Ford Focus 2008 review

When Ford's Focus burst onto the scene at the beginning of the millennium, it was a revolutionary small car. Unfortunately, Ford has done little with the car since then to keep it in contention with the strong import players in its segment. The 2008 Focus gets a lot of easy fixes, but it isn't the type of exhaustive redesign this car needed in order to catch up. There are still a few gems to discover in Ford's most affordable car, but in the end it will probably only influence shoppers on a value basis.
