2008 Ford Focus SES Coupe: Oops...It Did It Again

August 25, 2008

This weekend was my second time in the Ford Focus. The first time I only moved it from one parking spot to another. This time I had it for the whole weekend.

My initial impressions: I think the Focus is attractive in our particular shade of blue. It was fine to drive around in. The interior has a lot of plastic and the seats are hard. But it's perky. No trouble merging onto the freeway. It's relatively inexpensive. I did some grocery shopping and found the trunk was nice and deep. Sync didn't seem to like my iTouch. Too many leftover Napster tracks it didn't want to play. It said something about not being able to recognize them. I can't remember the exact words the loud lady used. But she played my store-bought music without complaining.

Then my passenger got in and said, "this door pull is broken."

Argh! Didn't we have that fixed once already? It's not as bad as when James reported it the first time it happened. But it is indeed separating from the door. Nice.
