2009 Ford Focus SES 2dr Coupe (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


I bought my SES coupe a year ago and fell in love with it as soon as I test drove it. I drive a lot for my job so it just clicked over to 40k and it's still driving as well as the day I got it. The SYNC system is by far the best feature in this car: hands-free bluetooth and iPod controls with no voice-training required. The ambient lighting is a major plus, definitely adds some serious style to the car. The speakers sound better than any car I've heard, especially with the 8" sub package. Fuel economy is great, I'm averaging around 32-33 MPG on mostly back road driving. Overall an excellent car for your money - comparable to many luxury cars for under 20k

Best Features

SYNC, Ambient lighting, sound system, very sporty looks, gas mileage

Worst Features

No real complaints, but it needs an interior trunk release, and my SYNC system occasionally disconnects my phone, but that's more of a small annoyance. Also it would be nice to have the ambient lighting pulse with the music.
