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