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


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
