2008 Ford Focus: Cabin Still Looks Good

March 30, 2009


We've certainly had our gripes with the cabin of our Ford Focus. Crappy ergonomics. Loose door handle.

Still, you have to give credit where credit is due, and this weekend I was pretty struck by how pristine the car's interior looks. It's been in our care for over a year now, and has over 17,000 miles on the odo. We're not exactly known for having a kid-glove approach when it comes to our test cars, yet our Ford's cabin still looks pretty much the same as it did when the car first rolled into our garage.

Also, as mentioned in a previous post, it hasn't needed any major repairs. Durability is important in this segment, and thus far, the Focus is going strong.
