It gets great gas mileage, good ride, pretty quiet for a small car.
It's a great car! audio plays really nice and has a setting to adjust depending on the outside volume. Seats are comfy. Large trunk. 3 people can fit comfortably in the back instead of the usual sardines in a can feeling. Steering/turns are great. Brakes really well.
I can say now its been 2 months and I love my 2010 Ford Focus SES. It is fully loaded and no one even mentioned to me about the built in subwoofer in the truck. I am a lover of music and it fits my style perfectly. I can also say it is comfortable sitting in long drives. I also have a 2009 Ford Fusion .. ( Well the Husband drives it) And I love my Focus more. The most impressive thing to me from this sporty little car is the gas mileage is awesome compared to my old SUV, I had prior to this vehicle. I drive more city and amazingly, I am getting 24-25 city mileage. Can not complain on the gas and the sleek look on the car. I love the clean black interior, I have leather and it is sharp to me compared to a couple Honda's I was looking at before I fell in love with this car. It may not be a Mercedes or BMW but for a Mother of 2 young children. It fits my lifestyle great! As well as it is rated just as safe as the Ford Fusion so to me that is a piece of mind. The new sync system and sirius radio rocks, makes driving with such simplicity with one touch. I hope anyone who doubted Ford like I did in the past will give this car a chance. Our next purchase will defiantly be another Ford for sure.
