2014 Ford Focus SE 5 door hatchback 2.0 gas from North America
This car has so far been trouble free and I would highly recommend it
As I am very heavy (300 pounds) and tall (6 feet), I find the seats uncomfortable and front seat space tight. However, my wife at 5 feet 4 inches (a normal sized person) loves the seat comfort and legroom.
I am blown away at the fuel economy of this car. I have gotten as good as 5 litres/100 km highway driving, which is better than most hybrids. The fuel economy meets and exceeds expectations.
I find the quality of interior trim is flimsy. There are some minor issues with the way the transmission shifts at low speed, such as in stop and go traffic. This seems to be normal for this type of transmission, as it is not a fully automatic, but a dual clutch semi automatic. We accept it as it is.
The Focus rides and handles well. The very good sound deadening results in a quiet ride. Much better than the competition.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
