Default 2008 Ford focus

I purchased it due to high gas prices.

Best tank so far is 38.7 and thats with a/t with mostly city driving. On highway i have gotten over 42 and thats for a out of pocket cost of 14K. I hypermile some, easy to do.

Beside good gas mileage it has very good interior room and lot of trunk space.

At this time have almost 5K miles and expect mileage to increase a little more. Only thing i may add is a k & n air filter, some people like them some dont but I have used them since they came out.

Until ABS is standard and traction control is offered, I go with the Fit. Too bad. I'd like to buy American again.
