue with any.

    Good and bad in all marques.

    Our other car is a 1.4 05 focus zetec, my mechanic always quotes the...fix or repair daily....but the only thing he has had to do to it in the 3 years weve had it is change the brake pads. Its nice to drive and good on petrol....not as nice as my vectra-c of course
