Not bad for the price! Focus SES 5 speed
By Jesse on
Vehicle
2008 Ford Focus SES 2dr Coupe (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Review
First Time Ford/American new Car Buyer! Ford's Fuel economy/reliability record w/ Focus/fun to drive vehicle caught my attention! With the Focus SES, I got a fully loaded car w/ leather seats! Great combination of sytle, electronic gadgets (sync, 6 CD w/ bass box, Sirius, Sunroof,etc.), sport handling/comforable ride, solid car feeling, smooth engine, fuel economy, and it's been a pleasure to drive w/ a manual transmission. Exterior fit and finish could use a little more refinement (the front hood alignment is a little off w/ the body). Overall, not bad for the price. ney. 8+ months later, the Focus is still a thumbs up.
Favorite Features
Heated Leather Seats, Sync, Ambiance Lights, fun to drive, Remote control trunk release, good performance (for a 4 cyln engine), sports suspension combined with a comfortable ride, solid feeling (as compared to light and airy Japanese models), heated mirrows, safety features, etc.
Suggested Improvements
The interior is not bad, and I'd like to see Ford reach the levels of refinement that the Japanese have (Scion TC, Mazda3). Sun Visors, quality of interior panals, and trunk carpeting, better resale value (like the Japanese). When Ford brings the Euro Focus/Fiesta to US, it will be even better!
