2009 Ford Focus SES 2dr Coupe (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Bought used. The design inside and out looks good with the SES package (although inexpensive for a new car, doesn't look like a cheap car). Rims look awesome, but they will get a little scratched up being flush the side of the tire. Driving and handling are great, driving 120KM on the highway feels perfectly safe. Driven in winter conditions Dec-Jan this year, no different than any other car. Has some traction control that kicks on when slipping once...car is smarter than me. Glad I bought this over the Mazda3 (I notice more and more with the passenger door dents from attempted break ins).
Fully loaded SES, all the options together make the car rock (SYNC, heated seats, power everything, leather, steering wheel controls.....etc)
1) The door handle on the inside is too close the hinge point. In the coupe, the doors are long and a little heavy; with the handle so far in, closing the door requires a little muscle. 2) A lock on the gas cap. 3) Sliding front seats to get into backseats is not as easy as other coupes
