I blame the dealers for refusing to order 'difficult' colors.
I had to travel 60 miles away from a 1.5 million metro area with a dozen Ford dealers just to find a Yellow stick SE last August.
Around here, the dealers all have ONLY ugly cars in stock.
Why i have no idea, but they relish ordering bland cars.. And just seem to hate ordering any bright color, unless it is for a customer order.
Bland sells cars. Why do you think the MKVI Jetta sells better than the MKV? Or why the Corolla is the top compact car. Accords, Camrys, and other vanillamobiles are always the top sellers.

Ford will always build you a Focus, just the way you like it...thats what I did.
