I like my Focus better than my Civic!

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

Review

I gave my daughter my standard Civic and planned to get new Civic. I test drove the automatic Civic and I remembered why I got the standard. During acceleration, Civics bog at low speeds, and it is less noticeable in the standard. I test drove a Focus, and it was quicker to start (the 0-60 specs are equal but the Focus has more low- end torque). The Focusís cloth seats arenít as nice, but you can get Focus heated leather heated seats for the same price as Civic cloth seats! Also, the Focus has less road noise; the headlights are better (Consumer Reports backs this up); the reliability and safety are the same; it comes with Bluetooth phone (very cool!); and it is less expensive! Try a Focus!

Best Features

Bluetooth, hands-free phone; good reliability and safety specs; leather heated seats; headlights; acceleration; rear-view mirror; fuel economy; good buy!
