I traded in my 97 geo metro. Everything is nicer on the focus except for the gas mileage. I lost about 10 mpg on the focus titanium but I'm not sure if that qualifies as a downgrade. I couldn't bear to trade in my titan as need a truck for hauling and towing. Plus the titan although older has features the focus does not have.

Gas was 2.40 cents a gallon when i purchased the truck. With gas over 4$ a gallon it does not get much use as a commuter these days....and suffering 110 degree weather in the metro with no ac was getting old!

I hope the focus does not end up as a downgrade from the metro all the mft and dct threads have me freaked out.
