Test Drove 08 SES

Hello Everyone,
New to the forum and site. Test drove a new red 08 SES tuesday with a wonderful 2 whole miles on it. Got it up to 5 and came back down and bought a 06 SE Infrared instead. I've been waiting for a chance to drive let alone see the new Focus but in the end due to cash flow problems purchased the 06. I one I drove was the sedan and I was hoping for the new coupe.

Anyway, glad to find you fanatics and hope to post often.

Sincerely, Robin From Maryland

Robin,
Welcome. Tell us what you think of the 08 when you get a chance. What did (or did not) you like about it? How does it compare with the 06? Thanks.
Chuck

I got my hands on the brochure at yucca valley ford. And I got to hand it, some of the stuff they have equipped on the 08 focus is NO DIFFERENT than compared to buying a 07 Focus. It comes in S, SE, and SES but some of the options have already resided in the 05-07 focus.... just a different body style + that SYNC thingy.
