I purchased a 2010 Focus S, 5 speed manual trans. The car is comfortable, it handles securely, fuel mpg so far is averaging 29.1 mpg in a mix of driving, about 50/50 city highway, it keeps going up the more I drive it. It shifts smoothly and the engine has a nice sound when revved. For $12,894 there was nothing even close to it. Honda fit looks like a small clown car for $18- 21k, no thanks. My car seats 4 very comfortably, 5 in a pinch. The trunk is huge. Standard PL,AC,CD,traction control and stability control and keyless entry even on the base S model, all STANDARD. And best of all its American and Ford didn't take the govt extortion $. Looks great in Sangria red. I'm pleased for what I paid
Keyless entry,AC,PL,CD all standard equipment, also Knowing that Ford is not beholden to our corrupt federal government for a bailout.
Tighten the handling/suspension, could be a little more sporty. Otherwise it nails the segment mission profile perfectly.
