Solid - Quick - Smooth

2008 Ford Focus SES 2dr Coupe (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
When I test drove my Focus I was surprised at how well it drove. It accelerates well and the automatic transmission is one of the smoothest I've ever felt. I drove a Mazda 3 automatic and the downshift was quite abrupt. The Focus downshift is controlled and smooth. Also, this car handles curves excellently. You can keep pushing the throttle on a curve and the car stays on it without body roll. Because of the performance, options and rebate I think it was a good purchase. If you are looking for an inexpensive, fuel efficient, zippy and solid vehicle I recommend this car.
Loving the satellite radio. Traction control. SES euro handling. The radio/dash lights at night are cool and helpful in seeing instruments. Coupe syling with spoiler and rims. electrochromatic inside rearview mirror is awesome.
Getting 24 mpg in mixed driving. Was hoping for 26-27. Rear seat cushions could be firmer. Tend to sink a little.
