2009 Ford Focus SE 2dr Coupe (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Review

Very satisfying driving experience! 36 tank fills of 50/50 mixed driving and I'm averaging 31 MPG actual (on-board computer says 32.1). Amazingly no rattles. Fit & finish very good, but door & cup holder plastic scratches easily. Dark blue metallic paint gets frequent compliments. Only maintenance: oil change/tire rotation! I added a 3- piece Curt Hitch (used for bikes, not towing) which is a perfect fit & well hidden behind bumper. The German built 5-speed manual is precise. The care appears tall for its width, but the looks will grow on you...mostly because the coupe is distinctive. Stereo should satisfy most listeners. A perfect commuting car. Only wish it was a hatch and seats folded flat

Favorite Features

Still steeply discounted: Leather heated seats & cruise for ~$16K...Wow! 17" wheels/tires look great and signifiacntly improve handling, but decrease MPGs a bit. Sync is outstanding. IPod interface works well. Large trunk.

Suggested Improvements

Car needs folding mirrors & better rear lighting. Coupe best for 1-2 people, due to difficult rear access. Heated seats need hi/lo setting (slow to warm/heat inconsistent). Leather looks plain; needs a little contrast to dress it up. Move interior door-pull back for better leverage/wind will grab!
