So the car I went with was a 2014 Ford Focus. I was almost as happy with it as I was with the Toyota Yaris I test drove. I didn’t mind the price or mileage either. Plus I really do dig the color blue.
The car has a pretty nice interior. My first car had leather seats, and I’m glad to have those again.
The car has some pretty fancy features. There’s two computer-backed monitors that tell all kinds of information. I also have a backup camera which I’ve always wanted.
The car is a Flex Fuel vehicle. It can take regular gasoline or E85. E85 is mostly ethanol, which is mostly renewable and better for the environment. It doesn’t get as much fuel per gallon so it would be more costly than gasoline. But since it’s prone to picking up dirt, I’m sticking with gasoline since I don’t want a repair bill.
But overall I’ve been really happy with my Ford Focus. I hope it serves me well.
