Introduction

A friend of mine just bought a new 2015 Ford Focus. I asked him what had made him choose it over the other car he was looking at, a Mazda 3. "It looks like an Aston Martin from the front, and it is cheap," he said.

You can't argue with that. But the saying "cheap and good", isn't just about cheap. And although Ford has come up with a mid-sized saloon that looks great, has reasonable specs (folding mirrors! voice control!) and offers some tasty extras as standard at a highly competitive price, it doesn't quite hit the mark in other aspects. The overall impression of the Focus is that its design and specification have been overseen by accountants, not designers or engineers.

I like the service provided. It's a one stop service center. Received follow up after receiving the highest quote. No unneccessary haggling from professional dealers.
