Every aspect of this car is designed to focus on the driving experience.

7 Jul

For $31,000 delivered it was close to what a Focus ST would cost and definitely in a higher class of "sports car" IMO.

5 Oct

Nothing rattled or creaked.

21 Feb

Both of these woke-up the car without adding much noise/volume.

19 Dec

The rear view mirror shake is a big part of the fit/finish issues as the Ford dealership was never able to resolve it to my satisfaction.

20 Nov

though is not a deal breaker and my plan is to refill it with some Royal Purple Synchromax fluid, which is supposed to help with the buzz.

18 Jun

N/A

10 Sep

More road noise with independent suspension.

22 Oct

Being the first model year of the refresh, there are some other minor issues like rattles,

14 Dec

It FELT cheap (brand new, rattled and squeaked, and only had about 15 miles on the odo).

12 Dec

2 year update - no squeaks, rattles or problems.

23 Jun

In the cold winter months, the interior window panes and the middle of the dashboard rattled constantly.

5 Oct

First let me start off by saying I personally was never a Ford Mustang fan.

20 Jun

This car would be so much better if Ford was responsible and issued recalls for the faulty evaporator.

19 Dec

However, if it rains or the temperatures are cool/cold (below 50-degrees), the rear end gets loose!

10 Feb

Only downside is that there is no spare tire for standard equipment, only a bottle of stop leak and a cheap air compressor which are totally useless.

31 Oct

Drive belt damaged due to locking up compressor. Replaced.

10 Nov

The problem was the Evaporator.

15 Jan

N/A

11 May

though with a new bumper, done the engine repairs and added new emblems, an aftermarket hood, added white leather OEM seats.

2 Jun

though unfortunately it used to be a rental car in Hawaii so it had bad rust, water spots, a loose bumper, a blown head gasket and a leaking valve and some other problems for which was not the car's fault.

31 Oct

Hood alignment and bumper alignment should be better. 4.

4 Jan

During the first service paint on the passenger side rear fender was chipped and dealer repainted the car.

The 2008 Ford Focus SE, Vapor Grey with highest trim level, chrome package.

22 Jun

Currently looking for a new car and every Focus I've test driven has been wonderful!

24 Feb

The 2008 focus coupe manual transmission is an abolutely amazing piece of mechanical engineering.

11 Feb

My 2008 Focus SE 5-speed manual got great gas mileage, never needed a clutch in 250K miles, worked great as a commuter and Uber/Lyft vehicle.

15 Mar

We've used the Focus as a family car for over three years and have had zero issues.

16 Apr

I LOVE the Focus because we went for a drive and got 36 mpg!

8 Jun

I love my ford focus, it's stylish yet contemporary.

3 Jan

If I need to pass a slowpoke car, of which there are plenty on the roads I travel, my pretty little red Focus jumps into action and gets me past the car and back into my lane without worry.

22 Jun

The Focus SES Model styling is an eye catcher and it is quite responsive, has good pickup, is comfortable and roomy, provides supportive seating, and the trunk space is substantial for it's class.

11 Jan

I personally like the new exterior Focus styling FAR better than the old Focus design.

27 Apr

This car does have a lot of road noise while on the highway and has is the worst car i have driven when parked in snow.

11 May

This car had a front end issue with the swaybar bushings making noise,

6 Mar

The engine makes too much noise and the driving is just pathetic

12 Nov

Interior feels cheap, road noise not a plus, acceleration better than 2007

13 Aug

For both cars, the transmission was faulty and we had to bring them in to the dealer a couple of times for a "fix".

18 Jun

but expect some issues with suspension and for sure the motor mount will fail after 100k, but that is a very cheap and easy fix.

4 Dec

It's hard to imagine they build vehicles that have major failures like that timed so perfectly for them!

Its simple yet stylish interior lets you focus on what your there to (drive) not play with you navigation system or you duel heating zone controls.

24 Jun

No road noise.

24 Oct

but I've had no issues with mine whatsoever other than minor interior squeaks and rattles which is more likely than not due to the fact the car was owned by someone who lived on a dirt road waaaay off the beaten path in WY.

19 Jan

Everything inside was made of a poor quality plastic that seemed to crack just from the vibration of the car.

12 Jun

The only problem I have had with the car is a noisy rear end which the dealer replaced under warranty within the first year.

7 Jun

While driving long distances the road noise can be quite tiresome,

24 Jul

This vehicle has also developed some suspicious rattles during its limited 4700 miles, including weird A/C noises.

25 Jun

Had a horrible howling noise from the rear end in less than 5000 miles which was replaced.

21 Nov

6 CD stereo is dynamite, as is the throaty groan from the exhaust.

27 Aug

N/A

6 Aug

it is NOT injector noise

28 Mar

Only repairs are front brake calipers (self-inflicted SCCA racing casualty) and alternator and battery.

26 Feb

So far all I have had to replace was the battery and the alternator which for me was super easy and took like 5 minutes total in labor.

29 Mar

Warranty was denied cost me 4500), the car refused to start 5 times (in 4 of the cases the engine wasnt turning over, battery only died once), torque converter failed, a fuel pump gave out, brakes (disks) needed to be replaced.

12 May

It has cowl shake.

12 Mar

The car rattled from every seam in the vehicle, the cd changer had multiple problems, and Fords Service Dept is basically useless.

18 Mar

The engine is also unrefined, could run a little smoother and less noisy.

12 Mar

When I am rolling the window down or up there is this very LOUD squeeking noise.

4 Mar

Ford should give their customers the choice if they want that. Some minor quality issues : squeeking noise in dashboard, rear seat with small gap in cloth (fix under warranty. )

24 Oct

Cons: Old retro style front seats, no rear seat room, small trunk, cheap interior.

18 Mar

Reliable and even after 15 years, can't beat the sound of that small block V-8 when cruising with the top down.

1 Feb

Trunk is small to accommodate the convertible top.

26 Jul

ive had the car for almost 2 years and have had 3 engines in it., Driver window fail, fuel pump failed, CD player failed and the transmission has small leak.

26 Mar

After driving it a couple of weeks and 2 washings, a small area on the front bumper has the clear coat blistered, so the car is currently back at dealer where they are repainting the bumper.

23 Jan

Though the back seats are useless and the glove department is way too small I am completely satisfied with the power my car has.

14 Oct

The trunk is small and the back seat is barely usable.

4 Mar

Ford should give their customers the choice if they want that. Some minor quality issues : squeeking noise in dashboard, rear seat with small gap in cloth (fix under warranty. )

2 Oct

The engine check light came on at 30000 miles, I took it to the dealer and they replaced a sensor at no cost since it was still under warranty.

1 Feb

but nothing that wasn't covered under the warranty.
