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


I swore off small cars for 25 years after driving a Ford Escort in the 80's. I went back after gas prices went up to $3/gallon. After driving a Focus for 2 weeks I discovered this car is a lot of fun to drive. Handling is great, performance good and exhaust is tuned to sound "throaty" when accelerating. SYNC feature, heated leather seats and ambient lighting enhance the experience. After driving a small suv that averaged 16 mpg, filling up the Focus is a lot easier on my wallet. I normally drive 125 miles per week. After the first 2 weeks, I am up to 500 miles because I enjoy the ride so much.

Best Features

Heated leather seats. SYNC. Kids love ambient lighting. Trunk space was surprisingly large.

Worst Features

Interior lighting is a bit sparse. Could also use a coin holder.
