2010 Ford Focus Sedan SEL 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Love the Sync System. No other maker has anything to compete, until you hit the luxury lines. I would rather have a Ford anyways, they have proven to be more reliable.


Favorite Features

Sync Traction Control Roll Stability Control MYKEY FUEL ECONOMY! 42 MPG going 65 MPH 38 MPG going 80 MPH

2010 Ford Focus Sedan SEL 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Purchased last Jan and drove it about 100 miles on salt covered roads after a snowy day. When I got home, I noticed that the paint in front of the rear wheel wells was chipping off. It continued to get worst every time I drove it in the snow. The dealer repainted this area and placed 8 pieces of clear plastic on the doors and fenders to try and prolong it from happening again per the Ford TSB. If you live in a area where they sand or salt the roads in the winter and expect the paint to be durable and long lasting, you should avoid this vehicle.


Favorite Features

Sync, USB, Heated seats


Suggested Improvements

Redesign body shape to protect paint from road damage, power seat option, navigation system

2010 Ford Focus Sedan SEL 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Purchased a new 2010 Ford focus SEL sedan. Liked the exterior styling. Interior design pretty cool except for impractical cup holder location. Drove the car 13K miles when the "Wrench" light came on and lost power control to accelerator. This happened 3 times with Ford not able to do anything because "Engine" had not come on and no DTC codes where there to read. Set out on vacation only to have it happen again, this time Eng light did come on. Took to dealer. They said they knew all along it was the Throttle Position Sensor but could not do anything until code verified this. Also found out that the parts have been on back order for several weeks. Ford still has not issued a service bulletin?


Favorite Features

Ride feels stable at all speed ranges.


Suggested Improvements

Lack of throttle response should be addressed. Cup holders made for those with short arms. Would like to have tilt steering wheel option.

2010 Ford Focus Sedan SEL 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This car is built well, rides quietly and is as at home on the freeway at 75 mph, as it is driving in the city doing 15 mph. It is entirely possible to get 40 mpg on a flat highway, and usually 30 mpg in town or more. The seats are comfortable and firm. The engine is quiet and has plenty of power for all kinds of driving. It drives as smoothly as any car twice its size, yet it is fun to drive, and easy to handle. Ford did a wonderful job on the electric steering -- it feels just like rack and pinion pump steering. This car is a sleeper. Few people realize just how good this car drives, or they would be standing in line at the Ford dealers to get one.


Favorite Features

Leather, power moon roof, full dash, and nice body exterior lines., which makes it look like its moving when it's standing still! The dashboards cool blue lighting is very cool at night. The back seat is spacious and the trunk is big enough to lots of junk in it!


Suggested Improvements

A 5 or 6 speed transmission would be nice, even tho this one works very smoothly of course at 40 mpg, who can complain?

2010 Ford Focus Sedan SEL 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This car is truely the best kept secret in the car market. Fully loaded the sticker was 21k, with the 3000 rebate and dealer going down I got it for 17k. This car has it all, the SYNC system is awesome, the heated leather seats are amazing. For driving cars that cost twice as much in the past I am really happy with it. It is really at least worth checking out if you are in the market for a small car. You will probably fall in love with it like I did. To be honest I never even noticed them before I had one!


Favorite Features

SYNC, Moonroof, Leather Seats, Dash lights, and the dash layout. Really roomy car.


Suggested Improvements

Would be nice to have the keyless entry on the actual key and not a separate fob but I guess thats what I'm used to from driving much more expensive cars.
