I bought a 4 door Focus SES automatic 4 months ago and love it! It gets excellent mileage, 40+ mpg hwy, is sporty, comfortable, quiet, and attractive. The dash is laid out well with many features found in luxury cars. My SUV now stays parked save for boat towing and family vacations, the Focus fulfills lengthy business travel and around town errands using much less gas. It has more features for less money than the Accord or Corolla.
Sync hands free calling, Sirius radio with great sound quality, front leg room, mileage, value for the money.
Voice recognition of Sync system could stand improvement. A trip timer and compass would be helpful. Leg room in rear is sufficient for children but cramped with adults, but it's a compact car after all.
