2008 Ford Focus Sedan SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This isn't a bad little car. It isn't a 10 or even a 9. Now think of it. Bo was a 10. Like everyone else it should have a trunk release. How stupid can you be Ford. The seating is great for my short wife. She can see out rather well. I fit in just fine to and I'm 6' 235. The milage isn't what it should be. My wife just drives at around 60 and she hasn't gotten 30MPG yet like people on here are claiming. They should be able to get better than this with the poochy 4 cylinder. I have an old 95 Corrola that has 150000 on it and it get 37 MPG. Like I said this isn't a bad little car for the money but it isn't a 10.


Best Features

Sync, ride is not bad for small car.


Worst Features

Trunk release and better MPG. Interior is fairly cheap also.

2008 Ford Focus Sedan SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I must say that Ford has improved in building the vehicles. The ride is very comfortable and it gives the right gas mileage. The looks are cool and interior lights are awesome. The engine is very quiet compared to the older models of Focus. I chose Ford over Toyota and Nissan.


Best Features

Seating, engine, lights, music


Worst Features

We like our Focus. The mileage is 41 highway & 30 city, very good for an automatic. Have a squeak in suspenison is hand brake cable in hanger in front of rear axle. Ford has a fix a new grommet. We think it is a very good buy for the price. Looked at Toyota, Nissan, Vibe, Mazda

2008 Ford Focus Sedan S 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Since I purchased this vehicle I have averaged a consistant 37MPG over 13000 miles driven but I drive mostly highway. It is an automatic transmission and the ride for a compact is excellent. I can say that it is not a Honda Civic but it costs 6K less. I would say for the money there is no better buy on the market.


Best Features

Engine compartment arrangment. Ease of oil change.


Worst Features

Better fitting interior trim.
