So far so good

2010 Ford Focus SES 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Greatest Car I have owned yet. I am a reletively young auto owner. I have owned a 2000 Mercury Sable, 2000 VW Jetta, a 2007 Ford Focus SES, and now my 2010 focus ses. It has been nothing but a joy to own. Looks great in black, ford did a great job in the outter accents on the ses model. Interior adds sense of sophistication which is hard to come by in a compact sedan. Black leather, ambient lighting, and icy blue display is a great touch as well. Not the greatest acceleration but gets the job done. Handling is less tight than I expected, was hoping for something a bit stiffer.
Favorite feature has to be the sync system and premium 8 speaker and subwoofer upgrade. This thing really kicks. Cruising around town on a hot summer day with the moon roof open and your tunes rocking has never been so enjoyable.
Overall I love this car. I would suggest adding 5 or 6 speed automatic as opposed to the outdated 4. Acceleration is lacking, engine will whine high during spirited accelleration.
