2008 Ford Focus SES CoupeReview

2008 Ford Focus Ses Coupe/manual Transmission —

I have owned all sorts of vehicles....Dodge...Ford...Toyota...Chevy...Mazda and BMW. I have never, ever enjoyed a vehicle as much as I enjoy this one. The cabin is SUPER quiet, even when shifting gears(can barely hear the engine)and the shifting is smooth as butter. It handles awesome, the ride is very soft, has plenty of power, the seats are very comfortable, the Microsoft SYNC easily plays all my Artists on my Wolverine 5160(160GB). It took about 5 minutes or so to index all the files, but when it finished, I asked it to play whatever artist I wanted and it responded beautifully. Hands-Free phone conversation is another Gem with this vehicle. The person on the other end can hear your voice perfectly. This is the real Bluetooth! I have the Audiophile system and music sounds awesome with the built in Subwoofer in the trunk. Also, Ambient lighting is great as well. Do yourself a favor. If you want to get a great vehicle that is inexpensive, but has quality to boot, please look into this car. You will not be disappointed. Did I mention that this car gets around 35 miles per gallon as well. I am so happy about this car....Can Ya Tell? It's perfect in every way.

Pros: I've already said them.

Cons: NONE WHATSOEVER!!

Gas Saver And Dependability — I absolutely love everything about this car. When we first bought it, we were a little afraid of buying a Ford product, but now I am not afraid. This car has been trouble free from day one. I would recommend this Focus to anyone looking for reliable and cheap transportation.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Reliable, cheap on gas, roomy for a compact, good visibility

Cons: It's a compact, so it's been sufficient when the kids were small. Now we might be looking for something larger

If You Want Fuel Economy And Reliability. This Is The Car. — I have had this car for a year and am very happy. Getting 33-38 mpg on the highway which is why I bought this car. Very solid car. Looking forward to seeing the 2012 Focus, is much sportier looking.

2008 Ford Focus SE Review
Angie096 says:
A good New Driver car. Simple, not too fast and generally aesthetically pleasing at a cheap price. I was a big fan of the color changing LEDs in the cupholders and footwells. Mine had a clicking strut and a front passenger brake that loved to stay loose. Very rough ride on stock low profile tires, the seats werent very comfortable. Very good in front end collisions at 60+ mph, it only sent me to the hospital with a very bruised sternum, and the car sent itself to the scrapyard. Would recommend as a learners car

Power Ranked 2007 Subaru Legacy 2.5i Special Edition better.
"The Legacy has more horsepower. That, and combined with the AWD itll outrace and out-tow any Ford Focus. "
Handling Ranked 2007 Subaru Legacy 2.5i Special Edition better.
"The AWD and wider body let me take harder turns at faster speeds. I believe the Legacy makes you feel like youre in direct control; no fighting the steering wheel. Instant response."
