    My car

    I had this 2.0 TDCi estate as a hire car for a couple of days when my BMW 525 diesel was in the garage. I have to say I was very impressed, considering it's 'just a Ford'.

    The build quality was very good, with no rattles or squeaks, and the performance was surprisingly good, with mid-range torque feeling as good or better than my BMW.

    Roadholding was unbelievable - it's far better then the 5 Series Tourer on bends. To crash this car you'd have to be doing something really stupid! Comfort levels were very good, too, with no complaints at all on the roads I drove it on.

    With regard to interior space - well, it was OK. Rear legroom is a little tight, but more than adequate for most. Boot space is superb. Why can't Ford stick a 2.5- or 3.0-litre diesel into the Focus... it would then be a great competitor for the likes of Audi and BMW.
