2012 Ford Focus Titanium 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6AM)

Review

Not like any Focus I've ever been in before.
Outstanding quality of materials throughout.
Looks and feels equivalent to a Mercedes -- no joke.
Feels "big", solid, and quiet while you drive, but has speedy performance when you want it.

Best Features

Quality of materials; excellent stereo if you can figure out how to operate it.

Worst Features

1) The dashboard leaves you no place to store any papers, maps, or anything. No storage in the console unless you open the compartment or put something in the cupholder. 2) Gas mileage on first full tank was 32 mpg, mostly highway at 60-70 mph. This was a little disappointing considering I was actively trying for good mileage. 3) Steering wheel controls for the entertainment system are counterintuitive. Must use voice commands (slow) or the touchscreen (distracting). Better MFT programming would help, but better design on the right button pad would help more. 4) Bottom cushion of power seat should offer tilt adjustment. 5) Owner's manual is poorly organized and not very helpful.
