2009 Ford Focus Sedan SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I have been driving an 09 Focus for sometime now.
I own both a Chevy and Ford, and thought this would be a good car to run around town in and commute with.
I thought one of these cheap eco/gas freindly car, would be a good idea. I am re-thinking this concept.
What you gain in MPGs, you loose in comfort, power, peace of mind, etc.
I would only recommend this car commuter car, if you can tolerate the road noise.
It is noisy! The road noise is horrid, the brakes are soft and slow to respond.
We had to drive this car from NC to El Paso, Texas.
It was the most uncomfortable ride ever.
Look elsewhere if you want to feel and be more comfortable, its worth trading the MPGs for a few $'s.


Best Features

No real favorites, great for running to walmarts and not worrying if it gets banged up by others.


Worst Features

Sound proofing the car from all the road noise. Tighten the steering. More responsive brakes.

2009 Ford Focus Sedan SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Bought new in Feb. '09.
Now closing in on 30K miles.
The auto isn't exactly quick but it gets up to speed fast enough.
Very comfortable car and easy to drive.
Great on the highway.....80mph is about 2900rpm only.
Gas mpg close to 30mpg overall.
Higway 35mpg.

Just a nice easy car to drive that's also comfortable with a pretty civilized ride.
I love the leather wrapped steering wheel/cruise control package that my SE came with .

I also like the looks.
No problems at all thus far although I do hear a slight rattle coming from the left rear but it's not nearly audible enough to bother me or be that noticeable.
The stock Hankooks were lame and lasted 25K miles. New Kumhos-better!


Best Features

gas mileage, leather wrapped steering wheel, comfort, light feel, easy to drive, great low rpm engine on highway, large trunk.


Worst Features

rear light for back seat area

Review

I have had my 09 Focus for about 2 months and its great.
The gas milage is really good and I have had no problems with this car.
The SYNC system is a plus but at times the voice active comands won't resgiter.
I love being able to use my cell phone hands free while I am driving. The USB port is great because I can listen to my Ipod and charge it too.
The area where the USB port is located is very dark at night (it is not illumnated when you turn on the headlights). I find that after I have been driving for a while my knee starts to hurT.
It could be because I am only 5 feet tall. Great car for the money!


Best Features

SYNC, Heated leather seats, USB port, Curise control, Audio controls mounted on steering wheel


Worst Features

Trunk release button inside car, Dome light, illumnated USB port area, Electric seats

2009 Ford Focus Sedan SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This car has proved to be worth every penny I spent. From the fun Sync system to my 40 mpg (all highway driving), I couldn't ask for more in an economical car. I have driven 40,000 miles with only routine maintenance and I just replaced the tires. I would highly recommend this car for anyone who has long commutes daily.


Best Features

Sync, Built in Satellite Radio, High MPG, Fun Drive, Sleek Dash Board, & Low Maintenance Costs


Worst Features

Interior Fabric, Interior Trunk Release Button, & Back Seat Dome Light
