Nice Car with no suspension
By dmustang on
2008 Ford Focus SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
I have owned this car since 1/1 and had nothing but problems with the front suspension. This car has very weak front springs especially the right side bottoms out with every bump in the road, inclined driveways forget about it. The front underside has taken a beating with such a weak suspension. Has been in the shop numerous times but to no avail(so far). Dealership has replaced front strut, aligned it and reposition a strut also to rid itself of a loud popping noise on the left front side. Will go back in the shop next week. Springs are so weak I can compress them with a single hand Fuel mileage I find above average, great dash and readouts, comfortable seats(do not spill on them).
I love the info gauge it greatly improves my driving to conserve energy. Trunk is huge for this size car.
Better fabrics for the seats stains easily with plain water much less other liquids. Front suspension must be improved.
