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


I love the car, except that I have had the rear tires replaced once, and they're shot again. Dealer is telling me it needs an alignment. I'll see if that works. The rear tires keep getting cupped. Also, the car is dangerous to drive in snow; the rear does NOT want to follow the front. Perhaps that is also alignment- we'll see next winter. When it was going to snow, I drove my gas drinking pickup truck. Not everybody has that option. Other than that, and the headrests designed by the Marquis De Sade, I love the car. Great mileage; I'm all expressway, and a lead foot- 33-34 mpg at 75. On a road trip the car pushed 38. Nice.

Best Features

Good power, mpg, decent ride. Nice looking car.

Worst Features

Fix rear suspension issues! Get adjustment in the headrests to get my chin off my chest. Hard to drink a pop the way it pushes your head forward.
