Big mistake

Asked by Nov 07, 2007 at 11:32 AM about the 2008 Ford Focus

Question type: General

Who designed this thing because I think they really missed the mark here. Why did they bring back the Focus coupe? I just don't see it being a success. Seems pointless. My guess is that they are trying to mimic the success of the Civic coupe.....not going to happen.

And BMWs are front wheel drive...right.

I don't mean to crash this thread but I represent Ford and I wanted to clarify some of the specifications listed. The standard 2008 Focus 2.0L engine (which is available in most of the US) generates 140hp@6000rpm and 136lb-ft@4250rpm of torque. The engine output listed is for the Duratec 20E PZEV 2.0L engine which is in vehicles sold in MA, CA, NY, VT and ME. Also, the 5-speed manual transmission is standard and the 4-speed automatic is optional. To view all current Ford vehicle specifications please visit www.fordvehicles.com. Finally, there are many reasons that go into design choices and the easiest way to provide Ford with your feedback is to visit www.customersaskford.com. Enter "feedback". Your comments will be forwarded to the proper department for review. Thanks.

I just bought one, and I love it.. keep this in mind. My last two cars were mustangs. I have plenty of power, but its not a sports car- its not. It gets me 32 mpg average, I drive the five speed- nicely I might add. I have more trunk space then I have ever had, more room in the back, four doors for loading my son it the car seat, I can tell it to read me my text messages- its bad A$$. Who would say its not practical- hell ford will bring me 5 gallons of gas for free if I run out.. and that equates to 160 miles. On a full tank it says 445 miles to Empty.. that is from Phoenix to San Diego with no stops buddy.. they nailed it on the focus. -Joe

If you want to see a Focus with more "balls" , try out a Euro model !! It seems anything made in Europe has better fit and finish , as well as power . Take a look at the Australian Fords too ( small cars offered with huge V8's) , better performance and better built.
