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

Review

Excellent buy. Plenty of front seat leg room, engine peppy and 37+ mpg on highway (44mpg for one stretch). Solid/comfortable seats, interior very quiet. I wanted a Mustang, but I am very happy with the Focus and it is $13,000 cheaper. I have driven it at sea level and 10,000 ft., it handled just fine. No complaints! The transmission gearings are spaced just right to help keep RPMs down, shifting is easy.

Best Features

I found the manual transmission will keep your speed constant on a downhill grade, similar to an engine brake. No need to ride the brakes, just leave it in 2nd or 3rd or 4th gear (your choice based on steepness of grade) and the tranny does the rest.

Worst Features

Would like a trunk release from the drivers seat (eventhough there is a trunk release on the fob).
