Nice commuter car but poor family car for kids in the back seat.

I like that the car sits higher up, I do not feel like I am riding on the ground. The seats are comfortable and it has nice features like heated seats and steering wheels. One drawback is that it is a right space, especially in the back. My children often complain they do not have enough leg room. The car does have great trunk space. I also like the outside appearance of the car. It is sporty but not overly flashy. I purchased this vehicle for my 35 mile one way commute to work. It has helped save on gas money and is nice for this purpose. Again, for a family vehicle to transport kids, it is cramped in the back. Also, my husband if six foot two and he has very little leg room for himself when he drives or is a passenger. Sometimes the radio controls can be confusing. Also at times my phone does not always want to sync. In addition, the voice recognition does not work well. I often have to repeat myself or it calls the wrong person.

Amazing vehicle in every way.

This car is fantastic. It has a smooth ride for our 1 year old son, the sound system is amazing and there are lots of different settings, as well as multiple different ways to listen including dedicated buttons for Sirius, phone, media, and radio. It has a USB port which allows you to connect your phone to play music files that way as well. The seats adjust pretty far which is great for my 6'2" husband and 5'2" me! The performance is amazing, you can go anywhere from 350-450 miles full to empty depending on how you are handling the drive, and with cruise control which you can set in lots of ways that means a great amount of mileage. The seats are moisture wicking, husband spilled a drink in the front passenger seat and he got out to get napkins. . . The seat was dry and there was a bead of liquid just there, not soaking in or anything. Overall I love this car and I have no complaints.

2018 Ford Focus - my opinion!

Overall I like the color and style of my Focus. Hatchback and sporty looking with a hot chili pepper red color. My Focus is a 2018 with only 3500 miles on it. So haven't experienced any problems mechanically yet. Gets good gas mileage, 30 mpg on average between in town and highway driving. My Focus is a 4-door so do not have to worry about people climbing over the seats to get in back. One thing I do not like about my Focus is that there is not much leg room and interior space for comfort. Other than that I am totally content with my Focus. Includes back-up camera, Bluetooth stereo, Bluetooth hands-free phone features, decent sounding stereo, cruise control, cold air and other appealing features. Good car for the price.
