Love my Focus
By billd100 on
2008 Ford Focus SE 2dr Coupe (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Only had it a month. Mileage in mixed driving is 32 mpg. I got the Deluxe package which provides for better handling. Amazed at the standard equipment on such an economy car. Car is comfortable and roomy and I like it much better than most of the others in its class. It drives similarly to the VW Golf we rented in England a few years back. Don't care for the Pirelli P6 tires as we live where it gets cold and the traction in snow and ice is less than desirable.
Seats, gas mileage, handling, price (what a bargain!), build quality (not a squeak or rattle anywhere), made in USA.
The tires are the only thing I might change. Original equipment tires are usually sub-par anyway.
