We bought a 2007 Ford Focus S base model in Nov., no p/w or locks, just a plain jane get to work car. With only 6,400 Miles on it, the headlights have dimmed a lot, dash lights dimmed, battery light comes on. Replaced battery after getting stuck on the side of interstate, and still have the same problem. Its sad when you have to have your vehicle serviced at only 6,400 Miles for powertrain prolems. Do not buy this car unless you go and get a 2008 model that is showing to have better build quality! But on the other hand, if you don't have a lead foot, it has great mpg.
Great mpg w/out a lead foot driver, comfortable ride in town, sporty look w/ses model, good a/c system, wipers are very quiet, 6 cup holders, soft seats that sit higher for taller people, and large trunk area!
Better build (problem solved in 2008 models), quieter ride, better sound system such as pioneer or bose, more options such as automatic headlamps, drl (daytime running lights), standard cruise control and power windows/locks, xenon headlamp and led taillights option, etc.
