- Our first foray out in the Focus
- Technical hitches don’t dampen experience
- For a brand new car, fuel economy is great
I'm going to spend a lot of time driving up and down the A1 in the Ford Focus. The 18-inch alloy wheels make the ride slightly choppy The SYNC2 multimedia system wouldn't pick up my phone for the first few hundred miles. Now works faultlessly. I'm really beginning to like the 1.5-litre diesel engine in our Ford Focus. Ford Focus has optional door edge protectors which flip out and stop paint damage. The problem is that on the rear doors they're a little slow, meaning the door doesn't shut properly on the first attempt.
