It's a nice compact car with great features and comfortable.

2010 Ford Focus SEL

I like my car because it gets good gas mileage about 32 miles per gallon highway miles. It is small but not too small. I have power windows and a sun/moonroof. I can lock the windows so kids can't play with them while I am driving. It has Bluetooth capabilities so I can sync my phone up to my car audio. I can set the cruise control answer calls, turn the radio up or down, change the station on the radio all with my steering wheel. I have heated seats for the winter and a/c for the summer. My seats fold down to make room to haul things. I love the color of the outside. I have leather seats that are easy to clean. I can enjoy the radio, a CD, satellite radio, or music off my phone. I have lights in my car and I can change the color of them to fit my mood which is neat. The only issues I have is with the rear tire alignment. I have to get 2 new tires a year and make sure to rotate them because it's out of alignment.

The loud noise with windows rolled down needs to be figured out.

2010 Ford Focus SEL

I bought my car brand new in 2010. I have had no issues with it. I keep up regular maintenance such as oil changes, brakes, wiper blades, and radiator flush and fills. I bought the focus after I rented one for a week and loved the way it rode and the gas mileage was excellent. It has enough space for me and everything is in reach and instruments are easy to read. The two downfalls are when you have back windows rolled down when your driving it makes this god awful noise can't really explain it it's just really loud. In the winter the gas mileage goes down a lot.

Cute, mostly reliable car

2010 Ford Focus SEL

My vehicle is reliable but it runs rather loud. The safety features and interior hold up well and the leather seats are amazing. I bought my car at 130,000 miles and had to replace the engine due to unknown reasons a year later. Not sure why. The brakes, transmission, a/c, and everything else has held up well though. As long as you perform regular maintenance on the vehicle it will be fine.

It looks small but is very spacious. You can fit more than what it looks like.

2010 Ford Focus SEL

Besides the recall for the shocks. My car is amazing, comfortable, good on gas and works good for me. I enjoy the heated seats and the Bluetooth radio. I love the trunk space. The trunk can fit a lot more than what it looks like. The sunroof is amazing. I especially enjoy the tilt in the sunroof when it is raining. The car looks small but it is very spacious.

My awesome 2010 ford fusion.

2010 Ford Focus SEL

My car is super awesome. I get amazing gas mileage whether I am in the city or on the highway. Also when going down steep hills I have a feature that helps keep me from gaining too much speed and having to ride my brakes the whole time. There is so much room in my trunk. I have hauled 2 water heaters and a lawn mower in my 2010 ford fusion.

I don't know what this question is really asking.

2010 Ford Focus SEL

It acquires so many issues. I have only had the car for two years and the alignment is messed up and I have had thirteen flat tires within the two years I have had it. I be had to fix the breaks and already fixed the alignment once so I don't know why there's another issue with it. It's a really bad car that needs a lot of maintaining

My vehicle is a compact car that is easy to drive with a good sound system

2010 Ford Focus SEL

Very reliable car, nice heated seats, sound, and Bluetooth system. Cruise control works well and gets decent gas mileage. The black leather seats are very uncomfortable during the summer heat. Not sure if because the previous owners lived on a gravel road or just wear and tear but sometimes some sides of the car do not unlock.

- Mya T

2010 Ford Focus great gas mileage, reliable car.

2010 Ford Focus SEL

Great gas mileage, smooth ride. However, after hitting 80,000 miles the front end suspension requires work and maintenance. Very comfortable seats. This is not a family vehicle, room is tight if you have car seats for children. Reliability is great never had any issues with vehicle until 80,000 miles

- Lindsey M

The ford that keeps on going!

2010 Ford Focus SEL

I bought my focus used. It has over 211,000. Miles on it and still has many more to go, along with upkeep on regular fluid changing. The panels under both front doors are rusting out due to salt damage from traveling back and forth from Indiana to Alabama for work year round by previous owner.

- Tammy C

Great car, would buy another one if ford didn't stop making them.

2010 Ford Focus SEL

No problems at all, normal wear and tear items (brakes shocks tires etc.) Love the heated leather seats, the sun roof and it drives very well currently @ 128k miles. Gets good gas mileage (about 32 on highway and 26 city) I keep the car well maintained and expect it to last another 10 years.

- Bob T

Reliable and does not hog gas.

2010 Ford Focus SEL

The ford focus is a reliable vehicle and gets great mileage. The road noise is very noticeable. I drive about 124 miles round trip to work, so having a reliable vehicle that gets good gas mileage is a must. I haven't noticed much deterioration from all the miles, which is also great.

- Matt P

I love the lights that are on the floor and cup holders which change colors.

2010 Ford Focus SEL

It is just a loud car. You hear the road as you are driving. It is also just small and you do not have a ton of room. I haven't had a lot of issues with it. I have only had it break down once that was for something out of my control. It gets good gas mileage which I love.
