Ford Focus 2010 review

The Ford Focus is one of those small cars that's fun to drive even though it doesn't have a high-horsepower engine. It gets good gas mileage, it has comfortable seats and its interior lighting looks great. So why can I only give it a partial thumbs-up? Despite the Focus' positive traits, a number of issues drag down my overall opinion of this car.

The Focus is offered in sedan and coupe body styles, and my test car was a Focus SES coupe. The starting price of this model is $17,865 but with options the as-tested price came to $20,615. To see a side-by-side comparison of the 2008 and 2009 Focus, click here.
