2009 Ford Focus SES 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


I've had this car for about 4 months now and I really enjoy driving it. It's pretty comfortable, though I haven't taken any trips yet. The leather heated seats and sunroof are nice, and the dash + heat + radio all have a really nice interface which is easy to read and understand. Ambient lightning is a neat feature but if it's not included I wouldn't go and pay extra for it. You're looking at the road anyway. The handling is responsive, though the steering seems a bit wobbly when you go over bumps on the highway..not sure if it's supposed to do this. Had torque steer a couple times at a green light. The sunroof has a little rattle, but I'll get it checked next week.

Favorite Features

Fuel economy! About 33mpg hwy/city mixed. About 390 miles/tank. Great acceleration for a 4cyl when you put your foot down. Sync is a great feature which I often use, but it needs some upgrades. Trunk is a good size for a small car. Good in snow so far. O/D off button = great for slowing down.

Suggested Improvements

Need more rear leg room. It's non existent if the driver is tall Sync needs upgrade to work with all phones. Needs a voice search command for finding music that you don't know the exact name of. Dome light in the rear seats - can't see anything at night. Trunk should pop open and not just unlock
