Drove a 08 Focus today!!!

And I wasnt really impressed at all. It was a 4 door SE automatic. The interior wasnt any better quality then the previous foci. The fit of the pieces were alittle better though. When i first saw pics of the interior i was really digging it. But after seeing it in person it wasnt anything special anymore. The exterior of the car is still so-so. The driving dynamics of the car, didnt feel any different then my zx3. Brake feel, steering, ride, handeling were all pretty much the same, nothing too noticablly different from what I think. Acceleration doesnt seem any faster either. Hard crappy plastics still line the interior of the car.

Now I dont understand why Ford couldnt of ditched the crappy hard plastic. The Ford fusion has a pretty decent interior, without the hard plastic and you can get one for the same price of a focus pretty much. I could not justify buying a focus, especially for the increased price it is now when you can get a much much nicer fusion for the same price, thats better put together and has better styling and materials.

here here, ill agree with you fusion interior is relaly nice, drove a v6 when they 1st came out, interior was nice and felt classy, drove nice, and was like 22k?

the focus for these years i think are more pricey to make up for the loss of the last few years? how much do you think it costs to makea focu, id say under 9k? hard to say tho, differ companies mark stuff up in different ways, at my last job the markup was very high, they could prolly sell 50-100 moer a year if price was half, and theyd still make money but o well
