Flawless performance thus far.

General Comments:

The 2007 Focus is a great car. It has handling and pep, all at a great value for a proven platform.

The recent redesign of the interior especially with the side bolstering of seats with side-airbags make for a great driving experience. The SES has a 6-CD Sony sound system with steering wheel controls. The A/C is plentiful and the other controls are laid out well. Interior materials are of good quality and the fit and finish reflect quality.

Performance is exceptional for the small 2.0 liter power plant. A bit of a slow starter because of low-end torque, the acceleration from 20-50 mph is brisk with the automatic. Shifting is firm and the car handles graciously at speed. On the highway, it is exceptionally quiet.

The SES ZX3 has a sharp appearance package available that gives the car more of the recent SVT and current European Rallye Sport look. We lowered the car and often get compliments on the Focus.

We researched vehicles and test drove the competitors... in the US, the Focus really has no rival in its class.

I love it! It is so cute and fun. I have the SES package, so I have heated seats, MP3, side air bags. It handles so nice, and it is a wonderful car for the price!

Congratulations on a great car!! The Focus SES is a very high-quality, well equipped car at a very affordable price. We bought a loaded ZX-3 and got it for a really good price that was way lower than most cars in its class. We've driven Fords for years (we're nearing our 60's) and have never had a seconds trouble with any of them. One of the Fords in our family went 300,000 miles with virtually zero problems. I can't say the same for the two Japanese imports we bought during lapses of our sanity!!
