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


I drive 50/50 city and the highway, and I average 32 mpg after 2 months. It's quick and responsive for a 4 cylinder, and I love all the technology gadgets. Didn't think I'd love Sync or Sirius so much. It is nice and quiet so I can hear them both well. I tested small cars from Toyota and Honda, but both are uncomfortable cars for big and tall people (Toyota is terrible for long legs and Honda is terrible for head room). I can see my car from my office window, and to my surprise, this car turns a lot of heads. I think the leg room could still be better, but I'm glad I bought this car.

Best Features

Speed control, onboard mileage calculator, Sync, quiet, zippy, turns heads.

Worst Features

Trade one of the cigarette lighters for a plug, improve leg room, add an outside temperature gauge. Door cup holders too small (center console cup holders fine).
