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

Review

It lacks the ergonomic perfection of the Civic, the driving dynamics of the 3, and the eternity and a half warranty of the Elantra, yet the Focus brings to the compact table a truly unique set of attributes.It has an amazing set of features (bluetooth, usb, sirius etc), great steering, mid-size ride comfort, a vault like chassis, and admirable fuel economy. On the debit side, the taller than average ride height limits its toss-ability through curves, and the interior could use fewer expanses of silver plastic. All told, with the benefit of 3500 in factory incentives, the Focus presents an overall value and feature set unique to the market. Thumbs up Ford.

Favorite Features

Sync, visibility, direct steering, compliant ride, suppressed road noise, good balance of mpg and horsepower, traction control on a 14k dollar vehicle

Suggested Improvements

Remove the ridiculous side vent, more seat lumbar support, better stereo imaging for the audio system, include a spare tire standard, four wheel disc brakes
