I stumbled upon this site looking for real-world information on the 2012 Focus.
This has me a bit nervous about purchasing one. I've got a dealer "hunting down" an SE hatch with a manual, 203A and sport package in gray. (apparently, this is a tall request?!?)
I drove an SEL sedan as a rental. Gas mileage sold me on it, plus the ride was quiet and firm...moreso that the Tacoma I have now or the 9th gen Corolla I had prior. I didn't get to mess with MFT or SYNC much...and maybe I should have put it through its paces. I didn't notice any drift, but we were driving on the interstate with a 30mph+ sustained wind.
The dealer is telling me that if i order the car, it'll be at least 6-8 weeks. I'm kind of wondering if I shouldn't be looking at other hatches. I'm a Toyota person..but their vehicles aren't to my liking anymore.
