Vehicle2012 Ford Focus SEL 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6AM)
ReviewLooks great ...very solid feel. Super seats, not sure I liked the BLACK plastic all over everything.....need possible tan options. It was just the right size. The handling is 1st class. The power was a little lacking....I am used to an accord v6 manual. I look forward to driving a high performance model. The car can certainly handle the extra power. Economy.......the read out said 30 mpg ...hopefully that will improve. Ford is onto a GREAT thing here. There was NO manual to be had anywhere to drive...It is only a 5 speed anyway ....only the auto is 6 speed.......WHAT WERE YOU THINKING FORD ???
Worst Features6 speed manual Better color interior choices.

Yes, you could have more power with a Turbo or a V6 but then you wouldn't be getting very good gas mileage and that's what this car was designed for - Good gas mileage with better than average power for the class.Report it

@trevc Have you checked reviews of the 5 speed manual though? It is getting rave reviews even if it is 'just' a 5.Report it
