Great Runabout Vehicle

2009 Ford Focus S 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Review
This is a great little car. It is what it is though, and that is a eco-box with a few luxury and sport options. The loaded SES with 17" wheels and a 5-speed is very fun to drive. I wish the option for a ~200HP engine were available. The suspension in the SES is not as hard as the Honda Civic SI, but handles pretty well for a 4-door. The seats are extraordinarily comfortable. The back seats are fairly roomy too. I would buy the car again. It is a commuter and backup family car for me, so it works out well. Not recommended for more being primary grocery getter for more than 1-child. Perfect for commuting, students, occasional running about the town or as a primary touring vehicle for 2.
Favorite Features
SYNC. It integrates USB Flash Audio, Vehicle Management, Blue-tooth Audio, etc. as well or better than current generation luxury cars. Very decent mileage w/ manual trans...35-42 MPG by driving hyper conservatively; 30 MPG with typical driving; and 25 MPG with spirited or in-city traffic driving
Suggested Improvements
1-A LOT More Power (maybe a T5 turbo 2.0L); 2-A six speed manual transmission; 3-Use the frontal body from the European version of the Focus (less boxy); 4-Better suspension (too high off ground); 5-18" wheels; 6-HID Lights; 7-Better Audio System-Audiophile is good, but not like the 600W Lincoln MKz
