Best Focus Yet
By Desert Dog on
2008 Ford Focus SES 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
My third Focus. Liked the other two, love this one so far. Extremely quiet compared to the others. Smooth shifting automatic. Upholstery much improved. Fit and finish excellent so far. I've rented a Fusion while traveling, and this has many of the same atributes, but has a tighter (better) steering radius. Really impressed so far.
Turning radius, easy to park, very quiet and smooth. Lots of storage for my "stuff". Trunk holds our luggage with room to spare. Like the "message center" (just like the Fusion) and the classy looking interior and exterior, and the Perelli tires.
I agree that the radio antenna may need an upgrade. Some FM reception is not quite as good.
