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

Review

Better than expected. the 5 speed is a delight to drive, clean shifting, >30 mpg already (<1000mi) on ~75% highway/25%city driving. I find the exterior fresh - it makes me smile to see it in the parking lot. The interior is pleasant & modern. Quiet drive (unlike '07). SES comes with electrochromic mirror and trip calculator (mpg, mi to mt, fuel effeciency...). Brand new so reliability rating hopeful (good warranty). Definitely worth checking out!

Favorite Features

SYNC! by voice I can make & receive phone calls via bluetooth (never have to touch my phone), not to mention choose songs/artists on my ipod mp3 and radio stations. It works and so far better than most new technology I've encountered.

Suggested Improvements

The back end is high limiting rear visibility of road. The turn signal is positioned at 11oclock where I prefer a lower (8-9 oclock) location. Beware: spare tire is extra, standard is sealant & pump for flats
