Audio & nav systems
SYNC is easy to use and integrates flawlessly with my phone. Voice commands just work, rarely have to repeat myself.
Price or payments
Price was so low it was almost a concern.
Once again, this car had SYNC, nothing else I drove did. Power windows / locks / mirrors / keyless were also nice, but you will find this in any competing car.
There are better and worse than the Focus, but the car does well with the 5-speed manual. I've seen 38 mpg on a tank of gas with lots of highway driving.
Not as good as the Mazda 3, but it feels a little sporty to drive.
Safety & braking
Spongy brakes! I've asked to have the brakes checked on a few occasions, but apparently that's just how they are.
It's a bit cheap, and the '08 is missing a few things, like rear seat head rests and a dome light. Not to mention the "outside temp" and "compass" LED screens are there but non-functional.
The coupe looks a little awkward with it's tiny wheels and sedan-like roof.
Materials & workmanship
Passenger seat rattles if the backrest is too straight and a bit of plastic around the defroster vent is warped. The steering wheel button labels are wearing off as well.
SES model can be a bit rough over bumps.
