2011 Ford Focus Sedan SES 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I bought this car summer of 2013 with 36,200 miles on it. Fast forward over two years later, i am at 90,600 miles and have had absolutely NO issues with this car mechanically! Smooth ride, great on gas, and love the upgraded stereo that my focus has. The only problem I have had are the 17" 16 spoke wheels. The finish is peeling off badly on all 4 wheels. I will soon either have to get them replaced, or paint them myself (though that may go horribly). I also wish my car had the 5 speed manual transmission. The 4 speed auto is just a little sluggish at times. Overall would recommend this car 9.5/10

2011 Ford Focus Sedan SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I love driving my focus. It grips the road nicely and its light frame makes for easy lane changes and highway entries. This car has some ZIP to it. I would feel comfortable driving this across country due to its reliability and comfort. The interior doesn't feel cheap. I expected a little better fuel economy, but its ok. For a small car, I don't feel low to the ground.

2011 Ford Focus Sedan SEL 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

This car goes way beyond expectations we have used this car as a get way car (toilet papering) and the stability and traction control are amazing it hugs the road great and the car goes the way you point the well unlike leading competitors such as the corOlla my focus has 87k+ miles and still running like a champ well built and economical design lacks some comodines like power seats but the handling is spurb compared to other cars in its segment

2011 Ford Focus Sedan SEL 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I've had my focus for two years now. I bought it used with 11,000 miles on it. Now I'm at 50,000 miles and have still had no trouble. This is a car I would recommend to everyone.
I did extensive research when buying my car. I narrowed my list down to the Focus, Fiesta, Nissan Versa, Hyundai Elantra and Scion XD. The Focus came at the best price, for the best reliability ratings, was the most fun to drive, and was the best looking.
The Sync program isn't the most efficient system of all time, but it is a nice convenience. Occasionally it struggles, but anything electronic has it's occasional lag.
This car is great, I swear by it and plan to drive it for the next ten years.


Best Features

The Ford Sync program, how the lights inside my car can change colors, the sun roof, the fact that it's blue, my pretty onyx colored wheels.


Worst Features

The Sync program could be better, but it was great at the time.

2011 Ford Focus Sedan SEL 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

3.5 years & 52,000 miles later, this is an update to my review of the 2011 Ford Focus SEL. Nothing has really changed. At first I thought of the Ford Focus as a "starter" car that lacked features so I was a bit reluctant to even look at it but I like to see things for myself so I checked it out anyway. It has heated leather seats, power windows & locks, sunroof, premium sound system w/ 8" factory subwoofer & Microsoft Sync. There is also a GPS navigation option, but my SEL does not have it. It's a nice compact car to cruise around in and take road trips. Aside from scheduled maintenance I have not had to do anything to this car. I can't really say anything bad about it, other than I wish there was the option for the 2.0 ecoBoost engine in the SEL because 4-cylinder acceleration is very weak compared to 4.4 v8 BMW & 4.6 v8 Lincoln we had before....and we really don't care for the Focus ST. Our next Ford will probably be a Lincoln MKZ 3.7
