Ford Focus RS (09-10)


5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
I appreciate decent, fast cars without having to 'conform' to the german or japaneese norm. Not affraid to be a bit different

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Every one absolutly loves it, even the green colour. Whats not to like about it?

Would you buy this car again and why?
To be honest, I dont think the'll ever make another RS like this with all the 'eco regulations' taking over. I plan on keeping this one for a long time.

What are you likely to buy next?
Dont know. This has to be the best thing in its class. Cant think of anything else I would have rather spent my money on, and I looked/test drove VXR8's, impreza's EVO 9/10s. Audi S4's. This is the best car by far.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Absolutly AWESOME! so much in-gear acceleration. Handels like the wheels are glued to the ground. So much grip. Dont worry about the FWD issues - Ford have done a cracking job.

What's it like to park?
Easy. tight turning circle, reversing sensors and reversing camera.

Have you had any problems with the car?
No. Reliable and well built. Feels very solid indeed.

What's most practical about your car?
Decent size boot, can get 2 kids in the back (for a treat!). Lots of toys and gadgets.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Mrs likes the reversing camera, and the sat nav is very easy to use. USB music option is good to. Fill up a memory stick with a few thousand songs and just plug it in. eaiser than CD's.
