The Focus is great for families like ours with one child, needing great gas mileage and comfort commuting and traveling.
The Focus SE has all the bells and whistles and more, at a very competitive price.
I still can't see paying over $20k for a compact car, and this one is well under that.
We got a 2011 with 23,000 on it, and because it was certified we got 1.9% financing as well.
That, in my opinion, was an excllent value.
The car is tight, plenty of headroom, a vacuous truck, comfortable back seat and all the creature comforts we have come to expect.
I also got cruise control, Sync, etc.
The appearance is very good - This is a good choice for comfort, value, and economy.
