I drive 500 miles each week to work, with high gas prices I needed to get a more mielage friendly vehicle. I looked at; sat in and drove VW's, Honda, Hundai, KIA, Toyotas, Chevy, Dodge, Nissan. I'm not a little person 300 lbs. 6 ft. (maybe a little round; 61 don't bend like I used to) I don't fit in many small cars, that's why I had an Explorer. We stopped to check out the Focus wow! I had no Idea! It's roomy, very classy, leather, has power, great price, lots of extras, and looks great! It has cut my gas bill in half! Mileage around town 31.5MPG! 35 to 37MPG on the hiway! Hooks up to my cell for hands free phone use; 4 weeks now fantastic
I like being able to get in and out of it with little hassle. Love the leather, cell phone access, leg room is more than my Explorer, color red; mood lighting is cool; moon roof; handles like my old Mustang GT...I like the whole package, price and all. If your looking or good mileage don't pass it up
The only thing I would suggest it disc brakes front and back, my SES had drum back...they work fine but disc is just better.
