My review of the 08-2011's specifically 2010

So over 70,000 of my abuse been through one clutch so far which was my fault but was replaced under warranty. Still on the original brakes and rotors up front and drums and shoes on the rear. No real issues and I aggressively drive my car too. She has developed some squeaks and rattles but nothing really big that's to be expected from any car that as seen some abuse. I'm getting anywhere from 25 mpg to 28 mpg depending upon how I drive it. The interior is holding together quite well save for a dirty headliner which again is my fault I rarely use the ac kinda wish I got the dark gray interior so it doesn't show dirt as well but oh well. I lost the clutch pedal pad it was moving around on the pedal so I just took it off, the clutch itself is still really strong but then again I am on stock power levels save for the aftermarket fswerks intake. The steering wheel is showing some wear where I have my hand most of the time which is at 12 o clock , as far as driver and passenger seat go they are showing no wear yet they could use some more back support and tilt I'm short at only 5"4' so I'm always fumbling about trying to find a comfortable seating position. The carpet has help up really well I did break my door sills I need to order a new set from ford they arent that expensive. Electrically this car has help up phenomenally even with as big of a system as I have no blinking or anything like that from any of the lights even when I'm pushing it really hard, it also helps that I'm running all led & hid's so they don't pull as much power. Body wise the car is almost mint save for a couple of small door dings and some scratches on the front and rear bumpers from me taking the front headlights out and not putting a microfiber down on the paint, the rear bumper has a little bit of a scratch on it from my bike rack. Steering and suspension wise this car is a hoot...not alot of power on tap so usually I have to upshift to 3 or 2 in corners and power out....My endlinks I think are shot I still have yet to replace components like my rear swaybar and my endlinks up front also my front struts are shot I don't think my rear shocks are much better. The size of this little car has gotten me in and out of spots where someone in a bigger car wouldn't even dare go. When I bought my 2010 se coupe I didn't realize how desirable the front coupe and rear coupe bumpers where I also didn't realize how desirable the 5 speed is/was. So in a nutshell going from a 99 trans am into this is a big step I do believe that the focus is a little more fun to drive if you can believe that and I GET GREAT GAS MILEAGE TO BOOT!
