I enjoyed the Focus Ti I drove this week, but the leather seats seemed really hard (almost no cushion for butt or back) and the steering wheel blocks half the air from both the driver side vents. Other than that, great car, and I'll probably buy one despite those two (admittedly large) annoyances. But...when to buy?
Thanks for your help!
Ford increases incentives based on days supply of a vehicle. My region has a lot of Focus currently so they increased the incentive by $500. I would look at buying by the end of the year because a 2012 will always be a better deal than a 2013.
January 3rd marks Q4 end date, sorry if I predicated incentives not changing, they never did on the Fiesta but I suppose Ford is trying to gain more buyer's in the segment!
