2008 Ford Focus S 2dr Coupe (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


So far I'm pleased with the car. I purchased it with the thought that I would cut my fuel consumption for my Expedition. Gas was $4.25 when I bought. I took a trip to Carlsbad caverns and also to the Grand Canyon, my weekend trip was in excess of 1300 miles. My dislike: Radio has an XM button I'm unable to add XM to the radio or any of the Sync options, there is no upgrade other than going to a higher cost on the vehicle. Cruise control: Engineers this is a gas miser add cruise? No spare, yes you save weight, break down in the desert New Mexico see if you walk out. No aftermarket, no cruise, no radio and who knows about a spare. Other than that I like.

Worst Features

Add spare or donut tire, break down in New Mexico and the engineers testing it won't walk out in 120 degree heat. Add cruise to low end models this is a gas miser help us suckers who have taken a $20K hit on or Expeditions and pickups. Radio and sync add to all the cars no matter the model
