My Second Focus

2012 Ford Focus SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


This is my second Focus, having previously owned a ZX3 Hatchback that I loved. This car is light years ahead of the old one in every way. It feels like a car costing at least twice as much, very refined, very quiet and comfortable. I bought the car in Minnesota and promptly drove it over 1,400 miles home to Florida, and in over 26 hours of driving my back never bothered me, which is about as big an endorsement for those new seats as I can come up with (I get back pains very easily). The steering is very precise, the shifter is BMW-like without any slop, the brakes (even though I have drums in the back) are excellent.

Best Features

The seats and the very well-designed steering wheel.

Worst Features

Tires a little too hard and noisy (my 2006 had the same problem), when I wear these out, I will shop for something other than Continentals. Only comes with front floor mats, which I thought was a little cheap of Ford.
