After having an Escort wagon for 11 years, and 100,000 miles (the clutch is still original) I decided to look for a second car. Test drove the Honda but bought the Focus SES Sedan. Right price, good ownership and reliability experience with Ford, and union made. Honda is the Starbucks of the car world. Big money for average coffee.
SYNC is the best. Smooth ride. Much improved sound deadening. Mileage. It really rides and handles like a much more expensive car. The seats are set high for great visibility with plenty of head space.
More space between the parking brake and the driver's seat and the seat belt fastener. A little more cabin room.
