Exactly my point. I don't argue EPA, I am glad with what I get from my car in the amount of driving in the city area. But, if I'd have a daily commute of 4 miles and city driving stop-and-go, I'd go for a hybrid without afterthoughts. Unless Ford will put in the Focus the idle-stop system. THAT would be GREAT to have.
