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


I've had this car for over a month now (1250 miles) and love how well it handles. I love the manual trans and I'm comming from a BMW 328 CI manual! Gas milage is edging up with every fill up. Now avg 29 - 30 mpg only because it is fun to push it around corners and thru traffic. Very comfortable, quiet and user friendly. Sports package is a must! It's still new enough in my area to draw stares, smiles and an occasional nod.
So far looks to be a great choise!

Best Features

5 Sp manual, handling, styling, drivability, quiet cabin and comfort.

Worst Features

The gas, break and clutch pedals are just a tad to close together. Bore out the 2 liter to a 2.2 and drop in a 6 speed. Just a tad more grunt would make this car stellar for the cost!

Hey - Hey Lets not forget that we are discussing FMC's resurection here...this is an awesome compact entry into the race, and in my mind it wins. Please have someone spell-check this...
