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


Let me start off by saying I had a 2007 Ford Focus and put 23,000 miles on it and thought it was a great car. Then the 2008 Focus came out, test drove it and it was mine. This car drives very well, and a noticeable difference from 07 to 08 in both performance and handling. You also sit high up in the seat, and have great viewing angles. Another noticeable difference in the 08 is that its very quiet. Highway speeds of about 70-75 the car has barley any road noise. All in all this car feels like a much more expensive car when driving and looks really great too. I would definitely recommend a test drive!

Best Features

Sync - simply amazing and works great(surprising as its made by Microsoft) Like the design of the interior/exterior, much more modern that previous years and car actually has character unlike some of the other small sedans. Ambient lighting is pretty cool, unnecessary of course, but still cool.

Worst Features

There is always room for improvement, but Ford is going in the right direction and I'm glad to say American cars are finally catching up. Oh, Ford could get rid of the fake air vents on the side, as they are kind of cheesy.
