My New Focus SEL
By l_wnc on
2012 Ford Focus SE 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Car is getting excellent gas mpg, better than anticipated--between 35 and 40+ mph on a regular basis. This is why I bought the car! Began to achieve this mileage when I learned to let the transmission do its job and not push the gear shifting or having a lead foot when starting from a full stop.
My Sync: it took a little while & reading manual several times to figure out button pushing sequence. Car has great luxurious features and solid feel. Only two complaints: (1) Can't place headrest down flush to seat top or tilt it back; (2) Sometimes feel a small vibration from underneath in 2nd gear--need to get that checked out.
Styling; mph; interior comfort; luxurious features; ambient lighting; plenty of room in hatch area for storage (will hold an animal crate); ECO-mode; and zippyness when needed.
Head rest design; Radio--need a simple, fast method of switching back and forth from FM to AM and running a simple seek/scan; need mudflaps on rear to avoid road dirt from splashing up on back window/hatch.
