Traded down to Focus from an SUV. The Focus performs well and acceleration is not affected by the number of people in the car like other small cars. I truely enjoy the gas economy. Interior is roomy, seats provide the support and the being able to raise or lower the driver'ss seat is a good touch. The SES provids most of the nice buttons that are normally not standard in this price class of vehicle. Ride noise is minimal compared to other small cars I've owned. Handling and ride qualilty are outstanding.
Love the SES styling and exterior looks. Headlamps and front facia give it a sporty look.
Standard thicker sway bar in rear. Tendency to skitter a little when cornering hard.
