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


I have owned this car for little less than 6 months after acquiring it from a family relative. The car has treated me well so far through the later part of the winter, spring and now into summer. Gas mileage is decent, comfort is excellent, highway noise is minimal, drivetrain noise is minimal. I have an automatic which shifts smoothly for the most part but is jerky when under hard quick acceleration. The car is unfortunately terribly slow (even compared to my 94 VW GTI 2.0l). It keeps me out of trouble though. Handling is pretty good for stock suspension. And lastly the interior build is decent, the seats could use more support and better materials.

Best Features

Heated seats, good around town, and Sirius satellite is great for long trips.

Worst Features

Improved seat quality (both material and bolster support), better/more powerful engine, more refined automatic transmission.
