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


I traded in my focus for a Toyota Rav4 this weekend, because I can't take a chance on the transmission again. It was overhauled 2 times already by ford, and they never considered putting a new transmission in the car. It is starting to slip again, and so the time came to trade it in. I loved the car with the sync. and other features. Ford has to work on all the transmission problems with all its vehicles.

Best Features

Sync., ride, the layout of the interior. A real pleasure to drive.

Worst Features

Fix the transmission problems. I know i'm not the only one. I've read other writeups.
