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


First, I want to thank everyone who put a review for this car online... when I was looking, I really wanted a hatch (Honda Fit). However, after driving the Fit, I was very disappointed and decided to keep looking. We drove home past a Ford dealership, and I remembered all the rave reviews of the Focus (I wanted something small for gas mileage). They had 3 Focus-es on the lot, and we test drove the SES. I absolutely loved the car - it handles better than the Fit, turns more smoothly, accelerates faster, and is very easy to drive and understand. (Sadly, no hatchback or "magic" seats - figured those were not things I'd actually use on a daily basis.) 1 year later & I still LOVE this car!

Best Features

Synch (almost didn't get, but glad I did), gas mileage, handling, pep - love just about everything to do with the car.

Worst Features

Interior trunk release (maybe this was fixed in '09?). Noticed the 2009 got rid of the large triangular "thing" by the front wheels. Other than those - a 4 door hatchback!!
