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


I haven't had the car very long but it's an incredibly impressive car for the price. I have a 5 speed SES. The gas mileage has always been over 32 mixed no matter what. The manual is easy to drive and kind of fun. Love the dash and layout. It's very responsive and easy/fun to drive. Good comfortable ride, handles nicely. It's an all around great car for the money and they've proven themselves to be reliable. Very happy. Ambient lighting is nice and power moonroof is not cheap. Nice attention to safety. Great wheel and driver controls.

Best Features

Sync is awesome. I use an 8 GB thumb drive, it works great. Phone is in the pocket the whole time. Sound system is pretty good. Interior lighting, nice wheels and spoiler. Sharp little car with lots of fun toys for less than a base Civic or Corolla.

Worst Features

Not much really. Trunk pop button would be nice but no biggie, and a better floor for the trunk is about it. Maybe better cup holders? Nothing major at all.
