Switching from a Manual to an Automatic

It can take a little bit of time to get used to an automatic car, but the fact is more and more motorists are making the switch, and there are some benefits.

The Reliable Ford Focus

The Ford Focus has been one of the most reliable compact cars, whilst styling has improved significantly over the past few years. The 2014 Ford Focus is equipped with state-of-the-art systems and features, while it’s more spacious and a lot more comfortable.

Today the car is more low profile than ever, while there are smooth aerodynamic lines, allowing it to cut through the air with minimum resistance. The Smart 5-spoke alloy wheels add a touch of class, but you get exactly what you expect with a dependable Focus, and that’s why it’s one of the most popular compact cars on...
