2009 Ford Focus S 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
This was my 5th Focus purchase.I picked a black ext./Taupe int.This was an automatic SE.I loved the taupe over the black interior.I was extremely impressed with the improvements over my pre 07,05'S,03 versions.My only disappointment-no wagon or hatchback models.Mpg was amazing on the freeway,42-45 mpg.It did better than my 09 Honda Fit.The Fit was better in the city though.The Focus was an excellent, relaxing car to drive.I felt safe in it.If you do not need cargo options this is the car to buy.It does have a large trunk.I combined the best qualities of both my cars and traded them both in on a loaded 2010 Kia Soul Sport.
Taupe color interior,Sirius Satelite Radio,The handling and comfort of the drive.The gas mileage was fantastic for this size.Feels solid.
Clean up the interior trim around the rear window,to many seams,looks busy.Bring back Station Wagon and Hatchback models for people wanting more cargo options.
