My '01 Focus was great, just bought '08..
By new '08 focus on
2008 Ford Focus S 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Cant say anything at all bad about my Ford experience with regards to Focus. After owning an '01 since new with well over 100k mi and superb reliability I gladly bought a new '08 Focus and it's head and shoulders better than my beloved '01! I havent sold my '01, what does that tell ya. Great fuel mileage and comfort not to mention quite peppy even with smallest 4cyl motor choice. Great car for 1st time buyer as well as older frugal guy like me,
Interior is top notch! Dash layout and sync radio system are my favorites
Can't think of any except bring that hot Euro spec Focus over to tromp the imports competition even further!
