Unexpected 40 mpg on highway!
By Eric on


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


My recent purchase of the Focus was the right choice. On my first tank of mostly highway miles I got 40.4 mpg. Good power with the manual 5-speed. Satellite radio is a big bonus. Cruise control is steady and the overall ride is smooth. A great feature is the constant mpg reading that helps you ease up on the pedal to get optimal mileage. I test drove the Corolla, Aveo, Cobalt, Mazda 3, Yaris and Kia Rio. Ford focus has good looks, a solid engine and was the best bang for the buck. I highly recommend it!

Best Features

Satellite radio. Cruise control. Mpg reading and miles to empty tank reading. Awesome mpg overall!

Worst Features

Dome light that gives off more light in the back seat. It's a bit dark back there at night if you turn on the light. A higher arm rest would be nice too, but that would depend on the person. Would like a moon-roof without spoiler (not available on 2009 models).
