Seeing the ever rising gas prices forced me to get rid of my 15 mpg averaging Equinox. I was going to look at the 4 cylinder Escape but the Focus caught my eye. I love the car overall. I took it for 2 long trips already. The gas mileage is phenomenal. The engine is smooth during acceleration and is barely audible at cruising speeds. It also has enough power to keep up with traffic whether it being with one or 5 passengers aboard. Great car overall. The SYNC system is awesome. It's the best feature Ford ever came up with especially with a new cell phone ban while driving law that is coming to Ontario.
- SYNC system - smooth engine and automatic transmission - dash lights at night (nice blue hue) - gas mileage - great long distance cruiser - traction control and abs work great
Only a few: - dome lights only shine the front section of the car, terrible if you're unloading things from the back seat at night. - no interior trunk release, always need key fob.
