I agree with this. See after next quote...

My opinion: I think many of us are forgetting about when the focus was introduced... and what's going on at Ford now. The fiesta IS taking over the focus. The focus is then being pushed up a notch in PRICE AND QUALITY. If you want to have the smaller less comfy, less outfitted car, go with the fiesta. The focus isn't going to be what it was. Anyone ever tell you "your car is too small" (back in the day when the focus was new)?
I think it will be close to 30K and you WILL get what you pay for.
I also think that this new st looks awesome! But wait to see how it sounds!!!! That's where it's going to be the deal breaker
