2008 Ford Focus — The 2008 Ford Focus is sleek and full of technology; however, it lacks power and speed. When taking off in the new 2008 Focus make sure to have plenty of room to make it up to speed. What it lacks in power it makes up for in style and technology. The future is small compact gas saving high tec cars like the 2008 Ford Focus.

Pros: Saves on gas

Cons: Slow take off

Ford Focus — What a fun car to drive. It has great get-up and go for a little 4-banger. Microsoft Synch is a great addition and comes in very handy when I need to make a call while driving. The red paint is nicely done and the interior still smells like it's new. I'd recommend anyone looking for a compact car to check out the Focus.

Pros: very good fuel economy, great options

Cons: small size

Foci — It's just a decent little car. Acceleration is good. Sound is decent. Rides smoothly. Has a sharp look inside and out. And for the price, I don't think there is much out there that can rival it. It's fun to drive, and great on the pocket with today's gas prices.

Pros: Look, feel, gas mileage, price tag

Cons: Crome fender addon, no sync, no cruise control

New Body Style — Best car on gas you could buy without buying a hybird. I get a little over 35 mpg. I love the new body style the are using on the 2008 now, it's so much nicer than the old focus. Interior is sweet at night, i have the lighting in my car so just a click of a button and the floor and cup holders lights up, i have a choice between 7 colors! One thing is nice about the color of mine, you don't see if very often. In case you wnna know what color mine is it's called vapor silver. All around so far it's been a good car, i couldn't ask for anything better.

Pros: Appearance is ten times nicer!

Cons: frozen ice on back window/trunk.. can't open trunk than have to break ice to open that damn thing

Great Money Saving Car!! — The car is very spacious, Plenty of cup holders, easy to clean and keep clean. No problems with performance, but its not a race car so I am not beating on the poor thing. Yet it does pick up and go if you are in a hurry. Go take one for a test drive!! You will fall in love with it!! FYI saves tons of money when it comes to filling up with gas, gas lasts quiet awhile!!

Pros: amazing gas mil., tons of cup holders, great storage spaces!!

Cons: i feel like a soccer mom driving the thing  :p

2008 Ford Focus Se Coupe Dark Metallic Blue W/ Sand Colored Interior — I love it! Great acceleration, breaking is good considering i don't have the ABS system and handling is great, i don't feel like i'm gonna go off the road if i'm driving a bit too fast. It's a brand new car so there is no maintenance to be taken care of. I love the interior and the exterior stylings. It's a great gas conserver at about 34-35 MPGs. Overall a very fun and safe car to drive, has lots of airbags and many extras for the somewhat little money i paid for it. Great buy!

Pros: SYNC system, CD player, power windows/locks, many airbags, blocks outside noise well, roomy

Cons: Haven't really found anything yet

2008 Focus Ses Coupe - Great Car! —

I like cars that are fun to drive - cars that, in time, become a friend. I previously owned a 1991 Honda Civic Si - a real clunker by most standards, but I loved that car so much that I actually drove it to places I *wanted it to see* before hauling it to the junk yard. I can picture myself doing this with the Focus in the distant future. Its a visually stunning car, aside from the unfortunate backside. I got the Silver Frost exterior and Medium Stone (cloth) interior. (Not by choice really...I wanted black inside and out, but was unable to find one locally that had all the features I wanted.) They look great in all available exterior colors, but the Medium Stone interior really is just bleh. The driver-side dash is sporty and really cool, but the stereo/functional area is the same (boring, but very practical) setup as other 2008 Ford models. The ambient lighting is pretty cool, but not nearly as cool as I expected it to be. The lights are bright, but very small and placed awkwardly. I opted for the Audiophile stereo system and have absolutely no regrets about that decision. The stereo ROCKS, and the in-dash 6-disc changer is very convenient. Performance-wise, it is great for a compact car - its not a sports car, so don't expect it to act like one. However, you can take those turns a little faster than usual, just for fun. The 2008 Focus' engine blows other similar compacts out of the water, and still gets 35mpg - though, you'd have to drive it like an old granny to get that kind of mpg. I average around 25mpg because I drive it like cars are "meant" to be driven. ;) I was quite surprised by the build quality of this car. It appears as though Ford put the quality of their super-duty trucks into their cars. It is solid as a rock, and you will *not* be blown into the median when you pass a semi on the highway. It feels very safe and very solid. Overall, I'm really happy with it. Hit an open road, put the moon roof down, turn the ambients on, crank the stereo, and enjoy yourself!

Pros: superb stereo, good looks, solid and safe, fun to drive

Cons: ambient lighting is a little disappointing

Well Balanced Car. — Comfortable yet sporty. Awesome handling, pleasure to drive. Gorgeous audio. Comfortable seats that keeps you at the right place even when driving a bit crazier through the corners. Enough space at the back seats. Practical boot. Front looks very nice, the back is worse, but still doesn't look that bad - tail lights looks a bit like a cheap tunning version though work well. Too new to talk about reliability.

Pros: Handling, practical, comfortable, sporty.

Cons: Noisier (and a bit thirsty) in high speeds (140kmh+)

What Will They Do Next — I love the fact that ford was not shy to through some good products at the ST. Names like Mc pherson, brembo, recaro and many more. Ford also manage to get all this cool stuff to work well together. Well done

Pros: the price and all the name brands

Cons: a bit sluggish on pull away
