2010 Ford Focus SEL 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Purchased last Jan and drove it about 100 miles on salt covered roads after a snowy day. When I got home, I noticed that the paint in front of the rear wheel wells was chipping off. It continued to get worst every time I drove it in the snow. The dealer repainted this area and placed 8 pieces of clear plastic on the doors and fenders to try and prolong it from happening again per the Ford TSB. If you live in a area where they sand or salt the roads in the winter and expect the paint to be durable and long lasting, you should avoid this vehicle.


Best Features

Sync, USB, Heated seats


Worst Features

Redesign body shape to protect paint from road damage, power seat option, navigation system

2010 Ford Focus S 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I find my 2010 Ford Fucus to be a ver good little car, except fot the Gas Millage. I had a 2006 Chev Optra Wagon, 4 cylinder automatic, & @ about 7->70 miles per hour on the highway got a consistent 38>42 miles per gallon. With my 2010 Ford Focus I only, @ the same speed get @ the most around 34>36 miles per gallon. My mileage in the city is better with the Focus, but still not even close what Ford Motor Company says it should be getting. I was told, & according to what Ford says that I would get 35 miles per gallon in the city & 44>48 on the highway. All in all, it is a real solid little car, & really like it except for the gas millage I am getting.


Best Features

All in all, a very good reliable very well built smaller car, & am happy with it in most areas.


Worst Features

The 2010 Ford Focus should have no less than a 6 speed automatic transmission.

2010 Ford Focus SEL 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Purchased a new 2010 Ford focus SEL sedan. Liked the exterior styling. Interior design pretty cool except for impractical cup holder location. Drove the car 13K miles when the "Wrench" light came on and lost power control to accelerator. This happened 3 times with Ford not able to do anything because "Engine" had not come on and no DTC codes where there to read. Set out on vacation only to have it happen again, this time Eng light did come on. Took to dealer. They said they knew all along it was the Throttle Position Sensor but could not do anything until code verified this. Also found out that the parts have been on back order for several weeks. Ford still has not issued a service bulletin?


Best Features

Ride feels stable at all speed ranges.


Worst Features

Lack of throttle response should be addressed. Cup holders made for those with short arms. Would like to have tilt steering wheel option.

2010 Ford Focus SEL 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This car is built well, rides quietly and is as at home on the freeway at 75 mph, as it is driving in the city doing 15 mph. It is entirely possible to get 40 mpg on a flat highway, and usually 30 mpg in town or more. The seats are comfortable and firm. The engine is quiet and has plenty of power for all kinds of driving. It drives as smoothly as any car twice its size, yet it is fun to drive, and easy to handle. Ford did a wonderful job on the electric steering -- it feels just like rack and pinion pump steering. This car is a sleeper. Few people realize just how good this car drives, or they would be standing in line at the Ford dealers to get one.


Best Features

Leather, power moon roof, full dash, and nice body exterior lines., which makes it look like its moving when it's standing still! The dashboards cool blue lighting is very cool at night. The back seat is spacious and the trunk is big enough to lots of junk in it!


Worst Features

A 5 or 6 speed transmission would be nice, even tho this one works very smoothly of course at 40 mpg, who can complain?
