Mine seems to get me now. I've driven a few Foci, but the others were just LAGGY. This one seems to hold 1st long enough not to just dog on me. The one thing they NEED to change? A GOD DAMNED GATED SHIFTER DAMMIT. I HATE the selectshift rocker thing, NEVER use it. The MINI has a gated shifter, and that adds so much to the driving experience. Without the gates, I'd rather have a manual, honestly.
