Review

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

I was driving a Ford 250 4X4 diesel and when fuel got to 5.25/gallon bought a Ford Focus SE loaded for beater car and love it. Tried Toyota, Altima, and prefered the Focus. Great car for price.

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.

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


Review

It has been a fun drive so far. I love to take turns at fast speeds, and not hear a tire squeak. It has plenty of power and can be pretty zippy.


Best Features

SYNC, hand controls on steering wheel, Sirius radio -- all great features. I like the look of the dash and the dials at night are awesome.


Worst Features

Auto headlights should be standard, as it is really the biggest thing lacking to make this car feel more luxurious. Trunk release latch inside the car would also be nice.

This car does exactly what I expected it to do. Delivers very acceptable ride and performance with exceptional mpg. No issues or dissapointments. Just utilitarian transportation at a very reasonble expense.

Mileage


Worst Features

Interior a little spartan but thats what I paid for.
