Big improvemnet over previous Ford C car
By peter on
Vehicle
2009 Ford Focus S 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Review
Big improvement in driving dynamics and nvh over previous foci. Well equipped for price. exterior styling is a hit or miss affair. I would prefer something a little less daring. Not crazy about squarish look on front bumper cover and hood line seems a little contrived. Haven't had car for long but NVH seems good and based on past experience with Ford don't expect many service issues. Good gas mileage for a "heavy" C car. Ford has spent a lot of effort to tweak gas mileage performance.
Favorite Features
Good blend between gas mileage and performance. Good handling. Doors have a solid feel on closing. Well equipped for price. $2-3k price diff vs corolla or civic. Very spacious interior for a c class car although rear leg room is tight. Excellent sided mirrors. high rear trunk makes backing up iffy
Suggested Improvements
Interior material quality is a bit cheap. Rear door insert is plastic while the front door insert is cloth. Seat material could stand upgrade. Need 5 or 6 sp auto trans. front seats don't fold down enough to approximate level floor for cargo. interior gas release handle would be nice.
