I'm interested in getting a Focus2012, but I'm afraid that I might be disappointed when comparing it to my mazda protege5 (or P5 as we call it). My mazda is Tiptronic, which means that that normally it has an auto tranny, but push the stick to the right in the +/- slot and you shift manually without a clutch.

When shifting in focus using the +/- side button, how "fun" was it? I was able to test drive an auto tranny only, and my only negative about it was the windshield (smaller visibility than the P5).

I'm still seriosuly considering a focus hatchback, but will have to test drive a 'tiptronic' for a final decision.

(I know it's relatively early, but how much millage do you guys thing it'll get by the time it 'retires'? A P5 i know surpassed the 400k km, while mine is just at 191k km).
