2008 Ford Focus Sedan SES 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I had a 2001 Focus which I bought used. It had about 130,000 miles on it and I was in need of something new, with gas prices what they were I went with the SES Focus power everything is the only way to go. Best choice of a car ever, plenty of room, pepy, good on gas and gets a lot of looks. I added a few hidden emergency lights to it for my business and when I turn them on I get a lot of ooooing and ohhhhing from people. It's a very sharp vehicle for a work vehicle. Also just added a HID coversion kit for my headlights, this is a great improvement to the safety and the look of the car at night


Favorite Features

SYNC syatem is great, 2 power jacks are nice, componants like the stereo that are not able to be stolen. The ability to use the extra remote to lock the car or open the trunk with the car running. Heated mirrors along with back window is very nice. Auto dimming rearview mirror is great


Suggested Improvements

Traction control, trunk release in the car, lighting in the glove box, better lighting in the trunk and lighting under the hood. Better way to mount headlights so you don't have to take off the grille and then each light assembley to change a bulb, must do this to change driving lights also.

2008 Ford Focus Sedan SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This isn't a bad little car. It isn't a 10 or even a 9. Now think of it. Bo was a 10. Like everyone else it should have a trunk release. How stupid can you be Ford. The seating is great for my short wife. She can see out rather well. I fit in just fine to and I'm 6' 235. The milage isn't what it should be. My wife just drives at around 60 and she hasn't gotten 30MPG yet like people on here are claiming. They should be able to get better than this with the poochy 4 cylinder. I have an old 95 Corrola that has 150000 on it and it get 37 MPG. Like I said this isn't a bad little car for the money but it isn't a 10.


Favorite Features

Sync, ride is not bad for small car.


Suggested Improvements

Trunk release and better MPG. Interior is fairly cheap also.

2008 Ford Focus Sedan SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I must say that Ford has improved in building the vehicles. The ride is very comfortable and it gives the right gas mileage. The looks are cool and interior lights are awesome. The engine is very quiet compared to the older models of Focus. I chose Ford over Toyota and Nissan.

Seating, engine, lights, music

We like our Focus. The mileage is 41 highway & 30 city, very good for an automatic. Have a squeak in suspenison is hand brake cable in hanger in front of rear axle. Ford has a fix a new grommet. We think it is a very good buy for the price. Looked at Toyota, Nissan, Vibe, Mazda
