2008 Ford Focus Long Term Road Test

2008 Ford Focus SES Coupe: Drive Me Buggy

April 27, 2009


The arrival of spring and summer means more than just the final bell of the school year. It's bug time. And this weekend's 950-mile roundtrip drive on I-5 cut through California's central valley farmland, a haven for all sorts of grille-loving insects.

With 37-plus mpg from the Ford Focus, we breezed past fuel stations, skipping the typical road-trip windshield and bumper washings, which got me thinking: What's your favorite tried-and-true method of cleaning splattered insectual roadkill off your car's front end?
