2008 Ford Focus SES 2dr Coupe (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


This is a great little car. I never really considered a Ford Focus, but with gas prices going up and up, I decided to test drive one and loved it. I got a black 2 door coupe SES with black cloth and everything besides a roof. The interior design is very nice for a $17,000 car. The white gauges with indigo blue looks nice at night. The car handles very well and the dash is set up nicely. I currently have about 500 miles on the car and am averaging about 26 mpg with mostly city driving, it should get better when the car is broken in more.

Best Features

Fresh new look. Drives and handles like a more expensive car. Gas mileage is great and interior is nicely redone. Sync is very cool. Car is a blast to own, best bang for the buck by far!

Worst Features

Needs a little more power, perhaps the 2.4 liter with 160 HP.
