My 2008 Ford Focus SE has 18,900 i've already replace a heater motor, it keeps stalling at idle but the dealership can never seem to find a problem with that. My newest found problem is now my rear end is squeaking and when i hit the brakes the car shoots to the left, again the dealership finds nothing wrong with it ever! i would own a ford again but not a focus its cheaply made! not worth the 14k your buying it for!
My husband and I needed a new car that got good gas mileage. We bought our Ford Focus in March 2008 and love it!! The gas mileage is awesome! While on road trips we can get 38 mpg!! Now that's not too common. We usually get around 34 average MPG and with bad weather in the winter, obviously the MPG drops because of using the heater. But it's still good, about 31 MPG in winter!! :-)
Bought my Focus with 11 miles on it in may of 08 it now is approaching 60,000 miles all commuter driving. Have had very little problems heater motor replaced under warranty the dealer has been great SYNC is great it is not the best handling car but the price and fuel mileage make up for that. I am trading her in when the new Focus comes out
mileage, fun to drive, reliable
handling it is not the greatest when you take your eyes off the road.

sporter outside mirrors; move the emergency brake handle to the other side of the console; turn window lock switch sideways; I think a two door convertible would be fantastic....
