I recently purchased the 2009 Focus SE and I have to say that I am pleasantly surprised. The car has good styling, the interior has enough bells and whistles to keep it interesting and the main thing is the MPG. I traded in my 2005 Ford Escape that on a good day would get 16 in town. The Focus is getting 27.2 MPG, the savings in fuel alone make the car a great buy.
