2012 Ford Focus SEL 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 6AM)


6 months, 6000 miles on a 2012 focus sedan SE w/203A, SE sport package, 16 inch machined alloy wheels, & side graffics. The 6 spd auto is real smooth. Got use to placement of electronic shifter & its fast & convenient. Shutter was minor and stopped after 3000 miles.
It's glued to the road & brakes are excellent as is the paint job.

Driving includes some interstate, some country roads, some mountains, some city but not heavily trafficked. Depending on driving mix and how much I put my foot in it, it's getting a low of 38mpg to a high of 44mpg! Overall average at this time is 41.3. Amazing!

Most efficient, most power, most fun in Sport mode. Everything working perfectly.

Best Features

This car is really fun. Its extremely efficient, handles really well, stops beautifully, and the paint job pops. The seats are extremely comfortable and hold you in place. It needs good mirrors and it has them. It also does not have a gas cap.

Worst Features

The interior is black with silver. It could use a little color inside.
