For teenagers, Adults don't bother
By cherrie1 on


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


I bought used 2009 for $9500 w/26000 miles in 2011, under TMV, so I thought I had a deal.
However, I would not buy this again.
The comfort level is very low with hardly any leg room.
It does very poorly in certain weather conditions.
Caught in a windstorm, I was forced to drive in the fast lane bcuz the slow lane was near deep embankments and the car behaved like it really wanted to flip.
It also does poorly going around sharp curves.
It now squeaks after that windstorm, and I'm told it's a bodyshop issue.
Also, repairs on this can be $$.
I pd $300 for a brake job.
The defrost is horrible on this, takes way too long.
Ok on gas, but just a teenage recreation car IMO.

Best Features

Gas sipper, and will get u from pt. A to pt. B.

Worst Features

More room, needs more sturdiness, needs a trunk release in the car, annoying lights come on when door opens
