Should I Buy a Used Ford Focus?
Although Europe had been enjoying a new generation Focus since 2005, North America made due with the original model that made its debut on our shores in 2000. In 2008 an unofficial second generation Focus was introduced which wasnít much more than a heavily updated edition of the original Focus.
The car gained a new interior, Fordís SYNC infotainment software and the chassis was reinforced for better rigidity. The wagon and hatchback body styles were dropped for 2008 and a new two-door coupe model was added, but dropped again for the final year (2011).
All 2008-2011 Focus models came powered by a 2.0-liter four cylinder engine making 140 hp that could be paired to a five-speed manual or a four-speed automatic. Coupes sold in 2009 and 2010 featured slight power increases up to 143 hp when the five-speed manual was equipped.
