Here is my story. First off I have been a die hard Ford fan since birth. I have a 2002 Mercury Sable and a 2002 Ford Escort Zx2. I no longer need two vehicles and have been waiting for a vehicle that gives me all the amenities of my Sable and fuel economy of my Escort Zx2. The 2012 Ford Focus and 2011 Chevy Cruze met my criteria. I waited patiently for the 2012 Ford Focus to come out, and test drove many Chevy Cruze's in the meantime. Last weekend was the second time I was able to test drive the new 2012 Ford Focus. I had very high expectations that the 2012 Ford Focus would be the car for me. I was extremely disappointed in the 2012 Ford Focus. The interior noise was way to loud compared to the Chevy Cruze. The interior was cheap and the buttons felt terrible. The steering wheel position blocked the center digital display and I could not find a seating position that felt comfortable. The front leg room was way better in the Cruze. I did like the exterior styling of the Ford Focus sedan as compared to the Chevy Cruse but that is about it. I left the Ford dealership with such disapointment that I went to the nearest Chevy dealership and bought a brand new Chevy Cruse Eco. The things I liked about the Chevy Cruze over the Ford Focus was the interior noise is almost non existent as compared to the Focus. The interior display is much easier to read and was simpler to operate then the Focus. I had no problems finding a comfortable position in the Chevy Cruze and never did find a comfortable position in the Ford Focus. Both vehicles performed about the same on the road but I would have to say that the Chevy Cruze felt better in city driving. I pick up my new Chevy Cruze next week and have been enjoying the Chevy Cruze that the dealership is letting me drive while they pick mine up. I am sorry Ford but you lost a Ford fan to the Chevy Cruze. Next time make a better car.
