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


I purchased my Focus in June of '08, after driving a gas guzzling minivan for 5 years. After looking at Toyotas, Hondas, Chevys and Mazdas, the Focus was just the best idea for cost and reliability. I'm at 17,500 miles and have no issues. The gas mileage got up to 41mpg highway, but also as low as 27mpg city. Being a musician and a sort of music junkie, it's just amazing how seamlessly my Zune works with Sync. It's a good looking car with lots of options and features; it just gets you where you need to go - in style.

Best Features

Sync, controls on the steering wheel, reliability, gas mileage, supportive seats, auto dimming rear view mirror, defrosters in the side mirrors, lots of pep...it's just a great car.

Worst Features

Dome lights for the back seat, interior trunk release and a little more legroom for the back seat.
